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!

    Has anyone ever made a Ponsette? Its a Italian stuffed veal breast. I remember my Grandmother making this a long time ago. Can;t help thinking that it would be good on a WFO...Living in the rural south, I don't think that I could even find one at a market, or veal in general...Pork is king here...

    I have not done a Ponsette but I have done veal breast several times. Ask the meat guy in your biggest grocery. Mine sometimes has one or two in back. Other times they have to order it. But they can get it. So... give it a try! Good Luck!

        Ponsette is another of those peasant meals like pasta fagioli or escarole. Make something good for little money.....Years ago, the breast was mostly bones and fat,it was cheap, it is all about the stuffing. The stuffing, as I remember, was a bread stuffing. Italian bread,garlic, oinions, celery, couple eggs, thyme, maybe some red pepper flakes and some stock to wet it with. I would assume you would cook it slow and low to extract all the flavor from the bones and fat,300 ish.covered, then un covered...Gramma has been gone for 20 years and she was 90 when she went...As with most old timers , it was always a pinch of this and a hand full of that...."mangiare il figlio e venunto bello" Aegis, seeing that you are from CT. I would guess that there are a lot of Italians...Go to a Italian store and ask....I live in "Elvis" country...there is no ethnenticiety..sp? No Little Italy no China town No Greek town... I am from Chicago... Love it here but miss the food...Which is what drove me to build a WFO in the first place...
