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!

  • It's a small world

    Hum along with me.

    I receive a very nice email from a family that built a Pompeii Oven in Walnut Creek, CA. They are having a great time and the oven has helped bringing their family together -- they have teenages, etc., and they are Italian-American, so it is giving the new generation a link back to their family in Italy (grandparents are still here). Very good.

    Anyway, the small world part is that they hosted an event yesterday, and ended up inviting my brother and his family, who live in the east bay. He started telling my brother about the oven and how he built it, and my brother basically says, yes -- I know the crazy guy who started Forno Bravo.

    That is definitely an it's a small-world story.

    You do mean the Split Enz version right?

    It's a small world, and you must agree
    It's not a very big house, for a large family
    People moving out or making home improvements
    but the basic problem never seems to go away
    It's a small world

      There are definitely different ways of looking at the story. Happily, I get along well with my brother.
      Thanks for the insight Patrick.

          Hey, I live in Walnut Creek, where is this oven and does the guy know how to make good pizza? I see that lot's of your family members live in this area, perhaps we should all get together and talk about you guys!

              I lived in West Pittsburg (AKA Dodge City) but went to Walnut Creek every week to "cruise the strip".
