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!

  • I'm probably misspelling this but has anyone made skachetta?

    I'm looking for a recipe for skachetta. A friend of mine, who's parents are from Italy, told me about this dish. I can't remember all the ingredients but what I do remember is it had sausage, cabbage, potatoes backed in some kind of bread like a big calzone. It sounds perfect for a brick oven

    Thanks,
    Bruce.

    The closest thing that I can think of that you are referring to is a Tuscan flatbread that is called schiachiatta...it is not like a calzone though...kind of a rustic, oddly shaped pizza...sometimes topped with grapes "schiachiatta al uve" or really anything else...and almost always based with olive oil
    Hope this helps!

      Yep! I misspelled it.
      Thanks for the response. Yah, I would say they may have put their own twist on it, but that's what cooking's all about. Being creative!

        I finally got the recipe my friend was telling me about and tried it. Not to bad if you got some extra dough left over. Here' the pics. Recipe as emailed to me is:

        -1 small cauliflower
        -2 medium bunch of broccoli
        -1 big onion
        -1 can 16oz peeled tomato
        -4oz of red wine
        -2oz Romano cheese
        -2oz calamate olives
        -3 medium potatoes
        -2 16oz pizza dough

        Cut in small pieces cauliflower and broccoli, slice onion. In a large fry pan saute broccoli, cauliflower and onion. When almost cooked add wine, cheese and small pieces of olives without the pitt cut the olives in half. cook tomato into ragu sauce with 16 oz of ground pork meat. Boil potatoes and sliced 1/8 of an inch thick. In a 16x10 pan lay 1 pound of dough just like your making pizza. spread broccoli and cauliflower on top, lay the sliced potatoes at the end, put ragu sauce on top. Add salt and pepper of your taste. Cover with the other 16oz dough. Cook in oven for 30 minutes at 400 Until golden brown. Take out of oven cover with a table cloth for 30min. ENJOY!

          Sounds really good! Not at all like what we know of schiachiatta though...this is more of a stuffed focaccia...will have to try it I think
          Best
