Description: Our goal is to expose you to the wonders of woodfired cooking and give you a chance to see how this old-fashioned method can magically transform raw ingredients. We’ll also spend time in our indoor teaching kitchen equipped with a Viking gas oven and a Wolf electric oven. So if you don’t have a stone oven on your patio, if you don’t have the patience to wait for logs to catch fire, or if it’s pouring rain and the romance of being outside dims, never fear. We’ll give you the recipes we’ve developed and the techniques you’ll need to make beautiful Italian-inspired food in your own home oven.
