Wood Fired Cooking Video Input - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

  • Wood Fired Cooking Video Input

    Forno Bravo is in the early stages of putting together a video on oven management and cooking. As we are putting the content together now, it seems like a good idea to throw open to discussion topics you want to make sure we cover.

    The first video is only for cooking, not installation.

    Let us know what you think MUST be in the final video (and not on the cutting room floor).

    -Size and type of wood
    -Method of fire starting, including heating the flue and placement and movement of fire
    -Length of firing, given some variables (thickness of masonry)
    -Adjusting for variations in temperature
    -And how to look darn good while doing it!

      The video should emphasize things that are hard to describe, but easy to show. Here's one on baking:


      Here's a bit of dough stretching show-off:


      On the other hand, a link to an actually useful tutorial:


      Video quality is important, glitzy production values aren't.

      Good luck

        In a bit of good fortune, we have a happy Forno Bravo customer who is also a movie producer (no really) and is here in Florence for a year. Talk about the stars lining up. We are hoping to do this together, and I will look to him for a lot of direction on production values. More to come on that. He is really into his oven and cooking, so he is willing to slum it on this project.

        Your examples are helpful. Thanks for those.
