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!

  • Gold hunting.

    I went out to a spot yesterday that I frequent hunting for gold, they said that it was going to be about 30 degrees c, but it topped 35.... it was way too hot, with more on the way.
    I had intending spending two night but I high tailed it out of there at 3 am this morning, just after the Koalas started fighting.

    Its a 3 hour trip both ways, but when the weather is kind its well worth the effort.

            Brickie,
            Thank's for the update for those of us who are having to work! The outback must be a really great place to get a way from it all . The mental pictures that I got from the pic of the clothes on the bank and Lauretius' "dangling participle" comment has left me not wanting cackle berries for, I think a long while, though .
            Glad, that you are having a great time!

                    There is always gold taken from the creek in Beechworth, tiny bits, its minute stuff, plenty of black sands too.

                    The other good thing about this creek is the fact that every gemstone except emerald can be found in it.

                        Did stop at the bakery though.

                          Not this time, we have stopped there before though, I heard something about the owners going broke and having to sell it, it was never the same after.

                            I think you have your wires crossed about the bakery
                            Ok, my bad, but why the angry face?

                            If it is still the same owner then something did change some time ago to turn the bakery in to just another ordinary bakery.

                              Probably tourism, greed and franchising it tends to kill the love.
