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!

  • Great Taste Treats

    I attended a wine and food show on Friday and got to sample a wonderful array of lovely taste treats - no wood fired pizza, however, two things stood out ...

    First, for anyone in Ontario (sorry everyone else), especially the central or Toronto area, there's a great new Artisan cheese operation called Fifth Town that recently started up in Prince Edward county (Picton).
    Their blue chevre is really good, as were the others I sampled.

    Second is the ice ciders coming out of Quebec - every bit as good as ice wine, if not even better, and far less expensive!
    I tried the two biggest sellers - Pinnacle, very good and sold world-wide, and Neige, even better in my opinion and soon to have a wider distribution into other countries. If you stumble upon either of these where you are, give them a try!

    Ironically, there was a prominent article about ice cider in this Saturday's Montreal Gazette - worth a read - here's the link:

    Ice cider rules

    It describes the taste and the process better than I can.
