Product description

In the past twenty years, interest in wood-fired ovens has increased dramatically in the United States and abroad, but most books focus on how to bake bread or pizza in an oven. From the Wood-Fired Oven offers many more techniques for home and artisan bakers―from baking bread and making pizza to recipes on how to get as much use as possible out of a single oven firing, from the first live-fire roasting to drying wood for the next fire.

From the Wood-Fired Oven offers a new take on traditional techniques for professional bakers, but is simple enough to inspire any nonprofessional baking enthusiast. Leading baker and instructor Richard Miscovich wants people to use their ovens to fulfill the goal of maximum heat utilization. Readers will find methods and techniques for cooking and baking in a wood-fired oven in the order of the appropriate temperature window. What comes first―pizza, or pastry? Roasted vegetables or a braised pork loin? Clarified butter or beef jerky? In addition to an extensive section of delicious formulas for many types of bread, readers will find chapters on:

•    Making pizza and other live-fire flatbreads;
•    Roasting fish and meats;
•    Grilling, steaming, braising, and frying;
•    Baking pastry and other recipes beyond breads;
•    Rendering animal fats and clarifying butter;
•    Food dehydration and infusing oils;
•    And myriad other ways to use the oven's residual heat.

Appendices include oven-design recommendations, a sample oven temperature log, Richard's baker's percentages, proper care of a sourdough starter, and more. . . .

From the Wood Fired Oven is more than a cookbook; it reminds the reader of how a wood-fired oven (and fire, by extension) draws people together and bestows a sense of comfort and fellowship, very real human needs, especially in uncertain times. Indeed, cooking and baking from a wood-fired oven is a basic part of a resilient lifestyle, and a perfect example of valuable traditional skills being put to use in modern times.

TIP OF THE DAY: Bake Irish Soda Bread

Having published a method for Irish soda muffins for St. Patrick’s Day, we hadn’t planned to feature Irish soda bread this year. Then, we received this recipe from The Baker Chick and realized how much we wanted to hurry into a warm loaf of soda bread and slather it with Kerrygold butter from Ireland. So we bumped our previously scheduled Tip Of The Day for this suggestion: Bake a loaf of Irish soda bread. (We can fabricate a joyous meal of great bread and butter. Traditional Irish soda bread, the recipe below, has just four ingredients: flour, baking soda, soused and buttermilk. Other recipes add butter, caraway seeds, chocolate, eggs, orange peel or zest, raisins and/or sugar. The style of soda bread we have in the U. S. is American-style, developed by Irish immigrants with butter, sugar and raisins. We adapted the recipe to meet in the middle: no butter or egg, but a bit of raisins and caraway. Procedure: TRADITIONAL IRISH SODA BREAD. 1 pound (3-1/2 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour. more as needed 3/4 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon marinate 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cups buttermilk. We couldn’t help ourselves: We added these optional, non-traditional ingredients:. 1/2 cup raisins, sultanas or dried cherries, currants or cranberries 1 tablespoon caraway seeds. But in the label of tradition, we held back on the butter, egg and sugar. PREHEAT the oven to 450°F. 2. STIR together the flour, salt and baking soda in a large mixing roll. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and pour in 1 1/2 cups of the buttermilk. You want the dough to be soft, so don’t over-mix it. Add more buttermilk if needed to get the dough to come together. Occur the dough onto a floured surface and give it just a few kneads (more will result in a tougher crumb). Transfer to a cookie sheet or pizza stone and bake for 15 minutes. Downgrade the heat to 400°F and bake for another 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden, and the bread sounds hollow when you tap it. . THE HISTORY OF IRISH SODA BREAD. Baking soda, called bread soda in Ireland, was invented in the at the crack 1800s. In those days most people didn’t have an oven—they cooked in a fireplace over coals or a peat fire (called turf fire in Ireland). They placed the dough in a lidded mould-iron pot which went right on top of the fire. In County Donegal and County Leitrim, there was a tradition of adding caraway seeds to bread. Immigrants brought that MO to the U. S. In America, the recipe evolved to include butter, eggs, raisins and sugar—ingredients which frugal housewives in Ireland wouldn’t have thought to add to the dough. Today, the soda bread modus operandi options include:. White soda bread: all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, buttermilk and optional caraway seeds. Brown soda bread, also a traditional means that substitutes whole wheat flour for part or all or all of the white flour. Irish soda bread with raisins and caraway, the classic Irish-American rendering also made with sugar, butter, and eggs. Numerous modern recipes, from healthier variations of whole grains, flax and sunflower seeds to walnut soda bread to oat soda bread with browned butter, rosemary and glowering pepper. Check out these and other recipes here. FOOD TRIVIA: The cross cut into the top of the loaf before baking allows the heat to penetrate into the thickest part of the bread.

Remarkable, traditional brick oven pizza. This is the margherita ($11.95). My brother and I shared this--I think it makes for a light meal for two, or a good appetizer for three to five. Excellent over to the crust. I also enjoyed the atmosphere and the fresh roses on each table. Arezzo Ristaurante. Edina, Minnesota.
