Best place to buy Lames - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Best place to buy Lames

    I'm getting a little frustrated using my Opinel knife to slash my bread. I think it's just a little too heavy and it really pulls the bread when I make the cut.

    So I guess I am in the market for a real French Lame.

    Ahybody know where to get them?

    Had the same type problem you did until I got hold of the real thing. There are several sources: Kingarthurflour.com has an online catalogue that offers them, but the blades are fixed in a plastic handle, so really only one side is usable unless you're ambidextrous. The San Francisco Baking Institute (sfbi.com) carries a really nifty and cheap (about $6) bent metal handle that uses standard safety razor blades you install yourself. That's what I'm using now. SFBI is the best source for bannetons, too. If you want to get more info than you really need, go to scaritech.com. It's a French company that makes nothing else but lames. How French is that?

      Thanks for the lead

      Thanks. I called the SF Baking Institute and ordered my lame, along with two linen lined bannetons. Proceeds go to a scholarship fund. Now I can't wait for them to show up.

      Nice folks at sfbi.com.
