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!

  • Robot Coupe for dough

    Has anyone heard or have experience using a Robot Coupe to mix dough?

    OK based on the below comment I thought I better post a picture or two.

      Of course humanoids use Robot Coupes and food processors to mix dough. And they probably use them to mix wallpaper paste. But that doesn't mean they are worth a %^#& You can do a better job with a variable speed electric drill and a home made dough hook.

      The problem is very simple. Overworked, overheated, oxidized dough. It's fine for people who want to make mediocre, tasteless dough in an hour but it will have the qualities of fine cardboard with a tight crumb and none of the unique nature most of us look for in dough for a WFO. Taste, etc. will be substantially impaired. There is nothing gentle about a Robot Coupe (great food processor by the way). It has only one speed and the dough doesn't have a chance. It will be beaten to a pulp, torn, and destroyed within 20 to 30 seconds.

      Feel free to try to prove me wrong! But you won't build a reputation as a great WFO pizzaiolo using food processor dough!

        Glad I asked, I found a deal on a commercial model and I will pass. Thanks.

          I used to use dough hook on a kenwood chef and it was acceptable for making dough but since I started hand kneading the dough I wouldn't go back to any mechanical device. The quality of the finished dough is way superior. The exercise isn't bad either.

            Unless you kneaded 5kilos or more each time on a daily basis.

              Hand kneading actually works pretty well up to at least 10 kilos/25 pounds and there are people who go far higher. It can be far less messy than a mixer though it does require a bit more attention. The only mixers IMO that can match hand mixing are a spiral or a fork and they are specialty mixers that are $$$, Some people think the Electrolux is near comparable but I have not been able to try one so....

              I was trying to be funny Chip but I wanted to emphasize how bad the dough is relative to hand or minimally mixed dough. And I long ago made a batch of dough to verify how bad it was so my "rant" was not just theoretical!

              Do it by hand. It is SO easy once you get the hang of it!

              Bake on!
