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!

  • Forno or cammino?

    There's an Italian lady who works in the cafeteria at my workplace and we have a pretty good rapport so I was telling her about my oven. Her English isn't great, but better than my Italian, but at one point she looked a bit puzzled by my description. "Forno" I said, and after a bit more back & forth in the conversation, she caught on, saying "Ahhhh, a cammino ...". I asked what the difference was between a 'forno' and a 'cammino' and got an explanation but the language barrier got in the way so I'm still in the dark.

    Anybody know what a cammino is?

    I tried a Google search and it seems to be a word for 'the way', as in roadway, but may have something to do with a chimney too?!

    Well "cammino" two M's from what I can find out is something like "I walk" I think...camino with only one M is "chimney"...I will defer to the more knowledgeable in Italian(James maybe?) to put together the significance

      Yo Dutch!

      So you're telling me my '69 El Camino was in all actuality a Spanish chimney?
      Maybe they were the first landing party of TransFormers

        Not a Spanish chimney...an Italian chimney! Thought Caminos were Mexican anyway...way better than the Ford Ranchero!
