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!

  • WFO at your table?

    An interesting twist on taking the soapstone out of the oven and onto your table. Scroll down past the cars and stuff...

    The little soapstones, roughly four inches square, look like unpolished granite and cost the restaurant 300 euros apiece.

      I've been to one of Adelaide's up market hotels where they bought out a similar stone where you sliced up your chicken or steak and cooked it at your table.
      A novel idea but took ages to get through your meal.
      You might as well stay at home and cook your meal as go out to a restaurant and still having to cook your selection.

          Sorry, but no thanks! As far as I'm concerned, that's a total rip off!
          It's the same as self service gas. 'We'll let the customer do all the work and still take their money! And the cost will stay right up there with a full service
          business!'
          The place should be called "highway robbery steak house!"

              I have been toying with the idea of making a soapstone 'warming plate' that can be left on the dinner table to go under a soup pot, rolls, main dish, whatever. Since it gives up heat slowly, I figure the only variable is how hot to start with so it doesn't overcook what's sitting on it.

              How to insulate it so it doesn't burn the table?

                  You could make mini mini pizza ovens to sit on the table, heats and insulates....
