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!

  • The Many Faces of Varkala

    The serene town of Varkala buzzes with activity during the vacation season. A perfect beach escapade for leisure travelers, honeymooners and medical tourists, Varkala has much to bestow. Long swims in the azure sea, idle evenings watching brilliant sunsets, early morning strolls, shopping to your fill, relishing the scrumptious cuisine, the high spirits of alcohol and smokes, there is much to do while holidaying on this seaside township.

    The main sites at Varkala that are worth a visit are its sacred temples and places such as Janardana Swami Temple, Sivagiri Mutt and historic spots such as Anjengo Fort. A jaunt to the Golden Islands, Ponnumthurut Island, Kappil Lake or Varkala tunnel is an ideal idea for a relaxing and scenic day out. Elephant rides, catamaran cruise or fishing trips, each activity renders a fresh thrilling sensation. The beach bazaars and Tibetan shops are the hot spot for shopaholics with its unique artifacts, handicrafts, jewelry, incenses and spices.

    Ayurveda therapies and spa massages and therapies with Acupuncture, Reiki, Aromatherapy etc., being a rage among tourists are provided by various Kerala tour operators in their holiday packages.Beach holidays at Varkala are best during the winters in Kerala, from December to February, while tourists do flock in during the summers that extend from March to May disregarding the heat and humidity. Each passing monsoon witnesses growth in medical tourist arrivals and there is constant demand for Ayurveda therapies, Yoga and other alternative treatments and spa therapies. The massages and medications alongwith leisure activities included in Kerala Ayurveda & Monsoon packages assure tourist traffic from June to September.
