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!

  • Aussie too (well, almost)

    Hello there!

    Just realised there is an Introductions thread, so I better follow protocol (after firing off heaps of queries at unsuspecting senior members)...

    I am German, in Australia since 1971, father of four and married for 42 years to a very patient Italian ragazza called Bianca (these days she only blows her stack when I utter the word 'stone oven').

    While trying to repair an expensive Aussie electric oven for the umpteenth time (failed this time) I thought of building an old-fashioned wood-fired bread-baking oven for us.

    I discovered this excellent ideas exchange, and my plans are slowly coming together - just hope I can finish it while I'm still only 70...

    Carioca

    NB: We've been baking our own sourdough bread for perhaps 30 years now, 2 or 3 times a week. My favourite is a wholemeal-wheatgrain-rye meal loaf - snap attached.
