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!

  • Roasted Artichokes

    Anyone tried these in your oven?

    I bought some at the market and found a recipe. Basically a marinade of olive oil and garlic and then toss them on the open coals. Burn the outside and steam the insides....

    I'm doing about 8 so if you have any advice I'd be happy to know your experience. We've had them here in a restaruant so I'm trying them at home this weekend.

    Thanks, Jim

    Re: Roasted Artichokes

    These turned out great.

    We used 8 smaller artichokes....should have bought more. You want them to be closed on the top...that's what the old spanish lady in the market told me.

    Trim the stems, cut the top 1/4 or so off the top. They were then stuffed with a marinade of wine, garlic, olive oil and citris. Worked the mixture down well into the artichoke head. This will help in the steaming of the insides.

    I spread out the fire coals and just tossed them on top. Then proceeded to turn them periodically for about 1/2 hour (the recipe called for 1 hour but I think our coals were pretty hot and the artichokes a little smaller). They looked like a burnt offering to the gods but once you got inside they were great.

    You peel off the outer burnt leaves, eat the lower part of subsequent leaves between your teeth and then have the artichoke heart as the finale.

    delicious.....

      Our friends just sent us their picture of the artichokes before cooking and it's a better shot. The marinade is stuffed into the leaves and you can see the garlic on top.

      Next time we'll look for the bigger ones since the outer leaves are sacrificed to the fire gods.
