New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

  • My favourite recipe...

    ...at the moment. It doesn't need a WFO, and I don't have a picture, but I'll post it anyway.

    Take ten raw egg yolks, rub them through a seive, add 200 g powdered sugar and the insides of one vanilla pod. Beat it all for a couple of minutes, then slowly add 350 g of Williams (like Kirsch but made with pears Schnapps - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - the German kind, needless to say). Allow it to rest for a day in the fridge, and then try to refrain from drinking it all at once.

    I have been told it will keep in the fridge for three weeks, but our's never does.



    On a completely unrelated topic... does anyone happen to have any good recipes using lots of egg wites they'd care to share?

    Divinity is a good use for egg whites!

    Mama's Divinity Recipe : Paula Deen : Food Network

    Make sure it isn't humid out when you are making it.
    It doesn't like to setup in high humidity.

    But it makes a good candy.

    My mother loves it!

      This is one of my favorite uses for egg whites. Komisbrot, an Austrian/German egg white based bread/cake. It's like a light version of a fruit cake, but really good. I make this after I make ice cream and have extra egg whites hanging out.

      The recipe uses the volume of egg whites you have to measure everything else against so I am sure it is easily scaled.

        The Meringues recipe was interchanged between us in old threads.
        Still a good option.
        I will try the Komisbrot asap.

        Bye

          Hmmm. Angel food cake will use up those egg whites - and might be good with your recipe (what's it called, anyway?) drizzled over it.

          Meringues rule! They are almost as good as divinity... almost.

              Wow, Archena!

              This was a magical "cuissine" lesson.
              Not even mention about me being proud of my meringues abilities.
              Great recipes.
              Whites, come to me!

                Well, I didn't want it going to your head. Besides, a good meringue is its own reward...

                  Hey, Frances, seriously, what do you call that dessert?

                    Re: My favourite recipe...

                    Sorry, havn't been here for a couple of days... thank you for all the ideas!

                    I'll have to try the Kumisbrot thing, sounds great! Soufle I thought of, but you usually need most of the egg yolks, too. And Meringues of course... once we've properly digested all the Christmas Biscuits.

                    The desert is a rather alcoholic drink, and is called Egg Liquor with Williams. A variation on your basic Egg Nogg I believe, only without the milk and therefore stronger. And nicer. It tastes sooo goood!

                    We were giving it away to friends and family this year in painted bottles, so now I've got a deepfreeze full of egg whites...

                        This pizza topping is my favourite and I think it's the closest thing to heaven you'll get.
                        Brush olive oil and garlic onto the base
                        add mozzarella,
                        red onion,
                        prawns dipped in lemon juice,
                        lemon zest,
                        feta
                        Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.
