Back From a Break From Blogging

Feb 16, 2014

It’s been a while since I last blogged, and I have a ton of good stuff queued up to share with you. You might know that 2013 marked our 10th year at Forno Bravo, and we ended the year with a bang. 2013 was our biggest sales year ever, and it marked our 10th consecutive year of year-over-year growth. I’m really proud of that, and for all the people we... Read More

Wood-Fired Croatia (or more accurately, Istria)

Aug 29, 2013

We just returned from a very nice trip to Croatia. I have wanted to explore the Dalmatian coast for years, and the timing was right this summer. Our older daughter spent the summer working on campus in Boston (a very cool research project on pre-fab building using 3D modeling software and CNC laser equipment) and she had two weeks off before the start of school. And we put it to... Read More

Pizza Ovens, Photographs, and Photoshop

Jun 26, 2013

We had a funny interchange on the Forno Bravo Facebook page a while ago, when we posted a photo of the Andiamo oven with what looked like a photoshopped background of a business park. The basic question was — “why would you Photoshop an oven in front of a business park background?” The answer to the question was, “we didn’t.” We just used Photoshop to get rid of a couple...

Chef’s Wanted

Jun 18, 2013

We are looking for a few good chefs. You might have seen that we announced a new program today on Facebook, where we will be making a free Primavera oven available to professional, working chefs in exchange for some great recipes and photos for the Forno Bravo Community Cookbook. So, if you are a pro chef who loves wood-fired cooking (or who wants to learn to love wood-fired cooking), or... Read More

Nice Forno Bravo Newspaper Profile

Jun 07, 2013

We had a nice profile in the Salinas Californian, our local newspaper. As you might guess, they were very interested in jobs for the local community, still it’s always nice to see your company’s name in print! We’re getting a copy framed for the showroom.   The article is only available in their “archive” at this point, so here is the text. Enjoy. dtaylor@TheCalifornian.com February 9, 2013 Pizza Oven Maker Moves... Read More

DC Elite Pizza and Forno Bravo in the Washington Post

Jun 04, 2013

We had a really nice article about Dave Konstantin (Forno Bravo DC), and his DC Elite Pizza group in the Washington Post. Dave’s group, primarily wood-fired oven owners in the Washington DC area, has been meeting for years, and has grown to about 60 members. Konstantin is a lighting designer and the leader of DC Elite Pizza. The Arlington resident began selling the posh pizza oven kits part-time in 2007 and... Read More

Mobile Forno Bravo in Des Moines

May 28, 2013

Parlo Pizza (I really like their name, Parlo Pizza — which means, literally, “I speak pizza.”) is now live in Des Moines, IA, and they have received some nice press and a fun video from the Des Moines Register. Turner makes his public debut June 4 at the Beaverdale Farmers Market, and hopes to pop up at other events around town. But before you start planning the super-duper supreme, double... Read More
