Pizzaiolo Training Classes ?? - 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!

  • Pizzaiolo Training Classes ??

    Hi guys,

    My first post! Well I am in the midst of doing all the research and setting up to run a mobile catering business providing authentic neapolitan stonebaked pizza here in the UK. I have worked at 2 pizzeria's and have also taken my homemade pizza oven (not the one we'll be using for the business) to various small festivals and farmers markets, where it went down a treat.

    However I really want to perfect my skills in the traditional method of using a wood fired oven, making dough, stretching/spinning dough, cooking and making the best possible pizza for the public.

    Anyone been to any classes or know anyone who has that can point me in the right direction? I would love to spend some time in Naples or elsewhere in Italy, but even here in the UK would be great. I want it to be a worthwhile investment for the business.

    Thanks !!!!!

    The airfare won't be cheap, but, for English speakers, I don't think you can top NYC for Neapolitan training. There's a couple options for training in NYC, but I think Giulio Adriani is at the top of the list.

    You also might trying contacting Marco Parente, a dough consultant for Franco Manca in Brixton, and see if he'd be willing to train you.

    Lastly, it'll take longer to learn, but Pizzamaking.com is free, and the information is all there.
