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!

    Thank you for the invite Chris but I'm sorry I'm going to have to pass. Little Dom's is very close from where I live but I've never been there. I would like to check this place out one of these days....

      No worries, I proposed the date and time mostly because I hate the, "what's the best time for all of us" syndrome. I'll be over there at abour 11am Feb 2, just to see what they do and what I can learn from them.. Oh yea, and to eat well.

        Re: Los Angeles Area - Meet and Eat lunch at Little Dom's

        Here is my report on Little Dom’s
        I arrived about noon ordered the breakfast pizza and the Ricotta Gnocchi w/ Tomato, Basil, & Pecorino. The Pizza crust was amazingly thin and cracker like at the outer edge. How in the holy heck do they do that? Well, we asked to go into the kitchen to check out the oven and that was fine. The dough looks about like what I’m doing, maybe a bit less hydration than my dough. The chef worked the dough into a small 5” round and then dropped it in a container of flour, shook it off and continued to work the dough off the counter, vertically, by hand. Working the edge round and round until the center looked like wax paper in places. Then he placed the dough on the peel to add the sauce. I don’t know how many pizzas I’d screw up if I did it this way. I wonder if some advantage of working vertical is that when you place the finished pizza blank on the floured peel you know that you’re going to have just what flour you want underneath to facilitate sliding the pizza into the oven. Anyway, the Pizza with Sunnyside Up Egg, Speck, Mozzarella, & Tomato Sauce was an eye opener. Great sauce, the egg was cooked directly on the pizza and perfect, the speck was lean and not too salty. If I lived in the neighborhood, I’d be there regularly.


        PS: Gnocchi was great too.
