Jeff, get on that plane and get your Aussie arce over here! You are more than welcome. Help me build one of those rotiousery things while you are here.

And I know what you mean about the tight fitting bricks. I have decided to chill a bit and just go with it. The cracks just are't that serious.

This year's bread bash will have an Italian theme, so I'm practising my pizza forming and reading up on regional Italian breads. Speaking of which, I just got a copy of Daniel Leader's Local Breads: Sourdough and Whole-Grain Recipes from Europe's Best Artisan Bakers (New York: W. W. Norton, 2007). It contains some really fine formulas and unusual techniques, including Italian bread and pizza recipes that make it well worth the price. Just a plain good read, too.

Jim
Yea, that was really nice of James. I don't want to take advantage though (this time!). Just doesn't seem to be too many Forno Bravo members attending. Maybe I can make it a bigger deal one day.
And thanks for the book info. I am going to get myself one. Birthday coming up!

James, when I plan to host the Reno event, I will take you up on it if the opportunity exist. Les has a complete back yard, and mine won't be, but what the heck! I am shooting for June for our Regional Reno.

OK... here it is...write this down ...in ink!

1st annual World Peace-a Party

If you can't come Sac, maybe you could host your own and make it true "worldly" event.
Texas and Turkey are on board.

Acoma,

This is really good. You, Dusty and the boys go for it. Wish I could be there. I want a whole raft of embarassing, compromising photographs. Have a really good time. My thoughts are with you all.

Cheers,

Jim

Geeze, me too. I'm still thinking about it in the back of my mind. Probably never happen, but it would be a blast!

If its not raining I'll be sure to fire my oven up, too. Hey if I get a move on with posting pictures, you'll be able to see them while having your pizza party.

Right? We're a couple of hours in advance, aren't we? (never can figure out which way round it works...)

That sounds fantastic. And yea.... I can never remember that time change thing either. I think you're about 6-8 hours ahead but not sure. I'm just glad to hear you will be firing your oven up - maybe even have a friend or two over.
I knew I could count on Switzerland!
