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!

  • Help: permits for using oven on a sidewalk

    Hi All,

    My fiance and I are hiring a pizza restaurant to bring their portable wood burning oven to make pizza for our wedding. They've told me that they need permits from the city/fire department but they don't know what those permits are. We are in New York City (Brooklyn, to be precise). Does anyone know what I need to get?

    Thanks, Maeve

    Hi Mae241,

    Contact the fire department to ask but, please don't use their emergency number.

    Look in the city directory for an engineering, safety or permits department. Ask them.

    Cheers,
    Bob

      They've told me that they need permits from the city/fire department
      That might well be true. There might be health department requirements for food vendors, as well. New York City, like most large cities, is fussy about this.
      they don't know what those permits are.
      I'm thinking this is like hiring a plumber who doesn't know how to pull a building permit.
      You might want to stroll down to your local fire station. Those are the people who will be enforcing this. If they don't know, call 311.

      I keep coming back to the thought that it's up to to vendor to get the appropriate permits.
