First Hearth Bread in My Primavera 70 - 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!

  • First Hearth Bread in My Primavera 70

    This was my first attempt at making bread in my Forno Bravo 70. It was a lot easier then I was led to believe.

      Good start! The first loaves are always the most tentative, but after a while you won't even think about it Try reading up on cold rising in a fridge over night. Good for "sourdoughs", but also it helps eliminate the tricky coordinating between oven temps and rising times. It is all I do anymore. When the oven is ready, I just pop the cold loaves in (they also slash better with cold dough). Some have debated whether cold dough will spring as well as fresh dough, and I was a doubter for a while, but now think there is little difference. there is only 20-30 degrees difference anyway and it goes into a 500* oven! The only problem is clearing out room in the fridge

      In any case, have fun.
