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 slab is poured (the sweat, I tell you, too!)

    Hi guys,

    today marks a first milestone for Il Forno del Gallo chi Canta: we poured the slab! Bianca came to the party once I'd done a third saying she took pity on me... Then it was filled buckets with sand, gravel and water whenever I needed them - and homemade beer, homebaked bread with salami, too! I breezed through the seven-hour job without really noticing... :-)

    Cheers,
    Carioca

    First time I have ever seen a mixer hooked up to a tractor PTO!

      It's a Teagle TipMix 50 from the U.K. - I bought it in the 'Seventies as an attachment for my faithful Leyland 154 tractor... both have been performing well over the years, the mixer mainly for small jobs around the place, the tractor as the power plant for a scoop, single-tine ripper, disc plough (briefly) and last but not least for an Italian PTO-driven water pump!

      Ciao,
