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!

  • Cento dop san marzano tomatoes

    Has anyone tried the Cento brand DOP certifed San Marzano tomatoes?

    I just returned from a trip to my local Publix grocery store. I found these tomatoes at $2.99 for a 28oz can. Not a weekly special, or hot buy...they have reduced there "every day" price down from $5.49 a can.
    I am used to paying around $5 a can locally for any DOP tomatoes and about $4 a can from FB as well as a couple of other online sites (plus shipping).

    Long story short, I bought 12 cans. Anyone have any feedback on these tomatoes before I go back and buy their entire inventory? I know this must be a pricing error.....Publix is good, but not known for being cheap.

    I have not used them myself but a VPN pizzaria here in San Antonio uses them and I thought they were superb some of the best I have tasted. That is a great price!

      I've used them. I like them just fine. Other than the Delallo ones, they're the only other San Marzanos I can get around here.

        We buy the Cento DOP San Marzanos here in RI at Price Right for $2.39 each and they are GREAT!! Other brands around here are $4 - $5 per can.

          We get them around $4 a can in Tallahassee. I love them. Did a taste test tonight with Muir Glen organic vs. the Cento DOP San Marzano and it was amazing. The Cento tastes like the Platonic Ideal of a tomato. The Muir Glen (which I cook with all the time) tasted metallic in comparison.
