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!

  • Ancient cooking - England

    Hi Folks

    I travelled to the UK a few years back and visited all the local attractions. Although I had been there before (as Mum is from Newcastle) I was ten at the time so the memory was a bit sketchy.

    A couple of the stops were Anne Hathaways cottage (Shakespeares wife) and Hampton Court.

    I had special interest in the kitchens and took some good photos.

    I'll post them when I get off the train tonight. It's a great insight into how things were done in the 1500's.

    Better late than never!

    Alex

    Oh, and another one I saw wasn't ancient...it's a grill made out of a Carlton beer keg. Will most certainly do that in the future. Pics also to follow.

              Hello Bert,
              Thanks for sharing your pictures, very interesting. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

              Looks like Mrs Shakespears's oven was constructed with a Sailor course and a teardrop dome . It's doomed to fail...in the next 500 years. I wonder what ratio of sand to cement they used?

              Thanks again,
              AT

                    Cement has been around for a little over 7000 years that we know of. The Egyptians used it, the Romans used it, and it was in use in mortar continuously for at least 3000 years. Portland cement was in the late 1800's but natural cements have been around since man discovered fire.
