FB Class at Ramekins a big hit - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • FB Class at Ramekins a big hit

    One of the wood-fired cooking classes took place at Ramekins last night, and by all accounts was a big success. I wasn't there, but someone else from Forno Bravo attended -- and Mary Karlin did a great job. The class had been sold out for a while, and there were 20 people attending, including a couple from Minnesota and another from Chicago who flew out to California just to attend the class. I posted the class description earlier and everyone enjoyed moving from pizza to the other dishes.

    There are 20 spots for a follow up class in the Spring, and 7 are already booked. If you are interested, you should sign up early.

        Thanks a bunch!

        It sounds great!

        By the way, any progress with your woodfired DVD?

          We've started working on the DVD. I have fired up the video editing software, and have set up all the sections, chapters, fade-in/out, etc. Now all I need is the actual video.

          We have an American friend taking a sabbatical in Florence, who just ordered an oven from our producer for his house, and I am going to be installing a Casa oven at our rental house -- so we have two ovens to work with.

          We've even found the Caputo distributor, and have ordered two of the 55lb bags of Pizzeria flour.

          More to come on that, but we are making progress.

          Again, any recommendations for the DVD is appreciated.
