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!

    Cricket,

    Google up Orlando Foods; they're in NJ, and they're the importer on the east coast. They can tell you who distributes where.

      Jim,

      Thanks so much for the information on Orlando Foods. They are located just a few miles from my home. I will call them tomorrow. It would be great to be able to get Caputo flour without having to pay the high cost of shipping for weight.

        Most distributors only carry the 25KG (55lb) bags of caputo flours, particularly the pizzaria rosso flour.

        Penn-mac sells repackaged 10 pound bags, but they're in Pittsburgh, still a shipping issue.

        Maybe a group buy?

          Hey Jerseycricket,

          Did you ever find anywhere to buy the flour up there. I'll be up there over Memorial Day and would like to bring some back with me.

            Chuckster,

            It's not easy to obtain. Your best bet is to order it from the Forno Bravo Store. I did buy some Italian 00 flour (not Caputo) at a small Italian speciality shop in Lodi, NJ.

              I had my sister pick a 55lb bag of Caputo flour for me from E&S Food, Elmwood Park, NJ. It worked out great and I was able to bring it back with me to North Carolina when I went up for my Dad's birthday.

              Here's the website: ES Food - Home . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
              $38 for the 55 lbs.
              Call before you go b/c they are mostly a wholesale facility and don't want you coming when they are trying to load trucks.

              Looking forward to using it this weekend. Whippee!!!
