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!

  • James' Report From Boston: Christopher Reeve Foundation Luncheon

    This photo is from the Christopher Reeve Foundation luncheon in Boston. John Carson is on the left. He was a competitive Ironman tri-athelete, who was hit by a car when training on his bike a couple of years ago. The accident left him paralyzed and unable to walk. No one knew if he would ever walk again.

    Working through the Reeve Foundation, he has thrown himself into cutting-edge physiotherapy, and he can not only walk, but he has completed a post-accident Ironman (that is a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and full 26.2-mile marathon completed in less than 17 hours) ... and he raced the Boston marathon on Monday.

    This is remarkable, considering he doesn't have feeling below his upper thighs. He has learned how to balance, walk and run by controlling his legs using cues from his thigh muscles. If he isn't looking at his feet, he doesn't even know they are there.

    John is an incredibly well-spoken and inspiration man. I couldn't find any hint of anger or regret in how he describes what has happened to him, or how it has changed his life. He's full of humor, energy and most of all, an amazingly positive attitude. (Don't you love his T-shirt!)

    It is moments like this that make me so happy that Forno Bravo, and I on a more personal level, are involved with the Christopher Reeve Foundation.
