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!

  • Chili Cookoff Contest - MAJOR OPPS!!

    Chef and I were asked to enter a chili cookoff contest at a small catholic school just down the street from us. Of course we said yes and decided to make a veggie chili - we wanted to stand out.

    We fired up the oven at noon and started to prep. I took photos along the way made a poster board to show how we cook in a WFO. It was all looking wonderful.

    Then it happened....we were packing up the truck the last thing we needed to get in was the cast iron dutch oven with the chili; as chef Phil is closing the gate to the back yard with the chili in hand...BANG... chili all over the drive way!!

    All that work...all that love...We will try again next year!!

    This was the info I had on my poster along with these photos

    Crock Pots are for WHIMPS!!

    Try Silly Willy – Philly’s Veggie Chili.

    We took a green approach to our entry - we used only fresh produce and cooked in our wood fired brick oven. No animals were harmed – No dependence on non-renewable fuel sources!! All vegetable scraps were used to make a vegetable stock or used as compost in our garden.

    Tomatoes, Jalapenos and Corn were dry fire roasted (no oil) in cast iron fry pans (didn’t everything grandma made in her cast iron skillet taste SO good!!)

    All other vegetables were sautéed in cast iron skillet with just a bit of vegetable oil. Then it all comes together in a 9 quart enameled cast iron Dutch oven. We let this simmer for an hour.

    We hope you enjoy our unusual entry!!
