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!

  • Wood fired restaurants in UK?

    Hi from Essex in the UK, can anyone recommend a good wood fired restaurant in London or surrounding area?

    there are loads in London but from the Essex side you could try the Lauriston, a big pub in Hackney on Lauriston road. They installed a wood oven a year or so ago, I know it as we did a wood oven installation just around the corner in someones garden.
    It was a surprise to me that things have changed so much as it was squats and rents in '80's. I'm from Ilford originally but now near Bath in the west country.
    Another place thats getting a reputation is in the railway arches I think in Atlantic rd, Brixton. They make a sour dough pizza in a wood oven. A mate of mine reckons they're brilliant and quite cheap.

    happy hunting A

      Thanks for the suggestions, I will look into those. Saw your build down in Surrey in the forum, looks excellent and what a place!
      Where did you get the actual oven from, if not from Forno?

        In the end Terracotta Warehouse supplied the oven as they have a good turnaround and we buy quite a few of them. The Italian oven is pretty good for the price but watch their packing as the base turned up cracked and we decided to replace it with firebricks instead of waiting for another oven to turn up. Matthew, the new FB dealer in the UK seems pretty efficient and has ovens in stock now so we may go back to them in the future. The problem earlier was FB decided to make the ovens in the US so it was actually impossible to get them without buying a container load. With the new dealer, its not a problem any more.
