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!

  • Non WFO Recipes? Lentils??


    What about a location for non WFO recipes? We all like to eat

    ....And for those WFO side dishes at the table? Alioli anyone?

    After 50 years (or more ) I've just recently discovered lentils. Last night I made my first lentil salad using my own recipe and we loved it. None left!

    So I'll post it here and if you find a place for sharing other recipe's maybe we can share some more!

    And I know this would be easily twisted into a WFO dish....start in the oven with the lentils, then finish stirring in the second half of the ingredients! Voila, smoked lentil salad!

    XJ's Lentil Salad Recipe

    Sautéed Lentil Salad

    ….….I looked at lentil salad recipes and made my own version! There are many different versions – Spanish, Moroccan, Greek, Mediterranean, Indian - lots of options!

    A lot of recipes cook the ingredients together with the lentils. I started with cooked lentils since I already had them in the freezer. The idea was to have more crunch with the stir fry vegetables instead of cooked mush.

    Finely dice vegetables and sauté in olive oil using a large fry pan:

    1 cup carrots
    1 cup celery
    1 cup red onion
    2-4 cloves of garlic, to taste
    2 bay leaves (remove later before serving)
    2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
    Black pepper to taste

    Add by stirring in to warm but not cook:

    3 cups cooked lentils
    Chopped parlsey leaves
    1 cup of diced tomatoes
    Dash of curry powder
    Black pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons Olive oil
    2 tablespoons red wine or apple cider vinegar and/or Lemon Juice

    Serve immediately warm, or later chilled.

    Notes / Options / What would I change?

    I’d remember to add the lemon juice! But the vinegar did fine.
    Lentils could be cooked in a stock instead of water.
    Some recipes use dressings instead of the olive oil and vinegar/lemon juice.
    Maybe some diced peppers, olives, or cucumber.
    Garbanzo or Black Beans would be a twist.
    Feta cheese too.
    Other fresh herbs like Cilantro? Mint? Lime juice?
    Maybe some brown rice or whole wheat orzo pasta?

    This can be a very versatile dish. It’s very good, filling and nutritious
    …and you know I really didn’t measure anything, so adjust to your tastes!
