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!

  • Best Commercial Flour - Australia

    Although the Italian "00" flour is available here and works quite well, I have found the "Bakers Flour", available from Coles and Woolworths, produces good results. I heard that a number of restaurants are using Bakers Flour too which is a good indicator of suitability.

    Anyone found any other local flour suitable for pizza making?

    Hi Heliman,
    there are numerous postings on this topic, here are a few to chew over:

    http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f19/...alia-7005.html

    Not sure what is available in Perth, check out your Italian grocery stores for the best!
    I have tried the 00 flours but not the Caputo brand and my palate can't detect anything special over the Gaganis special white flour. My greatest critic, (the other half) is also more than pleased and not too happy with me wanting to try different brands.

    Cheers.

      Hi Neill - tks for the feedback.

      I might drop by a the "All About Bread" bread shop tomorrow to see what they have. Don't think that they will have Caputo though so may have to widen my search for something Italian to include the speciality shops as well.

      I'll report back on the results of my flour expedition later...

          Hi,

          I use Weston Milling Milano Pizza Flour, which is distributed all around Australia. Unfortunately it is only stocked by major food distributors, and available in 2 sizes 12.5 kg and 25 kg bags.

          I managed to get the distributors to sell me a bag. Very cheap considering the quality.

          It is the best flour I have used to date, and has 11.5% Gluten. The only downside is they close at 05:30 every morning......Yawn

          I hope this helps.

            That sounds fantastic Martyn - I've just looked them up here in Perth and I will see if I can make contact wth them tomorrow.

            Hopefully they will let me buy a bag of the stuff to try. Sounds like a really great product!

              I have found the Weston Milling Milano Pizza Flour is sold at Campbell's Cash and Carry here in Melbourne, but you require an ABN to buy.

                Re: Best Commercial Flour - Australia

                I have just recently tried Manildra Pizza flour

                It gave mixed results, texture and taste were great.
                BUT - it seems to burn very easily.

                I meant to ring and find out if it had sugar added.

                Give it a try and let me know.... It's fairly cheap, sold in 12.5kg bags.
