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!

  • Wood Fired Oven in France

    Here are a couple of pizza ovens from France. It's interesting that Nice was part of Italy until 1860 (Nizza), when House of Savoy gave it to France in exchange for support during the Italian war of indepence which formed modern Italy. There are oodles of wood-fired ovens in southern France, but the pizza is really different. The pizza chefs can't help themselves, and really beat up the dough, so I find them tough, and they use gruyere or compte cheese, which is a great cheese for eating and sauces, but seems really heavy for pizza. The flour is also different. I am posting a little more on flour in the Ingredients forum.

    Also, if you missed it, take a look at the brick oven in the Papal Palace -- it is earlier in this forum.
