Stand built, now for the hearth... - 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!

    Hello there!

    Bit of an autumn day here today, not your usual 31 degrees C. Mortared the last 6 blocks in place for the stand - the shade and various angled lines make the work appear more helter-skelter than it is :-) A slight shower threatens, so I put up my defences to protect the fresh mortar!

    Now I'll brew a keg of Munich Lager that should be ready in time for the first pizzas, I hope...

    Very nice. Now comes the fun part, then after that, the really fun part. Hope you are enjoying the summer; I'm starting to look forward to spring here. Winter hasn't been bad, but some outdoor living sounds pretty good.

      Yes, still a long way to go before the real fun part begins! This summer sort of drained my energy a bit - the construction site is in full sun and I can really start working there only after 4 p.m. But, as I said, it is getting cooler, down a degree or two from the 31 C we've enjoyed last week.

      Ciao, ci vediam'
