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!

  • Classic flat bread or cracker bread recipe

    I have been looking for a classic recipe for cracker bread. I have looked everywhere. I usually get a flat bread which rises to about 1/2" thick. I want crunchy wafer thin craker bread. Thanks!

    There is a great one in Peter Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice. If you don't have it, we can list the recipe here.

      I do Reinhart's lavash recipe regularly. And his book Bread Baker's Apprentice is highly recommended. But if you Google flatbread you can find other good recipes such as this one.

      Good luck! Crackers and flatbread are fun!

        There's also a good one in Baking With Julia. It's always a hit at parties when we make them.

          Try Peter Reinhart's recipe for peppery cracker bread in Crust & Crumb, page 136 ff.

          Makes lovely strips of crackers - and the dough can also be used for pizza!

          Cheers,

            Sounds as if you want Carta di Musica: Literally "sheet music". This cracker/bread is supposed to be so thin you can read through it! Delicious and crunchy; if you add some seeds to the dough, it does actually look like old parchment paper music sheets! The King Arthur Flour Bread Book has an excellent recipe that I have made many times...
