Paella - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Paella

    We made Paella the other night. I started it on the range top and finished it in the pizza oven. Follow your favorite Paella recipe.
    I had the rice mixture about 70% done. Then put it in the oven for about 10 minutes I then added the mussels and clams for 5 more minutes and finally the shrimp and Rock Fish for the last 5 minutes. The rice was perfect, a little crunchy on the top and bottom.
    I got the Saffron at Trader Joe's It is the strands that come in a little jar. I just added warm water to the jar and let sit for about 5 minute before adding it to the rice mixture.

    That looks amazing! I want to try cooking something different in my oven but we are not ready to break away from the pizza.

              Here's a photo of Antonio Laudisio and his artfully crafted paella cooked exclusively in his FB Primavera oven at the 2010 FB Expo. Antonio drew large crowds while he was cooking, not only for his culinary expertise, but also for his real-life stories, jokes and anecdotes. Quite the the character, Antonio was worth the price of admission.
