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!

  • Grupo di Amici, Chicago

    Here is a photo of a good-looking FB Ristorante oven in Grupo di Amici, in Chicago. Ken Shook, our installer in Illinois did a great job, and I think the oven looks really good. Ken is an Italian-trained Venetian plasterer, and he does a great job.

    That said, he hasn't eaten at the restaurant yet, but he says the menu and layout are excellent.

    So, you can fly to Chicago, go to a Cub's game (it's in the neighborhood), and have a great pizza.

    The bullet hanging from the ceiling looks like it came out of the gun on the South Dakota & Iowa Class Battleships like the USS South Dakota, New Jersey or the Mighty Mo. Both the fixture and the oven are impressive.

      Thanks to you both for the posts. Just one quick correction ... the name of our restaurant is spelled "Gruppo di Amici". We're also about a 15 minute train ride from Wrigley Field right off of the Jarvis Red Line "El" stop.
