Mozzarella Redux - 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.

  • Mozzarella Redux

    I have been asked a number of times recently if anyone has a good source of mail order Mozzarella -- either domestic or imported. Here in Healdsburg, we can buy domestic and imports at Oakville Grocery, The Cheese Board, and (of course) Trader Joe's. Un pocco caro, but findable.

    For areas where you can't find it (or where you just don't want to drive aroudn looking for a good supply), does anyone have leads on a good Internet store that stocks high quality fresh mozzarella, and ships it at a reasonable price?

    This keeps coming up, and it seems reasonable that there is a good solution, so any input here would be helpful.

    The only internet source for cheeses I know of is epicurious.com. They've got some 10,000 recipes online (bread, too). Only problem is they seem a bit pricey for specialty foods. Maybe have a look.

      Hi James--I've ordered from Vern's Cheese in Wisconsin.They sell Grande brand Mozarella. It's pretty good for a domestic cheese. ---Mel

        It's the shipping

        Hi Mel,

        I just logged onto Vern's Cheese, and the shipping is a killer. Over $12 for a $5 1lb piece of cheese. Then I looked at the 6lb bag, and shipping was still $12.

        I'll bet they are more competitive shipping locally.

        Maybe we need a number of sources in different geographies.

          Hi James--When I ordered from Vern's I ordered quite a bit of other cheese in addition to the Mozarella so the shipping was not that bad. I just got a shipment of 12 pounds of Polly-o Mozzarella from a friend of ours in southern Cal. I am going to check to see if she can hook us up with a local distibuter,her husband works in the food industry. ---Mel

            Thanks Mel,
            Great idea. It's like the radio commercial. "Now your have a friend in the cheese (diamond in the commercial) industry." :-) We need an insider.

              Fresh Mozzarella...or Mutz/Moots if you live here

              I live in the Apizza epicenter of the world (in my "Humble" view). New Haven Connecticut. Home of "The big Three" Sally's Apizza, Frank Pepe's Pizzaria Neapolitana, and Modern Apizza. While I cannot say where any of these Folks get their cheese, no self respecting paesan would by their cheese anywhere other than Liuzzi's. www.liuzzicheese.com in North Haven CT.
