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!

  • Big Pizza Party - 5 November

    Have rounded up about 11 friends for a big pizza bash on the 5 November and I will be using my "BigBoy" Thunderbird 20L Mixer and doing about 3.2 kg of dough. It will be pushing things to the limit as far as proofing goes - may have to revert back to the flat "under the bed" plastic containers. The recipe will include the standard 65% hydration and 40% (60% hydration) biga.

    Menu will start with breadsticks - separately proofed pizza dough balls - squared and cut into four lengths and rolled out. Cooked for a few minutes then drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with dried Italian herbs. Then the old favourite - rosemary, rock salt and olive oil pizzas followed by a range of pizzas with various toppings. May do a sweet one to follow as a dessert.

      It went very well thanks - rain stayed away and everyone was sufficiently fed so I guess it was successful. No pics unfortunately ... sorry was too busy cooking and everything was consumed.
