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!

    All,

    Having cut my writing teeth on a manual Smith Corona portable, couriers, then the wonders of the fax during the Dark Ages, the internet never ceases to amaze me because of its immediacy and range.

    This weekend, I'm holding another bread workshop that will include a participant from New Zealand. In July, I'll be holding a bagel workshop that includes a member from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. Yikes!

    It doesn't take long to figure out that just a few short years ago, such arrangements would have been next to impossible to make, without tons of time and money spent on paper advertising, phone calls, letters, etc., etc.

    And, of course, it's hard to tell what the next generation will bring. Beam me up, Scotty.

      yep, second that one.....The web/email is an amazing resource

      Someone mentioned this once (I'm sure he heard it from someone else).
      100years ago when people dreamed of an idea/concept it might have taken 50 years until it became a reality (or close to it).
      50 years ago it might have taken 10years before it came about to being made.
      but today the gap between the concept of something and its actual creation - is almost nothing.

      Its funny how we can have a thought/idea for something and then you jump on the web for a look and it already exists.

      oopppsss I'm getting too deep
