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!

  • Forno Rustico - outdoor cooking classes

    I traveled parts of California this past May and had the pleasure of taking a 3 hour course with Lea Bergen of Forno Rustico (Forno Rustico - Fire. Inspire. Ignite. - Sonoma & Napa) at her beautiful home and kitchen studio in Sonoma.

    Lea has a wealth of knowledge with the forno a legna and is a very patient and dedicated instructor; she took the time to answer my many questions about the wood-burning oven and many other culinary inquiries--which included a discussion on salt and followed by a salt taste test.

    I mentioned to Lea that I wanted to go beyond pizza and learn techniques on how to prepare appetizers and meats in the forno. She did not disappoint. She prepared a menu that took me to many parts of the world - Toscana, Morroco, and Calabria (just to keep it real for me).

    I would highly recommend taking a course with Lea and when I am back in California, I would not hesitate spending another few hours to learn more from this well-travelled and experienced Chef.

    Regards,
    Rossano
