Roasted Eggplant Dip-blue bowl-pita bread

Fire Roasted Eggplant Dip

Oct 30, 2019

Autumn is my favorite season—cooler temperatures, longer nights and best of all: harvest! Eggplant is among the best of the bounty. Delicious dips such as baba ghanouj (also called baba ghanoush) and muttabal are mainly roasted eggplant, with most recipes placing the fruit directly on a gas burner and roasting until the skin cracks. What better candidate for the wood fired oven? I picked up four eggplants to roast in... Read More

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... Read More
