Forno Bravo Pre-Cured Ovens

Why Did Forno Bravo Start Offering Pre-Cured Ovens?

A Girl and Her Dragon – Beyond Pizza

You can cook more than just pizza in that oven of yours. I know, I know, sacrilege! It’s a pizza oven for a reason! Hear me out though.

In response to their requests, I did a bit... Read More

Roasted Chicken in Oven

Herb Roasted Chicken

Jan 04, 2016

I have always found comfort in roasted chicken, both the process of making a roasted chicken and eating one. It always reminds me of a Sunday supper with the entire family around the table. If your Family is anything like mine, 7 of us, you might need two birds. The cooking time will largely depend on the temperature of your wood burning oven, a 3 pound bird will take somewhere...

Instant Pickled Wood Fired Roasted Chilies

Nov 09, 2015

As a topping, Instant Pickled Wood Fired Chilies is the hot new thing here at Casa Ingles Pizzeria. Each batch has a slightly different flavor. The last round I did with Fresno chilies were sitting on top of a fresh mozzarella pizza with La Quercia prosciutto and a little of their Nduja (prosciutto spread), and finished with dressed baby arugula, and the chilies added a nice spicy sweetness, but also hinted at a lemony note...
