So.... How's your Easter? - 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!

  • So.... How's your Easter?

    We're pretty quiet here. Too many idiots on the road around the Full Moon.
    Just had the odd bird over.
    Very pheasant actually.No Chicken Surprise, or Peeking Duck.
    Totally civilised this year. Makes a nice change.
    Thank you Lord, and eat mammals you mongrels.

    need to get the oven going and do a mass of hot cross buns.
    My 2 grandchildren are a little too young, (3 and 8 months), but plan on making a big deal out of mine next year with chillie "hot' crosses on their buns.
    Have a safe and enjoyable easter.

    PS. just got back from a rush trip up to Mypolonga to fix the boat so that the kids can enjoy their easter break skiing.

        Mypolonga: on the Murray?
        So you have water, obviously. We hear so many conflicting stories up here re the Murray. Shore did see a lot of hectares of big old Redgums, dead as maggots. Depressing enough for a visitor, let alone you mob that live there.
        Anyway, chin up, and great skiing eh.

          Easter is just great Jeff!

          even if I'm more spiritual than religious.

            Easter was good - pizza for 14 last night and a great dessert.

            Opened a double magnum of Penfolds CabSav - no-one wanted to help finish it off - but I gave it a good go...

            Finally got the dough, temp and timing right - pizza was excellent for the first time.

            AND the crack didn't open any further, so it's more cosmetic and any big issue.

            Have a happy Easter - we are off the Nonna's house for home made pasta tonight...

              Hope the big bunny left you lots of pretty colored eggs today. I'm awaiting his (?) visit. How the hell does the Easter Bunny travel around the world anyway? Hopping seems a bit slow.

                A friend of my dad's from Arkansas used to tell a story about his father taking a peacock in trade for some work he did. At Easter this man's wife went about hiding colored Easter eggs for the children to hunt. Anyway, seems the rooster found the eggs before the kids, and went about kicking the CRAP out of that peacock. Jarvis said the peacock was good eatin' tho. He also told a story "'bout the dog cold nosin' his dad" but, I'll save that for a future post!
