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!

  • Helping Hurricane Sandy Victims Through Pizza

    From the Wood-Fired Blog:

    This story really makes me feel good. I received an email and a photo today from Joseph Pergolizzi, the owner of The Fire Within, our partner in the mobile catering oven market. We’ve worked with Joseph for years, and he was in California just a few weeks ago at FB Expo, where he did a great job of overseeing the cooking and hands-on demo’s.

    Joseph was originally from the east coast, and he rallied some friends and four catering pizza oven customers, and they have been making pizza and helping feed people struck by Hurricane Sandy for the past week — all because he thinks it’s the right thing to do. Hey, they use wood, so they don’t even need power or gas.

    You can send money to the crew by PayPal to “Peter Seminara” <petersem@earthlink.net> on his cell phone at 201-264-7822. That’s what we did.

    Here is the text from Joseph’s email:

    This past Saturday in Staten Island.

    300 pizzas on Saturday. Not only did we bake at a FEMA / donation site we had cars shuttling your pizza’s into the areas where people didn’t want to leave their homes because of looters.
