Pieous, Austin Texas (Dripping Springs, actually) - 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!

  • Pieous, Austin Texas (Dripping Springs, actually)

    About half way to Dripping Springs in the old Cartwright BBQ building, A gentleman named Josh and his wife Paige have opened a great little restaurant. His background is as a bread and pie baker, and he does that too, great boules of sourdough bread and a variety of desert pies. He also smokes pastrami in-store to put on that bread, and it is out of this world.

    The primary focus is WFO pizza, however, and he has a Forno Bravo mounted front and center of the small space (that he rebuilt from scratch himself after gutting the old BBQ joint). He pulls his fresh mozzarella daily, hell everything is fresh and made in house. I have had the pleasure of eating there a couple of times, and both times were outstanding.

    Go early, because he is making the dough by hand and when it is gone, it is gone for the day (same with the pastrami).

        There is also a place in Austin, called Cherry St., that recently opened , and they are hands down fantastic! They run their oven hot, 900+, and the pies are both crispy and chewy.., perfect. Everything is fresh, homemade gnucci, I was there Friday and had mussels swimming in a spicy broth served with warm focacia bread, that was so good it changed my hand writing!

            Cherry st is at 1612 Lavaca.., it's the old Hog Island deli. The owners teamed up with the people at Peche. It's small but with great food and a well stocked bar.
