Hi from Sydney, Australia - 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!

  • Hi from Sydney, Australia

    Hi guys, just thought id pop in and say hi, im from Australia but both my parents are from Calabria, Italy. I love cooking and have cooked in my nonna's (grandmother's) oven many times making bread etc..

    Finally i convinced my dad to start his before i do mine anyways im doing a story on how our oven is going in the Brick Oven Photos section so i hope i give back something to this great site. I love cooking and once the oven is up and ready i will be posting many recipes that i have cooked over the years.

        Hi Adrian and welcome aboard.
        Good to see another Aussie on the forum. If we keep going, we will out number the others. Goes to show our enthusiasm to good things.
        Good to see your oven construction pics and look foreward to it's completion.

        Also interested in some of those traditional Italian receipes that your grandmother used.

        Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

        The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know
