Happy Pi Day! - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Happy Pi Day!

    I trust everyone has pizza on the menu for today. I'm firing up the oven at 1:59.

    Geeze Les. You make my brain hurt. I'm scratchin' the hair out of my head thinking about the 1:59 firing. Apparently my synapses are not firing on all cylinders.

    I'm hoping that your plans include making 22 pizzas today for 7 people, and that you each get exactly the same amount of pizza. EnJoY!

    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

      George - it's not that difficult - Pi = 314159xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

      Any more granularity than a minute would have been BS. Cut back on the size of the party that was planned - after today though, I think I can pull it off. I let the hearth drop to around 750 degrees. Cooking two pizza's at once at that temp was a piece of cake. HUGE success!

        Hey, now there's a coincidence!

        I didn't know it was Pi day... But we had the first day of Spring yesterday and officially started this year's pizza season with a pizza party for seven people (i.e. family plus in-laws ). Outside, in the evening, with lots of different toppings and everybody making their own pizza. I'd forgotten how much fun that is!

        I'll have to tell them we were actually celebrating Pi day.
