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!

  • Leaving Florence House

    It is with a great deal of sadness that we are leaving our house in Florence. The family has had a wonderful experience in Italy for the past few years, but there comes a time when you are ready to move on to the next step. Our daughters have said goodbye to their friends, we've packed the house, and we head out on Saturday. Though not before I take photos of the wood-fired grill at La Piazetta.

    We are leaving behind our much used and loved Casa90 at the house, though the owners are happy to see it stay behind. It served us well for many dinner parties, BBQs and birthday parties. We did the same thing in San Gimignano, and left our ItalFiori oven at our rental house there. I'm the Johnny Appleseed of brick ovens.

    The good news is that we have a brick oven at our vacation rental in France, so I get to post a few more recipes from Europe.

    Then, the next step is to get back to Healdsburg, and decide what to do with my Scott ovens there. More to come on that.

    You can always recycle the bricks for a Pompeii oven

      I've been thinking about that. Can you rent a jack hammer from Home Depot?

        You can from my local one but not all of them rent tools.

        What about the one in the house? That's going to be messy.

          How Did You Have 2 Ovens You Don't Like Built?

          It seems reasonable that you could have one oven built and find out that you don't like it. Your complaints regarding the Scott oven are not a secret. But what caused you to have yet another one built? That cracks me up.

            I had a home addition underway before the outdoor oven was finished, and had to make an uninformed decision on what to install inside. So you could say I made two mistakes with one decision.
