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!

  • Adelaide South Australia - Gagannis Bros

    This place is a very Greek/Italian bulk food warehouse come supermarket name Gagganis Brothers,
    As you can imagine, everything is there and in bulk. It is displayed on racking with palettes everywhere and very cheap pricing. They have bulk flours, tomatoes, pastes, toppings, spices, smallgoods, and everything you could ever need.
    They also have a smallgoods a specialty area, huge selection of cheeses, heaps of pastes and sauces, too many oils to mention, coffee section and even a hardware section with everything imaginable for the kitchen and cooking.
    They also have huge barbeques, roasters, wine presses, barells, bottles and everything needed for wine making.
    Well worth a visit but you will need a utility to get everything home but a great place to visit.

      Their Gaganis branded special white flour is excellent for pizzas. It's 9% protein which works well for me, and a really good balance of extensibility and elasticity. I've never handled dough like it - you can pretty much windowpane the whole dough ball if you want! And only $12 or so for 10kg.

        Tim,
        I think you paid a litle too much. A couple of weeks ago I got mine from one of the palettes spread around the store for $10:20. I couldn't work out why one bag had a large printed 44 on it but I see they had 45 palettes of flour.
        They sure have some nice goodies in there.
        Have you had a good look through the front of the shop with all the pans, glassware, pizza accessories, knives etc yet?
        I usually use that flour but I also have 10kg of their pizza flour and I got a 10kg bag of their superior bread flour to try.
        They have too many for this amateur to use and 10kg is not always easy to store and I am not good enough yet to use it quickly.

          Yep, they have some great stuff! I'm eying off a pair of those 50cm tongs in the spit section... think I'll pick them up next visit.
