Pompeii oven in Finland - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

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.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

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.

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!

  • Pompeii oven in Finland

    This oven is built based on the free plans from Forno Bravo. (some modifications) It is situated on an island outside city of Helsinki. Construction started in May 2009 and the last finishing touches were put on in early July 2009.

    The oven cost ca. 1000 US$ in materials and at least 5 gallons of sweat.
    Most of the building materials were odd bits and pieces picked up from friends and neighbours who had building materials left over.
    Base of the oven is from concrete blocks, the black frame is galvanized steel.
    The oven is built from firebricks available locally. The exterior is fashioned like an old Finnish country house with the traditional red earth colour and black tarboard roofing.
    Granite slab for preparing pizzas is fixed to the side of the oven, it sits in stainless steel frame.

    Over 100 pizzas have been baked so far, the oven is just great!
