Thanksgiving ideas - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Thanksgiving ideas

    I am doing Thanksgiving here at my house this year and wanted to pass along a great recipe that I have tried and would love to hear other ideas for sides or turkey tips (already threads). Mine is pretty simple but very tasty and is sweet potatoes and pineapples. You can adjust the ingredients as needed so I will be very vague on amounts.

    Boil one sweet potato per person (smaller is better and try and get them all the same size) until they are tender (~30 min)

    Let cool and peel off skin (hands are enough)
    Cut into 3/4" slices (20mm for everyone else in the world)

    Cover an oven safe pan (I use cast iron skillet) with the potatoes making a couple or 3 layers.

    Put pineapple chunks on top and then cut thin pats of butter and go over that. Then sprinkle with a generous amount of brown sugar and a bit of either pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, or whatever floats your boat.

    Put uncovered in a hot oven with enough flame to caramelize the sugar and char the pineapple a bit. Takes maybe 20 minutes.

    Thats it, enjoy!!!!
