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!

  • Blessed by a true Pizziaolo

    This past weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting and being assisted by a gentlemen by the name of Michael Fairholme who stopped over and shared his great knowledge of the whole pizza experience from start to finish. It truly was one of the most enjoyable evenings I have had in a long time. Having a true pizzaiolo assisting us was truly a awesome learning experience. Michael assisted us from start to finish and provided us some great tips from dough making and stretching, enhancing our toppings and cooking techniques. He originally had planned to spend two hours but ended up staying over 5 hours as we had other guests over as he was having a great time with our friends.

    We probably made over 10 pizzas and Michael stated they were pizzas he would serve in a restaraunt in Napoli. He said we were very already close to producing the ones we made this past weekend prior to him coming over, and now with his tips we feel we are now there to making a pizza worthy of a pizzaiolo's approval.

    Michael is a professional and truly a Pizzaiolo!! His knowledge and experience in the kitchen as well as producing a great pizza is invaluable. I am so fortunate we live close to Michael and had the opportunity to spend an evening with him. I promised Michael next time he is in town I will have him over for dinner and have my mom over as well as she is an awesome Italian cook.
