Thanksgiving Turkey in a Wood Fired Oven

Nov 16, 2015

Do not be afraid! If you’ve already been making pizza or roasting chickens in the wood fired oven, roasting a turkey is as easy as (pumpkin) pie. Be patient about getting the oven down to roasting temperature of about 500°F – 600°F. Because if you’re rushed and you throw Henny Penny in when the oven’s too hot, you’ll lose the crispy crust. And DO remember to make a strong foil... Read More

Prosciutto, Pesto, Radish & Romanesco Pie

Jul 06, 2015

I am back to pizza making this week, inspired by lesser-used, non-traditional toppings. I am also breaking the golden rule of not overloading the pizza with toppings. Romanesco broccoli or simply Romanesco plays the starring role in this vegetable-driven prosciutto concoction. So what is Romanesco? Credit to the Community Table Website for the best description I’ve come across: “Romanesco appears to be part psychedelic broccoli, part alien life form.” Technically,... Read More

Tuscan Bread

May 26, 2015

This Tuscan style bread is made with a straight mix method. No need to activate the yeast or make a sponge prior to making this bread. Once baked, the loaf has a deep golden brown crust that softens as it rests and a chewy, moderately dense texture. I personally love using this bread for bruschetta or for my toast the morning after baking. The recipe is adapted from the King... Read More

Egg And Leek Pizza

Apr 13, 2015

Eggs are awesome. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or midnight munchie, their versatility is unmatched in the gastronomic world. It is also a popular culinary myth that the pleats in a chef’s toque represent the 100 ways a chef can cook an egg. Adding an egg to pizza is certainly nothing new, but crowning your pie with the yolky richness certainly will elevate it from good to great. In this version I... Read More

Rosemary Focaccia

Mar 19, 2015

I’ve been craving last week’s sweet anise rolls since posting it on the community cookbook. I decided to take the craving as inspiration and turn it into a soft chewy herb laden focaccia. If you are not a fan of rosemary feel free to substitute your favorite herb or olives or even spike it up with a hit of chili flakes. Until next week, feast well! -Chef Bart Read More

Sweet Anise Bread

Sweet Anise Bread

Mar 09, 2015

While my Forno Bravo oven hibernated in its snowy winter jacket this week, my business travel took me to Peru. I had the pleasure of working with a group of chefs from around the Caribbean, Central and South American markets. One of our days was spent exploring local ingredients, artisan producers and the cultural influences that have made Peruvian food a global force. We stopped at chef Eduardo Navarro’s Chaxras...
