Spring/Summer Ramekins Schedule - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Spring/Summer Ramekins Schedule

    Hello all,

    Here is the Ramekins Spring and Summer 2007 Cooking Class Schedule for Wood-Fired Cooking. There are some great classes, including Bruce Aidells (of Aidells sausage fame for those of you outside the U.S. west coast), plus a class from Judy Witts, our friend in Florence who took some of the photos on FB.com. Mary Karlin is a contributor to the new FB Wood-Fired Cooking e-Book and she oversee the wood-fired cooking program at Ramekins, and Benzinger is Benzinger.

    If you can find your way to Sonoma, the classes get great reviews.

    Any chance you will be making a guest appearance at any of these James?

    A buddy and I are considering attending a couple. Choice will probably come down to schedule over topic.

    BTW, I've been to Ramekins once, for a "cook your own lunch" corporate event. It was a lot of fun. We had a group of about 18 and were divided into small teams to prepare each course paired with a chef instructor. The instructors plated everything and served us. We brought the wine.

    It was a lot of fun and very educational.

      I'm not a good enough cook! I have done a couple of events there, and it's a fun place. There's something good about people who are really into food.

      We are going to be back in states some time in August, getting ready for the new school year, so I'm going to miss Judy in July. I'll let you know when our plans settle.

        I'll be attending the Pizza, Calzone & Focaccia class on June 2 with Mary Karlin. While I'm cooking my wife will be at the spa at our hotel. We are dining Friday evening at the General's Daughter in Sonoma.

        Does anyone have any dining recommendations and sights that we should take in?
