EU Inflation - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

    -- although Spain and Italy have both suffered from inflation....

    James, you said it!!

    I've been going through a regular price shock as I shop and travel in Spain and I'm guessing much of the EU is the same. It must be fun for you bringing products back to the states.

    Exchange rate used to be 90 cents to the Euro, now it's $1.30 to the Euro. That's almost a 50 % increase in costs due to just the exchange rate.

    I'd suggest that since the Euro came in here that prices have doubled in about 5 years on the Euro implementation and inflation. They say real estate is up 8% annually and more along the coasts.

    The day the Euro came into existence a 100 pesetas cup of coffee was suddenly a Euro and at that time I think it was 160 pesetas or so to the euro. Such is progress. I see signs changed regularly....yesterday a tag on a piece of furnature was changed from 250 to 350. A sign for the Menu del Dia changed from 10 Euros to 12 Euros....

    So, anyone who has travelled Europe in the past and will come back, just be prepared for increased prices on just about everything.

    Thanks George....
