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!

  • Finally got it!!!

    Well after months of dough making, swearing, and head banging...I have finally worked out my dough! Have found a really good flour called Lighthouse Flour that is made by Anchor Foods over here in Fremantle. It is a high pro. strong bakers flour and following the dough instructions on the pizza ebook have got the dough really great! It is super stretchy and has a really great flavour to it, I was so happy when I stretched my first pizza by hand instead of using the rolling pin....and puffed up so much, Im still smiling (still a slow process stretching it, but it is slowly getting better...trying to work out the right style to stretch other than over the knuckles!). Still use the rolling pin when I do choc pizzas for a nice flat crisp base and for people who want a thin, crispy pizza. The only question I have is when I make Calzones, I find that it sticks to the floor of the oven...not too sure why. I find I have to cook it on the peel for a bit then move it to the floor to finsh it off. Does anyone do the same or do you guys have any ideas why this happens??

    Cheers
    Scott

    I usually use Allied Mills pizza flour, but used some Lighthouse pizza flour the other day, when I visited my sister in another state. It made a very light dough that handled well and cooked beautifully.It is not available here, a pity.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        Have done some bread...and yes, it does seem to bake better when you get some steam going. French sticks and rolls work really well. Going to do a big arse loaf soon...always good fun!
