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!

  • Proud parent moment

    Hey guys,

    Warning, warning. Proud parent alert.

    Our oldest daughter was accept to MIT this week and she has committed to attend. She's thrilled -- it was her first choice. Plus, I now have a great excuse to run the Boston marathon and drop in for visit for the next four years. Getting into college is so hard these days, we're really happy.

    That is awesome James - incredible school. Has she chosen a major yet? (not that it matters, just having those letters on a diploma speaks volumes)

    If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

        Hey Les,

        Environmental engineering, at least for now. I'm looking forward to meeting the materials engineering department -- those guys will know a few things about insulation and high temperature materials. haha.

        She is also going to run track.

          Awesome opportunity! Speaks to good parenting James.

          I found an interesting article about MIT scientists this week: here. Not too distant from your daughter's intersts.

          Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
          An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

          I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

            Congratulations James,
            I hope that your families sucessess bring you as much pride and pleasure as my 3 children have bought us.
            All have professional positions of responsibility and 2 have university degrees. My son is also doing a second degree. All have 2 children and we couldn't be happier with their partners, professions and families.
            The fact that you might get materials information to benefit FB is a mere off spin but your daughter sounds like she is about to follow in similar shoes to you.
            You have good reason to be proud and thank you for sharing your pride.

              Condrats James,
              You should be proud. And the
              Boston Marathon as a bonus! How cool!
