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!

    Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment
    community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection
    and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

    Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities
    turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry
    Jack, The California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the hostess Twinkies and
    Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

    Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a
    man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in
    show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was
    not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on
    half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times he is still
    was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for
    millions.

    Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough
    and Jane Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by
    his elderly father, Pop Tart.

    The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

    Un amico degli amici.

    I'm shocked; What a shame. A good life, cut short... right in it's prime. He had risen to the pinnacle of his profession and was highly respected by many. But why do you think Duncan Hines didn't make an appearance to pay respects?
