Renton Jan 2009 - 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!

  • Renton Jan 2009

    So the company is sending me to Renton for a few days. Unfortunately they are not providing local transportation. Humm I say to myself who do we know in Wash.

    JanPrimus, at least an hour away bummer he has a really nice oven.

    Wiley - he has a monster oven that is coming along nicely not quite readily accessable from Renton.

    How about a trip south GJBingham - nope too far too.

    Bummer we need more folks in the Seattle area to build ovens!

    You'ld be welcome to come visit. Renton is about an hour and one half away and once you cross the Tacoma Narrows Bridge the congestion drops off and it is quite nice country. We live on a small island (6 miles by 1 mile with a wasp waist of 1/4 mile, 1000 people, one store, no gas station nicely rural) We are served by bridge (forget the ferries in the summer months!).
    If you want to consider a rental car give us a heads up as to dates and we can see if our schedules coincide.

      Jengineer - I haven't been on the forum (working my regular job, a year into a Master's and trying to still be a husband and father) for a while but I just saw your post. I'm probably the closest - Puyallup is about 20-60 minutes south of Renton (depending on traffic on SR167 ). When will you be out this way?

          Hey, I'm still on school break that week. I usually have Tuesdays off (the 6th). My oven is working, although as yet not completely finished. It's not a monster and it may not even be nice, but it may have one of the more interesting stories. My avatar shows the beginnings of it's journey from my old house to it's new location (squeezed between my old house and my neighbor's). It wasn't altogether easy, and I think part of the reason I dropped away from posting here was the pain of salvaging and refinishing. I can offer beer and pizza on 1/6/09 if you think you can make it.
