Pizza Training - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

    New to the site! Great site by the way, I'm looking into purchasing and putting together an oven with my father. In one of your previous threads you mentioned that their were schools for pizza training here in the US. I live near NY city, can you make any recommendations or give me any information about this.

    Welcome aboard. You are definitely going to enjoy the whole process -- the oven, the cooking, the fire and the food. It's great.

    Here's what I know about brick oven cooking schools.

    You can go to Italy:

    Enzo Coccia
    Pizza Consulting.it
    The trainers' trainer. Everyone says Enzo is excellent.

    Scuola Italiana Pizzaioli
    Via Sansonessa, 49
    30021 Caorle (VE)
    Tel. 0421 83178
    Email info@scuolapizza.
    I talked with Tony Gemingnani, who took classes there and said it was good.

    Pamela Sheldon Johns has a school in Montepuciano for homeowners and has a brick oven.

    There is a school in Paestum, an hour south of Naples that has brick oven cooking lessons as part of their regular school. They produce buffalo milk for cheese. I have heard good things about the classes.

    In California, there is the VPN school in Southern California. I know someone who attended and can answer questions on that off-line.

    In NorCal, we will be running cooking class from our demo kitchen in Healdsburg starting this spring. The classes are targeted at home owners, not professional chefs.

    Does anyone else know of a good school on the east coast?

    Perhaps someone can contact us about setting one up.

      Any more information on the NorCal classes, yet?
      I grew up in Santa Rosa, and my Mom was from an old Italian family in Healdsburg!
      I'm not to far away, in the San Jose area...

        Looking forward to meeting you


        It's a small world. We went the other way, moving to Healdsburg from Palo Alto. Many of the Healdsburg Italian families came from Lucca and still have relatives they meet there.

        We will be ready to host people for cooking in about four weeks. The oven is functioning wonderfully, and we are finishing up the outdoor cabinets, work surfaces, etc. The rain isn't helping. A number of people have come by to see the installation work in progress. We have a Casa90, a Calore fireplace and nice new poured concrete work surfaces. The outdoor kitchen is set in a small vineyard.

        Drop me a private email and we can talk about dates. You can come up and see family and cook some great pizza.
