Fior di latte - 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.

  • Fior di latte

    We have found an very good producer of Fior de Latte locally. It's a cow milk mozzarella made with the same processes at Mozzarella di Bufala. Hand made processes, pulling, shaping, etc. The producer even owns the cows and has a high quality and consistent supply of milk from a few miles away. I will try to get photos of the process. They pack the balls in a hand tied baggie with water from the production.

    It is not as creamy inside the ball as Mozzarella di Bufala, and not as tangy. You can definitely taste and feel the difference, but on the specturm of mozzarella, where a hard ball of dried mozzarella is a 1, and fresh Mozzarella di Bufala di Campania is a 10, it's a solid 7.5. The taste is good, ane the texture is soft and springy. It's much better than the supermarket Mozzarella you find in Italy, which is sealed in a baggie with water.

    For anyone who lives close to an Italian import market, it's an upgrade from a more generic Mozzarella. Definitely worth a try.

    Fior di latte -- redux

    We ate in a restaurant this evening that had three different Pizza Margherita.

    The basic model, then a Margherita with fior di latte for about $1 more, or a Margherita with small cherry tomato sized mozzarella di bufala for about $3 more.

    We shot for the middle, don't ask me why, for a Pizza Margherita as an appetizer, and it was outstanding. You could taste the quality of the cheese. More body adn flavor than basic mozzarella, and though not as tangy as the di bufala, it was perfect on a pizza.

    Mozzarella di bufala in a Caprese salad, and fior di latte on your pizza seems to work.
