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!

  • seven fires by francis mallmann

    I got this great cookbook for father's day by an Argentine chef who cooks everything with wood. Lots of wood! Francis Mallmann is the most well known chef in Argentina. Although he does have a wood oven [horno] he uses a lot of cast iron , grills and crucifixes.
    One recipie starts out ''take a medium sized cow, butterflied..about 1400lbs, and 2 cords of wood "
    While I don't have enough friends for a '' vaca entera'' there are all kinds of cooking methods here that I know I am going to try.

    I went on ABE and bought 2 copies at 45% off list as gifts for the other wood oven enthusiasts in my area.
    For those who don't know, ABE has more than 5000 used bookstores, their inventories all linked up , very useful , very addictive.

    Good find!

    It is also worthwhile to check Half.com a subsidiary of ebay as well as Amazon. In this case Half.com came in the lowest at $21.98 including shipping and their link to ebay has two sellers offering new copies at $21.99 with free shipping and Amazon at $23.10 plus (and I went no further becasue they were already more expensive than the others. However, they did offer it with free shipping if one purchased.... yada, yada, yada you know the rest). ABE (American Book Exchange) had it at $23.88 including shipping. I have had good luck with ABE in the past but have sometimes found large variances in prices so I always check at least these.

    I will check my local library, looks like an interesting read, because like you, I don't see BBQing a whole cow in my near future. I always seem end up with alot of books that I have read but not necessarily are they books that I use.

    Bests,
