Forno Bravo history? - 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!

    Yeah James.. Were you horribly disfigured in a La Panyol explosion on the East Coast in the early eighties? I'm sorry. That was uncalled for. I really have a lot of growing up to do..

      Hey Jim,

      Forno Bravo came from a friend in Healdsburg. Her family is from Lucca, as are some of the winery owners and grape growers in Healsburg (Bacchi, Seghesio, Foppiano, Rafinelli, etc.). She was visiting us, along with her cousins right when the company was coming together. It was one of those wine-induced, late night things, where most of what we came up with couldn't be printed. Still, I think the name is pretty good, and it grows on you.

      I play tennis, and you hear the other guys calling out Bravo to each other when they hit a good shot.

      Brava Brenda.

        LOL. How did you know? Most people just don't say anything.
