Anyone heard of this?????? - 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!

  • Anyone heard of this??????

    Yesterday I was giving a dough making demo at the local farmer's market and I had at least 3 ppl ask me whether I had tried a dough recipe that was basically "no-knead" and it had self rising flour & yogurt. I couldn't get any more info than that. It sounded interesting enough although I don't think that I'll abandon my method any time soon. Has anyone ever heard or used this recipe?

      No, it wasn't naan. They were using self rising flour & no yeast. Through my web searches I've been able to deduce that you can leaven bread without yeast resulting to what is referred to a "quick breads". Quick breads cover cookies, biscuits, cakes, and a few other things. They use an acid base relationship to leaven the bread where in the case of my query was yogurt. I am just your usual pizza dough guy who is always interested in new techniques and recipes.. I am just curious to know whether this is a good recipe. The people seemed to love this recipe because it was not necessary to knead the dough, and because they didn't have to proof the dough.

          I use yoghurt in some of my bread but I still knead it.

            I assume it is a variation of the no knead breads - typically they reduce the amount of yeast and use very long fermentation ( 18 to 24 hours ) to build gluten instead of using kneading to form gluten. No-Knead Pizza Dough Recipe: Bon Appétit

            I haven't tried that recipe, but others rave about no knead bread, so I would think it should work.
