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 with wild garlic and salmon

    There happened to be some wild garlic pesto in the fridge (made with the leaves of this plant Ramsons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) so I spread it on a pizza base and added smoked salmon, sour cream, onion rings and parmesan...


    No picture because it disapeared so fast, but it was a really pretty bright green pink and white colour.


    I think I've got a new favourite pizza!

    That's quite a combination! But it sounds great. I'm curious how the sour cream behaved in the heat -- did it just melt into the dough?

      Yep, it melted. Little puddles of liquid calories all over the pizza ... I just thought the taste would work better than mozzarella.

        Sounds like a real winner, Frances! I have occasionally used sour cream also but probably not so well. Nice thought!

          Frances,
          I'm going to give this a try. Have you made any changes or improvements it?
          Cheers,

            No... and I'll have to wait until those wild garlic plants start growing next Springtime before I can make this one again.

            Maybe I should give it a go with regular Basil pesto instead? For the record, here's the recipe I used:

            100 g Wild Garlic leaves
            100 g Hazlenuts
            100 g Olive oil
            50 g Parmesan
            1 clove of Garlic
            Salt and peper

            Put it all in the blender and, erm, blend. I used hazlenuts bcause I didn't have any pine kernels, and I read somewhere you could also use walnuts or almonds. I really liked the way hazlenuts and garlic taste together though.

              Bravo Frances!

              That pesto sounds so good it would make cardboard gourmet! )

              On real food it would be spectacular! Sounds real versatile too!

                Thanks for the recipe Frances. I will be on the lookout for the wild garlic.
                I will post the results when we have tried it.

                Here is one of our favorite pizza's which I haven't posted yet, and have not see the on the blog. We will serve this one as an appetizer.

                On your freshly rolled out dough brush on a very light coat of white truffle olive oil. Then put on a layer grated fontina cheese. Dump on a few bits of chopped kalamata olives. Cook this in the oven until the crust is perfectly golden. The fontina cheese has a much higher burn temp then mozzarella and will just boil on the pizza as it cooks. When done sprinkle on some coarse ground salt as the cheese sets for a few minutes. Cut and enjoy.

                Cheers,
