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!

    Welcome to our newest forum. Drake's posting on his new local wood-fired restaurant motivated this section. This could work well -- people ask us to recommend good brick oven restaurants when they travel, so let's build up a nice list.

          Coal Fired

          Captain,

          I grew up in Philadelphia, where all the pizza ovens in South Philly were coal fired. Maybe not NYC, but close, so I know what you mean. Still, you guys don't know how to make a real cheese steak with sauce and onions. Gotta have good bread.

              Cheese Steak

              Ronnie,

              Damn the clogged arteries, full speed ahead to that perfect Philly Cheese Steak. I've got a recipe from Pat's in South Philly that will make you weep, shortly before the heart attack.

                  Hi James!

                  Any chance someone can take the recommendations on this list and put them on a Google map or something like that so we can quickly locate recommended pizzarias? (Or am I simply overlooking an existing feature???

                  Thanks in advance!

                    Pizza Napoletana in Mountain View, California is one of the best we have had outside of the Italian part of Switzerland.

                    Also, Tony's Pizza in San Francisco is outstanding as well. I learned of this place from Peter's site! Only drawback is its about an hour minimum wait for a table.

                        Simply list their address on this forum and type it into Google maps for the directions and front picture of the premises.
                        To add to the best restaurants, I believe the you need to give Russell Jeavon's Willunga restaurant a miss since the new owners have taken over and rung the neck out of it.

                          We used to live about 40 minutes away from here. Still one of the best around!

                            I agree with you on the Lombardi's vote. It's the best pizza I've had, hoping to copy it when i get my oven going.

                              This is my favorite brick oven pizza. It is now natural gas fired, previously coal. They've been open since 1917 and make an awesome pie! The place is basicaly unchanged since my 74 year old father ate here when he was in high school. Their hours are screwy, M-F lunch 11-1 then 3-9, Sat-Sun only 3-9. It took me a while to figure out why the hours where what they are, they fire oven in morning for lunch then at 1:00 sharp they fire till 3:00 for cooking the rest of the evening shift. If your ever in the Piscataway NJ area its a must stop! Plug it into your Garmin. P.S. Cash only.
