Mary G's Annual Bash 2008 - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Mary G's Annual Bash 2008

    I heard it on the grapevine - you know the ride between LA to Bakersfield

    CanuckJim will be holding his annual open house over Memorial Day weekend. It is a weekend that the Canadians do not celebrate, instead they celebrate the weekend before with Victoria Day. Last year I lamented that it would be fun to have fresh pizza and day old bread to mix things up. Luckily Jim was not holding an ax a lame or a bread knife as I made this remark. The last two years Jim has been quite busy during the open house as he preps and cooks various breads and there is only so much help he can stand from his neophyte bread apprentices. Rumour has it that he will indeed blaspheme his bread oven and allow it to be used for pizza cooking. Here is the unfortunate part, we are in the middle of a foreign adoption and will not be able to make the trek this year! If any of you blokes from South California are going to go please drop me a line. I have found it to be a nice trip to fly in and out of Buffalo and then drive over to Toronto. It adds a day to the drive but gives you an excuse to see the falls.

    Real geeks skip the falls and go to see the Welland Canal.

      DMUN, I feel young and stupid for this. I see that picture and I think of water balloons at the ferry passing through the canal. Oh, those juvenile days.
      An excellent pizza is shared with the ones you love!

        Right again. The annual Mary G's Bread Bash will be held on Saturday, May 24th, and this year's theme is Italian. I'm hoping to draft a few people to help with the prep and cooking so I actually have time to talk to people this year. I've got a few volunteers, but more would certainly be welcome. Any Forum members, from near or far, are certainly welcome to attend. I do need an RSVP, though, so I know how much dough to put in the cooler.

        Your CA contingent will certainly be missed, but there's always next year.

            Thanks for the invite. I would love to come and be happy to volunteer to help, unfortunately...... life gets in the way. Hopefully sooner than later. The affair sounds like a blast. Maybe the Prime Minister will show.
