I survived NPR! - 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!

  • I survived NPR!

    In the end, the radio program was a lot of fun. Michelle, the host, had recommended that I bring some props along, which worked out great. I brought dough, tomatoes, mozzarella di bufala, a Tuscan grill, etc. and we ate and talked about brick ovens and cooking. Michelle threw a great pizza -- it turns out she worked at (owned?) a pizzeria once.

    They will eventually put the broadcast in Podcast format. I will let you know when it is available.

    Thanks for the moral support.

    Sorry to drag up yet another 'old' post, but since I am new here, what is the back story with you and the NPR? What was the segment about (well, pizza, but what else)?

      Hello Grape,
      It was a radio interview on KRCB -- out local NPR affiliate, with Michele Ann Jordan, our local syndicated food writer. She and I talked about brick ovens, pizza, dough, tomatoes, etc. You can listen to the Pod cast -- if you are really interested.
