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!

  • What a great day!

    Sunday, October 8, 2006. Up at 5:00 AM, ran the Army Ten Miler in DC. Home at 10:30. Fired up the oven at 11:30. Tapped Keg at noon. Hosted a party of 13 people, made 13 pizzas over the next several hours. Not a single slice was left over when the last guests left at 6:00 (but happily, half of the keg is left!).

    Using residual heat from the pizzas, I baked some chicken and an apple crisp.

    I was more or lesss on my feet from 5 AM until 6 PM. I didn't have time to take a shower from the run until 8:00 PM.

    What a blast. Can't wait to do it again.

    Cheers,

    - Fio
    There is nothing quite so satisfying as drinking a cold beer, while tending a hot fire, in an oven that you built yourself, and making the best pizza that your friends have ever had.

    Nothing like a nice long run to get you ready for a feast. And is there any better food after that run than pizza and beer? My fabulous wife bought me a "kegerator" fridge about six months ago in which she keeps a keg of beer from her father's excellent microbrewery. Life is good. I just have to get back on track with long runs on Tuesday - my day off. It's become our pizza night.
