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!

  • Interesting WFO in Prague

    My girlfriend and I discovered by accident this little pizzeria (can't remember the name--too much Becherovka?) in Prague. It wasn't very far from the city center. Obviously the throat of this oven doesn't conduct much heat. I find the flu/chimney configuration unusual. Most importantly, the pizza was fabulous, and it was nice to eat pizza made by people who aren't afraid of artichokes!

    I like the terra cotta roof tiles covering the dome: It's a nice look

      It almost looks one dimensional, as if the oven is painted on the wall. Is it?

        That's probably the effect of my cheap pocket digital camera and lens aberration. This is a small oven that protrudes into the room. The smoke stack makes a funny left bend. I guess the bottom of the oven doesn't have much insulation, because it appears that some charring of the wood pile occured, which blackened the bricks between the wood bin and the oven floor. Yikes!

            I like that a lot. It makes me wish I was having dinner there tonight.

                Yeah, I didn't notice that ticket printer at the time we were there, only after when looking through the pics. I guess the outer dome wall doesn't get all that hot, that printer is not melted, and all the other schnick-schnack next to it aren't charred!

                I was first in Prague about twenty-three years ago, and restaurant sanitation in general seemed pretty much non-existent. Now everyone has antibacterial handsoap next to the sink.

                Even so, the pizza was so amazing, and not the tasteless soft warm mass of cheese and "pepperoni" I get here. This restaurant helped me focus on why I knocked a hole in my house!

                  I believe we knock holes in our houses and back yards to match the holes in our wallets and our heads.... "BUT WE ARE HAVING FUN"
