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!

  • Balsamic Vinegar

    Can someone recommend a good or great balsamic vinegar? There's a multitude of different ones available, but it can get expensive pretty fast trying to find a winner. Thanks!

        Re: Balsamic Vinegar

        We are trying (the operative word here is trying) to place an order with a producer in Modena that we bought directly from in Florence. There are import and labeling issues to conquer, but we will get there eventually. These guys have everything from an everyday Balsamico, to the 25 year old Balsamico that drips like honey.

        I am not very thrilled with what we have found here; even in the specialty markets.

        We are thinking of ordering an every day vinegar and an middle-aged one.

        Still, I don't want to over-promise. We are working on it!

          Slowly but surely, we will get there. We have placed our order, and the vinegar is on it's way -- pending the nice folks at FDA.

          We will be stocking a 4 years Balsamico Riserva, and a 12 year old Balsamico Tradizionale. These are fantastic vinegars. Stay tuned, and we wil let you know as soon as they arrive.

          I will start working on the translation of their "how we do it" brochures. Balsamico is one of the really important things.

            Obviously one of those topics that few people know much about. I remember reading about the aging processes involved in producing great Balsamic V. it Italy. Kind of obscure stuff, like comparing Scotch from different distillers or wine tasting. Without the ability to taste the product and having someone knowledgeable to explain the subtle differences, it's tough to tell the differences without years of exposure.

            Somehow, I alway end up buying a Napolean brand, I believe. Not very good. The stuff I have now is worse. I look forward to trying the brands you've found.
