Dosa w/ coconut chutney. Nice  ;D No naan package, John?  :-D It's not a tandoor, but your oven could definitely match the results from one.

John,
That potato pie looks great!  Does it have cheese?
Your pizzas are better and better.

From when I worked with John, those things on the legs just raise the table higher.

Nico under the table are a simple set of what are called bed  risers available at any store such as bed bath and beyondor container store  They raise the table closer to height of the surrounding tables and gives a nicer presentation right around $10 bucks for set of 4  work great and pretty stable too

Hi Nico,

Another trick is to use PVC pipes to raise your table. You just need to cut them to length and slide them onto the table's legs. It is very inexpensive if you were to lose them, won't rust or deteriorate over time.

Yes PVC works welll depending on you table base. if its flat bottom no go I also use a 4X4" piece of PVC board under my tables for the skinny legs dont go into soft grass or ?? Has small hole just bigger than screw base  also 1/2 way in center that I place the adjustable prep table legs into. then quicly adjust screw base to level. very slick and doesnt table cant slide off !

Had the opportunity to cook in the Four Grande Mere 950B again this weekend at the annual Rick M (memeber here) Christmas party, and what a party it is ! Sweet set up tents heaters ... thanks Rick ! Some great Pies were put out for the guest to enjoy!  I had  a great helper Jimmy Coponi the 19 YO  Youngest pizziaolo who was written up on slice. Umm Yes he is Passionate ! But not really into  ant type of toppings. Said he only knows the  Margherita. A huge confident and skilled  helper against 100 + people - and he has a greed to help me this season  when he can at Flirting with Fire   :chef:   Fun Night !! here are a few pies This is my 61% dough 10 hr bulk 1.5 day cold ball and 10 hrs room temp 60ish came out great !   you can see in the first shot how the dough was a bit cold from being outside but I cranked the car up  and that was my dough room :)
