I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Beef Stew

    I did a beef stew yesterday, using a recipe from Barbara Kafka's great book Roasting- a simple art. I made a double batch, as we are hosting the extended family for the holiday. This isn't even for a meal proper, just fill in food.

    Took bigger than you would think cut up beef pieces, and in a bowl with some evoo, fresh cracked pepper (we just got a battery powered pepper grinder..it is so great, you have to get one) and kosher salt. Coated the meat. Fully saturated oven, probably 560 or so. Big jelly roll pan, so that none of meat is touching. about 12 min per side. got nice and brown. Put that into the stew pot. Then, potatoes, carrots, onions, all chopped up, oiled, salt and pepper, then roasted, nobody touching their neighbors. nice charred spots. Then that goes into the stew pot, then whatever you normally put in your stew (red wine, beef broth, spices, tomatoes, etc)

    simmer on low, then cool overnight to blend the flavors.
