Anyone in Central France - Chateauroux area - 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!

  • Anyone in Central France - Chateauroux area

    I'll be based out of this area for most of June.
    I may need to build a rustic oven so I don't go into withdrawals. Any tips on local restaurants and recommendations on Boulangeries and the basic build materials would be appreciated.

    So how was your trip then, Chris?

    As we know, real pizza is a big thing in France, with many properties having a WFO of some sort. You probably didn't have to travel far to a decent pizzeria, either.

    So can we have some details please?!

      Dick, Sorry to disappoint regarding the pizza in France, but I didn't get any.. I was hoping to spend a couple of days with a baker that uses Bio flour and a WFO, this didn't happen.. Family/friend affairs trumped everything.. I was able to take a few days and get over to the Burgundy area and down to Carcassonne and Sarlat.. Great food and breads but No Pizza.. I really need a WFO at the family home in France..

        Well I'm sorry about that - and surprised; maybe you were just very unlucky. Some of the best pizza I've ever had has been in France!

        You are very fortunate to have a family home there.

        It won't be hard to get a WFO locally.
