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!

  • Ciabatta or baguettes first?

    Hey Bakers,

    Today I am baking Ciabatta and Baguettes (and some rye later!)

    What needs hotter temps, which should go in the oven first? Ciabatta or Baguettes?

    Thanks!

    Baguettes!!! Definitely the baguettes! At 550 hearth temp they should be done in 15 to 20 min at most. The ciabatta should be a softer and lighter bake.

      Dutch,


      Agreed. Baguette definitely likes the hotter temp, and Ciabatta should have a lower, slower bake. Got into a bit of trouble the other day with some Baguette dough that was really, really ready, but the hearth was at 675 F. No choice; had to go for it. Baked perfectly in four minutes flat; no charring. Amazing.

        Four minute baguettes! Unbelievable. That needs a patent I think. How high a hydration dough was that to resist that hot a hearth.
        I'm not worthy, I don't have the guts to get them in at that kind of temp. You must have just got the oven steamed and then had to vent it! Most places don't make pizzas that fast!
