New Webisode: Brigit Binns, Wood-Fire Cooking Part 3
We’re back with Part 3 of our wood-fired mini-class with the talented Brigit Binns, and her equally talented “Cinder-Fella,” husband Casey Biggs. Here, at the Forno Bravo Wood-fired Expo, held at the beautiful Talbott Vineyards in Carmel Valley, CA, they demonstrate their own colorful version of a Mediterranean-inspired chorizo-fennel pizza. Brigit always has lots of cooking tips for us, and Casey has figured out a few things, too, regarding how to best “drive” the oven, which they share both here and also at their wonderful Refugio Conference Center in Paso Robles, located in California’s Central Coastal wine region. Enjoy these final few “don’t you wish you were there” moments with Brigit and Casey before we move on to yet another story next month as our Pizza Quest continues. After all, as we well know by now, the quest just never ends….
