I havn't even started building my oven yet but i think my friends and family are keen for some Pizza action because i got 2 wooden peels - one from each side of my family, a nice stainless pizza cutting blade - foot long blade thingy that you rock over the pizza and i also got a book called 500 pizza and flat bread recipes which has some awsome ideas in it.

where are the long oven mitts? I need some more and can't find any on Forno Bravo site. My current pair have burned on the outside and the stuffing is showing. Not quite the heat proof I need.

Shoot, that's how I know my oven's hot enough for pizza.

I use my (too short) fireplace tool to rearrange logs - when I notice all the hair on my forearm is gone, I'm ready to cook!

James, make the oat bran broom bread out of the Whole Grain Bread book. I made it today and it's wonderful. Lovely "sandwichy" bread with great flavor. It rose beautifully and the texture is terrific. It's a nice change from chewy hearth breads. I did use 100% hydration starter instead of the biga, though. The dough was quite soft, but not sticky.

I'm really enjoying the soaker technique for getting better rise and texture in the finished bread.

Santa brought me snow, more snow, and even more snow for Christmas. So....I prayed for rain, and sadly, I got that too. Flooding and intolerable outdoor conditions have kept me indoors for nearly a month. Anybody got a sandbag? The water's risin'

Thumbs up Re: Favorite Christmas presents

Pack your bags and move down here George. No more snow!
The weather here is wonderful, ideal for the oven use. It's a pity that I am kitchen building and little time for cooking.

Cheers.

I didn't get any pizzs/bread baking related presents at all this year... but to be honest it'd be hard to come up with something I haven't already bought for myself .

My brother did give me a brewing set, so look out for more news on the mead brewing front sometime soon.

But my favourite present was a pin cushion from my daughter... For the last 30 years I've been using the one I made in school, although its really ugly. I never did like the design we had to follow. And so when her class made pin cushions at school she found time to make two - and it is so cool and beautiful.
