California Homemade Food Act, AB 1616 - 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!

  • California Homemade Food Act, AB 1616

    This bill is awaiting the Governor's signature and is meant to make it reasonably easy and affordable to become a licensed food producer and allow some limited commercial food handling and production at home.

    What do you think?

    Without reading it, does it have sanitary checks and proper food handling in the bill? I'm pretty sure moonbeam will sign it regardless.

      It's my understanding that it requires a food handling course and certificate. In addition permits, of course, will be needed from the local governments. An example would be a city business lic.

      There is nothing quite like food poisoning to make a day and the following night special..


      Here is a link to the Ca/Gov information.

        In Utah I need a food handlers permit, 3 basin stainless sink, handwash sink, be able to wash down the whole place. I know of a lasy that was doing catering and she did not have the proper (comercial kichen like) equiptment and she quit rather than update to code.

        Do your homework.
