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!

    Re: Our Farmer's market

    Dutch, you are killing me. You don't need a live in fire tender do you? You can pay me with bread, rolls, bagels, burnt crumbs.
    I have no neighborhood bakery, no farmers market (the local flea market just doesn't cut it), and no baking skills (due to a lack of patience), so I'm pretty much screwed when it comes to fine baked goods.

    I've gotta convince my wife to bake more than cake......you have the real deal there.
    thanks for sharing.

      Dutch, that looks great. We have nothing near that caliber in my town. I'd certainly be a regular customer. Thanks for posting.

        Amazing!

        Is all of that from the WFO? I know that is a lot of work! Looks fantastic!

          Thanks everyone! Our patrons appreciate it and it is nice to hear your kind comments! We bake our brains out all day Friday late into the night...about 90% is WFO baked...some weeks it is 100%...cinnamon rolls and pecan sticky seem to like a regular convection oven better...and once in a while the WFO has enough heat to do the bagels.
          Thanks again!

            Dutch,

            I've been there. All that variety, all the numbers, make me very tired all of a sudden. Well done; it all looks great. Hope your customers have some inkling of how much effort is involved. Keep it up.

                Thanks again! It is so very nice to have such nice comrades...Jim...boy did you hit that nail on the head...learning to play golf well may have been easier...and as far as tiring...we just kind of get home in the early afternoon on Saturdays and just CRASH!...it is very satisfying for us though to bring this type of product to our area...and our customers do appreciate it and the newer ones are learning to...and it has been quite an evolution...this is our 3rd market season and we recently spoke of the first time we opened our booth...brought 30 loaves of bread(thought that was a lot), sold out in about 40 minutes...yesterday we brought about 105 loaves plus the cinnamon rolls and bagels...how we got there who knows?
                All the best!

                Oh! Had something I wanted to share earlier but it constantly slipped my mind. A couple of weeks ago we had a customer at market come to the booth and pick out a ciabatta. He had a British accent which is not uncommon because Oxford has the Univ. of Mississippi. He also grabbed a sample of our Peasant loaf(a nice, crusty, tangy loaf made with about 40% rye) and walked away. Seconds later he came back and quite excitedly asked, "What kind of oven are these breads baked in!" When I said a brick oven heated with wood fire he went on to say that he was the son of a British baker...4th generation...he broke the cycle though...he said it brought back such memories...very satisfying!
