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!

  • Pizza, pizza, pizza.

    We had some friends over for another Pizzafest and as usual everyone made thier own and had a ball doing so.
    The weather was just brilliant with temps around 30c for the entire evening, which I must admit was a tad too hot for me standing in front of the oven for ages cooking the pizza.

    I'm envious of your weather. At least we are headed toward summer on this side of the orb. Looks like a good time.

        We let the guests build them on 10" pans and they are cooked on the pans, it seems less messy that way.
        Dave did his pizza on a 14" tray and it was taken off after a while and put on the floor to crisp.

          Re: Pizza, pizza, pizza.

          yeh..i actually like it done straight on the floor, seems to add a earthy feel to it, but if you have other people over, they look at you as if your from the long lost tribe of Amazonians that still cook naked (and no....i aint tryin that.......or will i )

          The missus is insistant on buying some cast iron plates that she wants to cook on, atleast they will retain the heat in cast iron,(maybe too much)

          Oh yeh, theres a question, will sandstone cope with the heat from a pan??

            For pizza?
            I bought some spun pans off ebay, dont buy pressed ones they need to be spun as they have a convex base and are easy to spin in the oven to turn the pizza.
            Pressed pans are flat and wont spin.

            Not sure on that one.
            Having done a lot of gemmology in a previous hobby Id say it was good as of the way sandstone was formed, but get some other advise first.

                I know he had blue vein cheese, not sure what else apart from the obvious.
