Savory Spice shop-Austin, TX - 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!

    All kinds of good spices, dirt cheap. Today I got:

    1oz of habanero powder.
    1/2oz of Aleppo pepper flakes.
    1oz of smoked Spanish hot paprika powder.
    1/2oz of mild green New Mexico green chili powder.
    2oz of crushed brown mustard seeds.
    2oz of tomato powder
    2oz of bleu cheese powder
    5oz of Himalayan pink sea salt
    1oz of Cantanzaro mix (garlic, lemon peel, majora, thyme, rosemary and oregano) for pizza sauce.

    (basically 9 normal spice-bottle quantities)

    For 28 bucks.

    I have been looking for the powdered habanero for a couple of months locally, and met the owner at a party Saturday night. She is a neighbor, in fact.

    It is nice nice little shop on West 6th, visit if you can, and they are online if you can't.

    5oz of Himalayan pink sea salt
    Aren't the Himalayas awfully far in distance and in elevation from the sea?

      They are now, but they haven't always been.

        Well yes, all salt is sea salt. It's just a matter of how long ago the salt was in seawater - days, millennia, epochs, or eons. The term is generally used today to indicate the salt was recently (maybe months or a few years?) made from seawater.

        I haven't tasted a lot of different sea salts but the ones I have tried all tasted like - well, salt. I don't seem to be able to discern the finer points of flavor between various oceans. Maybe I've eaten hot chilies for so long that my taste buds are burned out!

          They harvest and sell pink salt here from an inland lake, most of Oz is saline.

          Anyway, they sell the pink salt at about 30 times the price of normal salt.
