Mobile Casting oven for A Girl and her Dragon, plus founder Kylie

Kylie, as part of her Nueva School’s “Quest” program has decided to launch a Wood Fired Catering Business!  A Girl and her Dragon Wood Fired Pizza.  The Quest program give students the opportunity to pursue their own interests throughout their high school experience.

Forno Bravo is proud to support young entrepreneur Kylie as she seeks to launch her very own wood fired catering company.  A Girl and Her Dragon Pizza will be launching May 7th as part of her school’s Quest night and already has ten events lined up this summer.

Below is a picture of Kylie next to her trailer manufactured by Il Pizzaoilo in Sacramento. Il Pizzaoilo used a Casa 90 wood fired pizza oven kit to keep the trailer weight low, but provide enough volume to support small to mid sized events.

Kylie got her first taste of how wonderful the nationwide pizza oven community is at The Fire Within’s February 2015 workshop and knows the Forno Bravo blog will reach all those great people and more.

 Kylie’s first event is scheduled for May 7th in Northern California, so lets all wish her luck!

Kylie has graciously agreed to become a contributor on the Forno Bravo Blog detailing adventures into wood fired catering, so stay tuned, we will give you an update when we are closer to launching.  So please subscribe to our Blog and track Kylie’s journey.

The second picture is the Dragon, in full flight (okay, maybe day three of the cure process isn’t a fully grown dragon, but its close).  Forno Bravo will finish curing Kylie’s oven next week so stay tuned.

Thanks to Feedback from Dealers / Customers on our prints

To the Forno Bravo faithful, we appreciate the feedback and suggestions regarding our print layouts for our wood fired oven kits.  Many of our technical support calls over the years have been because our prints were more about oven use, then install.  That is changing!  We are in the process of updating all our drawings to provide Architectural views for Designers / Installers as well as key component parts.

We are confident that our customers and their contractors will find this new format much friendlier and, as always we welcome input / suggestions.  Just email us at support@fornobravo.com.

When each oven family’s prints are ready, we will keep you posted with Forum announcements.

The Casa and Premio series ovens are all done and ready on our website.  They are under the “Dimensions” tab on the main site.

We are working on the Giardino ovens now and then the commercial products.

For a quick peak, check out the Casa 90 print.Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 6.32.53 PM

Key improvements include:

  • A nice clean visual of the Front, Side and Top view of the oven with all the installed components layered.  This came from all our customers suggestions;
  • We added the minimum recommended foot print for the installation.  This assumes that your pizza oven install is going to use stucco and not a thick structure to enclose it.  Thank you to Home Pizzeria Ovens of Florida / New Hampshire for that suggestion.
  • Insulation and Flue specifications are clearly identified.
  • Ship weight and crate size are listed in the bottom left to make planning for a delivery easier courtesy of Outdoor Pizza Ovens in Canada.
  • Minimum clearances to combustibles are clearly identified in the top view thanks to The Arch in North Carolina;
  • Hearth specification is listed for convenience so you don’t have to refer to the install guide when planning;
  • A Decorative Facade Allowances chart is included to give you an estimate on how different appearances may increase your foot print.

Designing the World’s Finest Pizza Oven into your home keeps getting easier.

Thanks again and have a great Spring planning your project!

Fox Pizza Bus

How cool is this.

A Forno Bravo pizza oven in a double decker bus roaming the streets of Los Angles. Here is more from the Zagat Blog.

“It’s the creation of chef Michael Fox who, somehow, installed a Forno Bravo wood-burning pizza oven on the truck, which he uses to cook pizzas that he hand-tosses at parties and events – and hopefully, sometime in the future, at food truck get-togethers. In the meantime, he’s also offering cooking classes, where you and your friends can learn the fine art of pizza making. For info, go to www.foxpizzabus.com, e-mail info@foxpizzabus.com or call 818-305-4722.”
