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!

    Wow, very nice. One day I would like to tackle croissants. I tried them once, they didn't turn out so well.

    Are yours sourdough?

        Re: Croissants

        No these are not sourdough. This is just a basic dough. This comes from the book Advanced Bread and Pastry by Suas. He has other formulas some with preferments and I think a sourdough. I plan to just take them in order and give them all a try. This batch had 8# of dough and 2# of butter. So today I'm the croissant fairy giving them away to friends and family.

            Faith,

            Those croissants remind me of a little bakery I would frequent in Montmare, Paris, France everymorning. Nicely done.

              Nice! I like the inner structure of the croissants.

                Thanks everyone for the nice complements. This is by far my best set of croissants. There seams to be many different ways to do them with many different formulas. So once this set has been "dispatched" I'm looking forward to playing with some of the others that I have my eye on.

                Thanks again, Faith

                  Great product. Have you ever attempted pretzels ?

                    Re: Croissants

                    Pretzels have been on my to-do-list apparently for a long time. I just noticed I bought Sodium Hydroxide - Food NAOH-8-FOOD_GRADE for pretzels last April.

                    Where does the time go? Looks like Pretzels just got bumped up on that list.

                      Hey Faith,

                      Very nice! What temp did you bake those at?

                        390F ish. Perfect for working on the declining temp after sourdoughs.

                          Thanks. I forgot to ask if you put the directly on the hearth, or if you used a pan.

                            Aaron, No I used a sheet pan with parchment paper. When the croissants are fully proofed they kind of jiggle as if the were made of jello. So best to leave on the pan.
