Hi Wiley,

Can you give a book report on this book, Wood Fired Cooking? Is it helpful with your wood oven? Does it provide good information for improving your skills using the oven? And a collection of useful recipes?

Thanks

And Les,

The WFO is the perfect tool for seasoning cast iron... In a hot oven (up to temp,-- fire out, -- door on), grease up the pot, and put it in the oven for as long as you want (up side down so any excess oil drips out of the pot)... Do this a few times, and the pot will look and work like an 'old' seasoned pot...

Couldn't you wait until after the holidays to give poor Wiley homework?

Jed,
This book came as a complete surprise to me. It came as a gift from my dear wife. The other two cookbooks came from two of my step-daughters and were on a list of what I wanted for Christmas.

I'm only on page 42 of "Wood-Fired Cooking" and so far my thoughts run to thinking this is a book for coffee table as well as perhaps the kitchen. Although I photocopy recipes from books when actually preparing the recipes...helps to keep the books clean.

Including the index there are 200 pages to the book. It's an artsy book with lots of well done pictures and some recipes that look interesting. It's a bit early to give a final verdict on the book as a whole. But there is at least one recipe I plan on trying.

The author includes the "Pan a l'Ancienne" recipe from Peter Reinhart's "Bread Baker's Apprentice" and one would assume she has his permission for that inclusion. This book is published by Ten Speed Press the same people who do Peter Reinhart's books.

Hope this helps,
Wiley

Thumbs up Re: What did Santa bring you?

Surely a person with a workshop like yours can find something special that will fit that spare niche in your garage. Than tool that you just might use one day or the other one that you've been wanting for ages.
You could always take the wife out for a special romantic dinner but then all you have are memories or maybe a promise.

Cheers.

Neill

hey neil...
I am looking at a mig welder... always wanted one... Do have a special lady, but not a wife, which is why i get to buy all the cool things i get... if i had a wife she might have some strange idea about putting a car in the garage...??? cant imagine that,, and yes im sure there are wives that let you buy cool stuff (somewhere) just prefer it the way it is..
Cheers
