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!

  • Garden State WFO Group ????

    Aren't we in the NorthEast of the USA? Just because I am near the Jersey Shore and go to SeaSide and SeaSide Park doesn't mean you have to fugettaboutit. Let's see some East Coast spirit.

    I think technically northeast ends at Greenwich CT. Mid-atlantic is such a non-location, though, and really, what do we have in common with Virginia?

      That's too funny; thanks guys. I thought long and hard about about a Mid-Atlantic region -- my parents met at Falls Church, VA high school, all those years ago.

        New Jersey is in the Northeast. I am pretty sure the technical term for the Northeast is "New Jersey and those other states to the right of it on a map".

        I think New England starts at Greenwich.

          Now watch: Pennsylvania will be lobbying for inclusion.

            stopped off at Corrado's today to get some prices on cheeses. The Mozzarella curd looked very good at $2.49 per pound i think. can't wait to start boiling the water.

              It has been a year since my last post. What's that all about? Getting ready to fire up this weekend. Sour dough pizza Friday night and artisan breads on Saturday.

                We had a really good firing this weekend. Fired it up on Saturday, made 15 pizza's, 6 artisan breads, 4 boules, and 3 ciabattas, then cooked a turkey breast all on the same firing. Started at 9 am ended around 6:30 pm.

                    Did you try Clayton Block? They have locations in Monmouth and Ocean Counties that I know. Last time I was in one of their brick yards picking up white portland and marble chips to make terrazzo I saw a few piles of them. That is where I got mine a few years ago.

                      We are firing up again this weekend. Last week we had a big party and made over 30 pizzas. The oven was still hot the next morning so we threw in some more wood for a short warm up, swept it out and baked the left over dough into a load of stromboli. Can't beat it for sure. Probably going to do that again after the rain on Saturday, I hope.

                        We are thinking of starting private lessons in operating a wood fired oven to include use of sour dough starter and home made mozzarella. Developing a hand's on approach and proper hand outs. We will be looking for our first group of classes to practice with and fine tune our program.
