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!

    Anyone had much experience doing fish in their WFoven?

    I bought some cedar planks to try but it's my first time with them.

    I worry about fish being too delicate and the short cooking time.

    What about some kind of poaching/caserole??

    Any experience or ideas appreciated.

    Re: Fish

    Hi Jim, I have cooked fish like Sea Bass and Snapper on a grill over ashes in a cooling oven. It isn't something to be left to it's own devices as it cooks quite quickly. I imagine sardines would be delicious cooked the same way and basted with lemon juice and parsley.

    Fish is something I am looking forward to experimenting with. Should be great simply placed in a shallow cazuela and a little garlic olive oil and herbs or a little poaching liquid. Cedar boards are a popular restaurant innovation here and should, if soaked in water, do a great job of keeping the fish moist whist cooking. It may be a good idea to pre-heat the boards. There is the danger of cooking faster on top if put onto a cold board. Either that or turning the fish would probably work. They are also a talking point when put on the table but I'm unsure whether they add to the flavour of the dish or not.

    Enjoy!
