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!

  • Pizza Party!

    We did a pizza party last night for our daughter and son-in-law and four of their 30ish friends. It was the other's first real introduction to WFO pizza.

    Started with Margharita (from FBs Pizza Margharita kit) using my freshly made mozz - rave reviews! (Well done James! A great set of ingredients.)

    Then my homage to conventional American pizzarias - Pepperoni with red sauce, mozz, and parme.

    Then, oven roasted mushrooms on a white sauce with thyme and a touch of parme. More raves.

    Grilled asparagus with fontina, serrano ham, and a touch of parme. Not as unanimous as the mushrroms but those that liked it really liked it.

    Quattro formaggio. Claims of heart attacks followed this one.

    Caramelized onions, blue cheese and walnuts to close it out.

    Dessert was impossible pie with home grown straberrries and whipped cream.

    The wine consumption was enthusiastic - six bottles for the eight of us!

    The overall favorite though was the margharita! The general comment was that the ones they had had before were insipid and this was simply divine and really showed off he advantages of great dough and a WFO.
