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!

  • pebble paving

    Here's a couple of pics using local materials. These stones wash down from the mountains during the storms and get spread on the beach. You can pick them up in the river washes.

    The make a very durable pavement that is found in various places, some very decorative others just paving.

    I saw one project in Granada where they just set them in earth (clay?) and compact with a ram....

    Re: pebble paving

    I love these! Still trying to convince my long-suffering husband that this is the kind of thing we need on our front doorstep....

    Now lets see if I can find a relevant pic from our last hloiday in italy. Right. The second one isn't exactly relevant but I've wanted an excuse to post it somewhere for ages...

      That's a gorgeous stoop and rockwork. Did you get a picture of the entire door? I'd love to see it. I used to walk around a take pictures of doors in Italy.

        George, I love the different doors here and could do a book that covered the many old doors and the tosca stone framework just in this one town.

        You can create about anything with those pepple designs., the poor mans mosaic

          No, I didn't get the whole door, more's the pity. It was a really beautiful place to stay though. Our flat was on the top of a small hill on the coast, in the middle of a small medievil village. ALL the doors looked like that, so did the houses - the sort of place you walk through and think, gosh I wonder what it looks like from the inside?

          I just googled pebble mosiac... so cool... so many things to do, so little time...

              These are the pebble mosaics I was looking for on the internet. Didn't find them though, so here's a photo from out of a book...

              I don't know how well the pics will turn out, so let me just point out
              that that stuff on the walls isn't wallpaper!
