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!

  • Presidential WFO menu

    SO excited (and sad) for tonights party. Our good friend is moving to Baltimore MD she has a new job as the President of an all girls school. She also has a passion for US Presidents! So Chef Phil and I are giving her a going away party "Dinner Impossible" style.

    She gave us a list of her top ten US Presidents we had to create a menu based on the favorite foods of some of those men. She has no idea as to why she had to provide the list...this is gonna be fun. Will post photos, but here is the menu

    John Adams - French Cheese Board
    Harry Truman - Aspargus and Tomato salad
    FDR - Hot Dogs
    Teddy Roosevelt - Bison Sliders
    Abraham Lincoln - Corn bread with bacon
    JFK - Boston Baked Beans
    George Washingtonm- Cherry pie

    She HATE George W Bush...I'm a fan so we are also having Pretzles

    Now for one that needs a lot of explaining

    James Garfield - Squirrel Stew Garfield was shot while president but did not die right away he was ill for 2 months and was not getting better and was not eating. His FAVORTIE food was Squirrel stew and his Dr's thought if he was served the Squirrel soup/stew he may eat it and recover. So special permission was granted to shoot squirrels on the White House property. He never did recover. We are not serving squirrel but we are making a cornish game hen stew and calling it squirrel stew....this should be interesting!!

    Wish us luck!

      We are using to oven for quite a few things...we also have a BBQ pit attatched to the WFO so that will be used to grill the asparagus, bison sliders and hot dogs. The WFO will be used for the corn and bacon bread, cherry pie, squirrel (cornish hen) stew; due to time we started the baked beans in the crock pot but will finish in the oven..ahh just tought of something else I'm going to bake some Brie in puff pastry in the oven, better go get the puff pastry dough at the store! The more stuff that comes out of that oven the better!! LOL!! Everything tastes better with wood!!
