Here's a curious item: - 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!

    It seems to be a iron oven that heats a big pizza stone with a fire underneath. Ever seen anything like it?

    Yep, there’s one or two over here in the UK and you see them at the markets in Germany. Basically they are a good German engineering solution to the problem of making a wood-fired oven portable. Use steel as the oven shell and have the baking stones with the fire underneath. Heypresto working oven – that will bake most thing including Flammkuchen. You often find a version of this type of oven above / on top of European wood stoves / room heaters that are manufactured from steel.

    If any one wants to know more about Flammkuchen post a reply and I will post some information

        Flammenkuchen recipe

        Flammen = flames,

        Kuchen = cake

        But the so called "cake" is not en flambe'. It is just baked golden brown. Here is one recipe, but don't expect anything sweet!


        Yeast Paste

        250 g flour
        150 ml cream
        100 ml sour cream
        1 egg


        Mix flour with salt, dissolve yeast in lukewarm water (50 ml).
        Mix it with the flour until you have a firm past.
        DON'T LET IT RISE.
        Roll the paste out in a grease pan, the ends up a little.
        Mix the cream, sour cream, and egg.
        Pour it on the paste and put bacon and onions on it.

        Put the pan in the 'cold' oven.
        Bake it for 15 min at 150 C (300 F) and then
        15 min at 200C (400F).
        It should be golden brown

        (M) Sorry to steal your thunder, Alf, but when dmun said,
        "sure, I'll bite", I figured he was hungry!
