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 for for 11

    This is 24-hour notice for what we cooked last night. We have two sets of neighbors, plus kids (do you still call high school girls kids?), so I am making pizza for 11.

    I'm making 3 batches of 1kg Caputo recipes (that's three blue bags), with each one making 6 dough balls. That is 1,000 g flour, 625 g water, salt and yeast, giving me 275 g dough balls. Just right.

    18 dough balls will do one nice pizza per person, plus dessert pizzas. I'm also going to try making tarts with puff pastry.

    We have nutella, creme fraiche, and fresh berries.

    I might try Peter's dessert recipe with a thick pizza base, mascarpone, pine nuts, powdered sugar, and fresh berries.

      A quick note, and more later. Everything was a lot of fun. The pizzas were excellent, the oven held it's heat and our dinner guests were great. It's late and all it well. :-)

      I made 250gr dough balls, and next time I am going for 280gr. The pizzas could use a little more muscle.

      That, and the oven was too hot for puff pastry for dessert. More to come on that.

        Its probably just right for the pastry this morning. Did you use the fireplace too? I't be a cool pic of both the oven and the fireplace burning at night!

          Morning George,

          We didn't light the fireplace. Should have done that - we did buy a propane space heater; which is going to get a lot of use. It's cold here. Still, it was a beautiful evening, we watched the sun set from our side porch (above the oven) and the wind and fog didn't kick up -- I think this augers well for the future. The ancient Romans believes in signs, so I think this was a good sign.

          Here is a photo of one of the kid's pizzas. Check out that blister. :-)

            Gorgeous mozzarella on that pizza. Looks wonderful. I did pepperoni with Monterey Jack instead of Mozzarella this weekend. It was wonderful!

            I love those propane space heaters that they use in outdoor restaraunts. So warm and cozy right at your table! If I was entertaining with any frequency, I would do the same. For now, I just yell at the kids to put on sweaters.
