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!

  • Acoma's Sauce

    My wife finally relented. It is a modified sauce of a recipe she aquired a long while back. Here we go.

    2 lbs frresh tomatoes
    1 can tomato paste
    4 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
    1 clove garlic
    1 Tsp fresh oregano
    1/4 Tsp fresh pepper
    2 Tbsp Olive oil
    2/3 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup dry white wine

    For the fresh tomatoes, simmer for 1.5 hours with 2 whole cloves of garlic and 5 large basil leaves. Remove leaves before mixing in blender.

    Place tomatoes with tomato paste, parsley, garlic, oregano and pepper in blender or food processor. Process until smooth.

    Heat olive oil in med heat, and saute onions for about 2 minutes. Add tomato mixture and wine. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour 30 minutes. Stir the sauce occasionally.

    This will make about 4 cups of sauce. Increase quantities as needed for yourself.

          Dave, they're romano.

          Xabia, nothing held back.. She can't use salt do to heart issues, so if you want a little more flavor, add a pinch of medditeranian crushed salt, or your favorite type. She said that you can go to 4 Tbsp oil, but she does not favor that heavy of ingredients. I agree with her about the current recipe. It does have a perfect, smooth flavor that compliments the pizza and ingredients perfectly.

            I mis quoted my wife and have updated her recipe. She says the flavors are more exact. See below.

              Re: Acoma's Sauce

              I'm making this sauce for this weekend,
              so far I've cooked down my Toms (1/2Truss & 1/2Roma's) with the basil & garlic

              BUT - I first removed the skins from the skins by crossing the bottoms and dropping into a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds.

              and instead of blending the lot, I pushed it through a metal sieve to remove all the seeds. I read somewhere that tomato seeds release a very bitter flavour when they opened.

              cheers,
              Mitch.
