Hello from Turkey - 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!

  • Hello from Turkey

    While doing some research on ovens and how to use them I came across this forum and can't wait to get into the pages. I am an ex-pat Irishman and retired to Turkey last year. There is a long tradition of wood-fired stone ovens here and the bread I get everyday comes from one such place. Being an avid amateur cook I felt that an oven would be a must have to try to learn about bread and baking.

    My oven has just been completed and landscaping of the area is ongoing. Knowing nothing about it I called in an expert 'firin-usta' for the build. They are hard to find and my man was quite experienced at 82 years old. His labourer was a mere 65. When I figure out how to I shall post some photographs. I look forward to reading of your experiences and hope to make some small contribution in due course.

    ~waves hi~

    To attach pics:

    Upload onto your computer
    Either use 'Quote' (bottom left hand side of any post) or 'Go Advanced' (under Quick Reply) (If you're starting a thread you needn't worry about this - it will take you where you need to be automatically).
    From the Advanced Screen, click on the little paper clip icon in the screen's tool bar
    That opens a separate window. Click Browse.
    That opens your Pictures file (if you put it elsewhere you can browse around from there until you find your pic)
    Click on the pic you want to upload
    Click Save
    Wait a minute while it uploads (if you have dial up go walk the dog)
    Click Close Window
    Go back to the paper clip icon and click it again.
    It will give you an option (or options if you uploaded more than one pic) that looks like [disable][ATTACH]12345[ATTACH][/disable] - click it
    The same thing will appear in your post - that is the pic, don't worry that it doesn't look like it yet.
    Finish your post, click Post and it should show your pic in your new post.

    *Ignore the [disable] thingie - it's the stuff in between that matters.

              Thanks a lot for the welcome. I've had a browse and am blown away by the range of info in the forum. Found myself jumping from one thread to another. I think it would be easy to get a bit addicted. (Must have been on here 10 times yesterday.) Thanks to Archena for the pic info, Ill sort some out.
