Any California Concessionaires around? - 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!

  • Any California Concessionaires around?

    Hi All,

    I swear, if it weren't for the waves and 80 degree days in March i'd pick up and move out of this state!

    So my wife and I are very seriously looking into starting a small MFWO catering operation here in Southern California. The pizza side of that i'm good with, what I'm not so good with is figuring out how to get the state of California (and all of it's wonderful cities) to let me sell sed pizza.

    There's a ton of info out there on the web but sorting through all of it and figuring out what applies to me is turning out to be a nightmare. Honestly, as sad as it is, I still don't even have a good idea of where to start.

    I even read one article that had a paragraph about possibly needing to rent a commissary or professional kitchen and I just about fell out of my chair. If that's the case then this might be over before it even started.

    Anyway, if anyone has any experience with getting a mobile catering gig off the ground here in CA, AND wouldn't mind letting me bend your ear a bit i'd be eternally grateful!
