Hi from Assinippi - 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 Assinippi

    Hi from Assinippi MA (a little corner of Hanover right next to Norwell where I live). Un believable site. I was browsing and now I've got my curiosity going. The wife makes great pizza in the electric oven. I'm not sure that I want to build a wood fired pizza oven, but the idea has me intrigued.

    If you build it they will come. Welcome aboard, glad to see you found this site. There is a lot to be learned here even if you never plan on a build.

      Well then you're in the WRONG place! I wasn't serious about actually building a WFO until I stumbled across this board. I figured:

      1. It's too expensive
      2. The skills required are out of my league
      3. The whole idea is just insane (what will the neighbors think??)

      The folks on here really convinced us to do it.

      #1 - is definitely a variable. You can go as fancy or as cheap as you want and still make awesome pizza.

      #2 - is for the most part completely wrong.

      #3 - Who cares what others think! We just had our end-of-the-year Girl Scout Troop party today. All the parents and daughters were blown away at making their own First Class pizza. Your first pizza party will make the effort worth it.

        Assinippi huh? Geeze, you must have a thousand good takeoffs on that name for your town. I'd love to hear the jargon for what the locals call the town after a couple of beers!

        Welcome! Come on in. Make yourself at home. Stay awhile!
