Chris Bianco no longer at the helm - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



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!

    He's still alive, but it's sad news nonetheless:

    Chris Bianco no longer making pizzas

    Wow. That's big news. We definitely wish him the best with his health -- and it sounds like he has some pretty trusty folks around him.

      I am planning to be there next Thursday. Having been there before, I will have something to compare to. I will report back!

          What a shame. I hope his health improves. Asthma can be a killer.

            My wife and I were there in late December. We saw him prepping for open, but wasn't there when we were seated at 7. We were told he wasn't feeling well and went home early (this was before the announcement). The pizza was still incredible, but it's not the same not getting to say hi to Chris. He was the inspiration for our home oven after we moved from Phoenix and couldn't find anything comparable. I wish him all the best with his health, most important thing.

              Well, I am back from Phoenix but ended up not going to Pizzaria Bianco. Just too crazy and hard to get in after flying. So we ended up at Quiessence - not a pizza place but spectacularly good food - rated by many as the best restaurant in Phoenix. Sorry I can't report on the status of Pizzaria Bianco!
