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!

  • Bonaire Dutch Antilles

    OK , it's -20C this AM in the ''Valley'' and I am sure looking forward to my trip to Bonaire. Although mostly known for it's world class scuba/snorkling me and my buddy go for the like wise world famous windsurfing at Lac Bay .. this is our 3rd trip.If it's not windy we drive up the coast to one of the many snorkling spots and within 20ft of the shore you are in technicolour reefs!
    No WFO's on the island... a shame , but the Mahi Mahi will be running !

      I will get even with you! When you are freezing your buns (instead of baking them) in February I will be in the Bahamas! (Not as warm as Bonaire but... warm enough!)

        Funny that's what my wife said to me too... We had 6 months of snowcover here last winter and I burn up a lot of points around here on my yearly junket.
        Would it make you feel any better Francis if I told you that last year I caught a case of dengue fever [albeit a mild case] , first I thought it was the rum , then maybe a bad goat stew.. but it was dengue , now endemic in most tropical areas.. .. and you watch out in the bahamas Tex.. they have it too , but then they have it in South texas as well .. wear your bug dope! and no poncy stuff get the Deet!.
        Francis if you are not nice to me I will file weather reports from Bonaire!

          Hey , I have been away in southern ontario [a5hr drive@100KMPH+] where they just got their 1st snow . And I came home to see the news of weather in the rest of the world .. and I am sorry for you ... we got 3-4 M of snow each year for the last # of years , but we are ready for it. I feel for those in Europe and the southern States who are suffering . Other than flapping my beach towel and sending some warm air north all I can do is shut up about it so .... ................... any way I don't leave for 2 weeks and I am not looking forward to flying into Miami... getting up @4:30 to go through the ''new'' enhanced screening /no carryon world... jeesh!!!!!

            Ah well, like you at least we're used to snow here and have the clearing tools and heating/insulation systems to deal with it. Pretty amazing weather all over at the moment...

            Tell you what, to make up for your snorkling trip (and a piddling little bit of hassle at the airport doesn't even begin to do that) you need to at least post some nice pics when you get back. OK?

            You don't have to get dengue fever again though. That would be going a bit far.

              I'm back from 3 weeks on the island , I ate fish till I grew gills, worked on my carving jibe and the only big decision every morning was '' do I need a clean tee shirt?''.
              From living in colour to going back into white on white ... and in the morning deciding what weight of long underwear to put on.......... sigh !!.
