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!

    Hi All Perthites...

    Just to let you know that Theo of Little Ceasars will be doing a woodfired pizza baking demo at Kitchen Warehouse, Osborne Park tomorrow - Sat, 10 April. I think it runs 10:00 - 12:00 but this needs to be checked.

          Yes, I was in KW yesterday during my lunch break and noticed that they had plenty of pizza gear on special. One thing you may be interested in getting is the bargain price tomato pureeer. At $39 (down from $69). Couldn't believe my eyes and nearly bought one for doing a very quick batch of sauce when don't want to set up the KA attachment. Pizza stones kits were down to $9 which is also good value... shop till you drop on Monday!!!

            Update on this one...

            I attended this morning and was quite impressed with the demo. It started with a dough making session (in a KA) and then proceeded with a shaping and ROLLING PIN activity. I was standing at the front so was made to ball and shape some dough. I cringed when the rolling pin was thrust into my hand and told to deal with the defenceless ball.

            Anyway, the demo went on to "cook" some pre-baked pizzas from ceasars to the delight of attendees. I didn't actually try any but they looked a bit dry - an assertion supported by the fairly low dough hydration he had made. Someone in the audience said a similar thing. But, this guy knows what he is doing and definitely creates raphor with his audience. By all accounts he makes a mean pizza and he has a strong following, and the really nice thing is that he is prepared to share his knowledge with others. This is unusual for someone who has a commercial interest in maintaining secrecy.

            So, overall a great experience and an enjoyable morning at Kitchen Warehouse. They had 50% off Circulon pans and I ended up struggling out of the shop with 2 new pans to add to my collection. Lifetime warranty and commercial grade so they should last a while!

            I definitely recommend a visit to see Theo in action if he heads down to your neck of the woods.

            PS - please excuse the poor quality pics - they were taken with the notoriously inferior camera on the iPhone.
