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!

  • Giusto's flour

    I've been using King Arthur flour for bread and Caputo for pizza and focaccia. We can get their white whole wheat and regular whole wheat from Trader Joe's. The while whole wheat is pretty cool because you can blend it into "white bread" to get a more healthy bread and you can blend it into regular whole wheat to lighten the loaf.

    That said, I noticed that many commercial microbakeries around here use Giustos (S. San Francisco).

    Does anyone have a source for getting Giusto's in smaller bags from home baking? I would be interested in trying it out.

    Giustos on line

    If found Giustos flour on line, and purchased five bags. White bread, white bread with high gluten and whole wheat bread with high gluten. It came yesterday, so I am looking forward to giving it a try. I will let you know how it goes.

    I have been mixing half Caputo 00 with King Arthur white whole wheat for my baguettes and other hearth loaves, and now I'm going to try mixes of the two white flours, and maybe add some whole wheat white for the health of it.

    More baking to come.

        Hey Marc,

        That's a great idea -- thanks for the reminder. It's wonderful flour, and they sell over the Internet. We've been traveling, so I haven't ordered for a while -- but I will start again today. I have enjoyed the high gluten bread flour and the whole wheat flour for bread making. I've never tried the finer ground pastry flour; of course I'm hooked on Caputo for pizza and focaccia. :-)

        If we both order a supply, let's see how it goes.
