Hello From the Philippines - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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 the Philippines

    From the tropics but still have a love of great pizza! I started baking pizza on a stone in the oven and am reasonably satisfied with the results. I think now is the time to take it to a higher level and I think this is a great place to pick up info on how to do this.

    I am planning to build an oven on my own, given the logistical difficulties of ordering and getting an oven sent over here. I have the Pompei oven plans and am searching for material.

    I've searched the forums and it looks like there are some issues with getting bricks and with finding good wood to burn. As I am sure you can imagine, we don't have fireplaces so finding good wood to burn in an oven is a challenge.

    I have seen posts from some people in this part of the world (Thailand and the Philippines) and am hoping to hear more on experiences.

    Over the next few weeks, I will be doing research. There are a few Italian pizza places around town that have wood burning ovens so I plan to interview the owners quite a bit.

    Wish me luck and I will be sure and post when we break ground on the oven.

    Hi rico. Hopefully the forum will be a valuable resource in your oven construction.
