While reading through the ingredients, my mouth started to water, and I just had to see how it worked in the Forno Bravo oven. Grab your cast-iron skillet, or similar baking pan, your scotch whiskey, and your sense... Read More

Roasting Chestnuts in a Wood Fired Oven

Dec 05, 2018

History & Harvest Season Chestnut trees once covered huge swaths of East Coast forests until a fungal blight arrived from Asia, killing off about 3.5 billion trees in the first half of the 20th century. But lucky me, two of the very few surviving productive trees are right behind my house in the Hudson Valley. So the last couple of weeks have been a race between me and the critters... Read More

Thank you to home chef, Ahmad Zeabi, for sharing this special holiday bread recipe with us! In this recipe, we are traveling to the Middle East.

Oohey Gooey S’mores Dippers

May 09, 2016

Who doesn’t love S’mores?? But crowding around the front of your wood burning oven, while everyone is trying to stuff their arm into the oven to toast a marshmallow over the remaining embers after dinner is a bit of a buzz kill. Out comes the cast iron skillet and in goes all the yum yum’ needed to finish of any wood fired evening… Load a plate with Graham Crackers, or... Read More

Spring Strawberry Galette

Feb 08, 2016

  Serves 5 to 6 This dough is gorgeously butter-centric and thus a bit tricky to work with, so I form and bake it atop a sheet of baking parchment that can easily be slid from counter to baking peel and into the oven, then back onto a peel and then a serving platter. The browned parchment paper is quite pretty, but trim or tear it away if you like.... Read More
