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!

  • New Cooking Classes in Sonoma County

    We are very happy to announce the formation of a new wood-fired cooking school in Somona County, Northern California -- Forno Rustico.

    Lea Bergen is a well-known chef and wood-fired cooking expert, Forno Bravo oven owner, and FFB (Friend of Forno Bravo), and we have been talking with her for some time about starting a new wood-fired cooking school with an emphasis on small classes, personal attention, and the highest levels of cooking. And we are thrilled to say that her new venture Forno Rustico, has taken off.

    Forno Rustico offers individual lessons and lessons for small groups, from 2-3 people and 4-8 people (the largest size) -- with an emphasis on personalized, individual attention. The content of each class is set up between Lea and the individuals, and times are set on a per class basis.

    We will be posting more information on FB.com, and you can download their brochure here:

    Lea has the perfect wood-fired cooking background, having been:

    Director of De'Medici Cooking School in Chianti, Italy
    Culinary Director of Webvan
    VP Program Development California Culinary Academy
    GM of Thomas Fogarty Winery
    Chef at Greens Restaurant (San Francisco)
    Line cook at Chez Panisse (Berkeley)
    Founding chef Opera House Cafe (Petaluma)

    You can reach Forno Rustico at 707 321-6917.

    Re: New Cooking Classes in Sonoma County

    A little late for me James - 2 weeks from today I am in Sonoma, but in a different class. I was hoping for 100% WFO cooking but it sounds like I will get a mix. But, with the allure of the wine country, I am sure there will be other opportunities.

    All said, sounds like a great offering!
