Greetings from Calgary Canada - 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!

  • Greetings from Calgary Canada

    Hi everyone. When I lived in the UK in 2006-2008, I once tried to make a pizza. It was awful. A short trip to Florence later introduced me to the glory of thin-crust pizza. I found a G3 Ferrari Pizza Express "Napoli" in a local hardware store, and held it on my lap for the flight back to the UK (and then later back to Canada). Since that time, I've made hundreds upon hundreds of pizzas for my family and my friends and burned out 4 G3 Ferrari ovens, always dreaming of the day when I'd own my own house and be able to build my own forno oven.

    Ladies and gentlemen, that day is today.

    I am now beginning to plan my forno oven. I would use it for my 4-member family on a weekly basis, and for entertaining (parties of 6-20). I'm currently reading through the downloadable plans, and will keep updating here as I go through my build. Thanks for the great plans, and I look forward to joining the community!

    Kind regards,
