  • Wood fired cookng school

    Has anyone here ever attended a wood fired cooking school in Northern California?

    I checked the cooking tab here on Forno Bravo and I found the Forno Rustica site. I e-mailed her to see if she was still in business, but I have not heard back yet (Not complaining, it's been about 20 minutes). She says that she will travel to your house to teach a class or teach at her location (not sure where that is).

    The Mugnaini classes are insanely expensive ($1995 per person for a three day class, so that is a non starter for me.

    I have had my oven for about two years now and I have gotten pretty good at pizza, but I would like to get better at other foods.

    If Forno Rustica is still in business, is there anyone here that would share the cost of a class if I brought her to my location (Brentwood in Northern California)?

    Ok, I heard back from Forno Rustica and she has moved to New York, so that is off the table......

    That brings us back to the first question I guess......

    Any good schools out there?

      Can't really be of too much help in directing you to a wood fired cooking school in California, as I am from Ohio. I can however, recommend a very good book. It is called "From the Wood Fired Oven" and is written by Richard Miscovich. I would highly recommend it.

          Attend the international pizza expo in Las Vegas (sometime in March I think) I attended two years and found it very helpful. You need to pretend to have a pizza place or be in the planning stage but just get some cards made up and you will be accepted. No background check.

          My cards say Wood Chip Pizza.

            Cool, I may give that a try, Vegas is pretty close to me and I'm always up for an excuse to go there.....

              Hello David

              The Oven is very versatile and forgiving so just experiment.

              I have found it was a good idea to record my oven temperature over several days so I would have some idea when I could do Bread, roast or spare ribs.

              I made a spread sheet to log my temperature.
