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!

  • Whole Grain Products and Recipes

    Okay, here's the flour scoop....

    There is a great need for more fiber in our diets in general and those who have diabetic issues must watch out for highly refined products such as white flour, white pastas and white sugar. I was surprised to be diagnosed as pre-diabetic but reacted to lose weight, excercise more and eat healthier foods with more fiber.

    So....I have taken the path of more fiber in our cooking and that has lead to the whole wheat recipes and products I've posted and asked for. I know it's tougher to bake breads and make pizzas with higher fiber (Integral) products but that's my challenge.

    If anyone has proven (or suggested) recipes using whole grains, seeds, nuts, vegetables, etc., I'd appreciate you posting them or sending them to me. I'll try them and post results. (My wife follows recipes, I modify them!)

    James, I'm finding it hard to find some products in Spain....Rye flour and Pumpernickle for example. We've found a nice whole wheat flour and pasta brand and can find brown rice okay. What have you run across in the more whole grain type products??

    Maybe I'll get a grain mill.....have you seen those here?

    Thanks for feedback, Jim
