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!

  • Rabbit Confit Pizza and Fig Cambozola Pizza

    Last weekend we had a family pizza and pool party and made the following:

    1) Rabbit Confit with Goat Cheese Pizza (I only have a pic of the rabbit I'm confit-ing in olive oil and garlic. Everyone ate it up so fast I couldn't photagraph the final product ) but, the mild yet rich rabbit paired well with the earthy goat cheese.

    2) Home cured citrus salmon Gravlox and Creme Fraishe Pizza (Susan Goin "Luques Restaurant" Gravlox recipe) with red onion and Arugula or Rocket on top. Works great as an appetizer pizza.

    3) Home grown mission and green fig pizza with Italien cambozola cheese, prosuitto and honey. A new summer tradition is born. It was soooo good!

    Here are the pics in (I hope) proper order:

    Hi Dino!

    Good combos! I have been doing a range of fig pizzas and they are pretty awesome. A real surprise to WFO newbies/guests!

    Thanks!

      Ya Jay, the figs are a real surprise to me. Last night we had a friend over who doesn't eat cheese (doesn't like cheese -mad that's wierd) so we did half cheese which worked out especially well with the fig and proscuitto pizza. I omitted the honey this time so it was more savory and salty from the prosuitto. It was great.

      But...the real news (for me at least) was that I froze my pizzas dough balls from 2 weeks ago that I had left over, defrosted in the fridge overnight, and pulled out 3 hours before making the pies. Our house was about 82 deg. To my surprise, they came alive immediately, started bubbling and growing! It made no difference if I "worked" them a bit into a new ball, or left them in melty-disc shape. The pizza crust had puffed correctly in the oven, but had a "chewier" chew yet had an exceptional flavor. Kinda better in some ways than just 2 day, un-frozed dough. This opens up whole new way for me to prep for a party.

        I agree Dino. I don't make a practice of freezing dough but so long as it is less than a month or so, I have seen little real impact. More different than better or worse. OTOH, we are both assuming great dough to begin with!

        One of my favorite fig pies is figs, bacon, blue cheese and walnuts. It would be quite good without the blue cheese for those who are lactose intolerant or blue cheese averse. I prefer bacon for its smokiness over the unsmoked alternatives. I crisp it and break it before baking.

        Thanks!
        Jay
