Purpose of this blog

This blog will really be a true web log. I will post here about different wood-fired ovens as I find them.

If you know of any wood-fired ovens I should know about, you can send an e-mail to me. (If you build wood-fired ovens, I would like to hear from you too.)

There will lots of posts and lots of labels, since I plan to create one post for every appropriate web site that I find, and however many labels it takes to describe each one (usually at least the type of page and the location of the oven).

The accumulated information will still be found at the real Quest for Ovens web site links pages, but that is not updated as frequently as this blog will be.

If you are from outside the US and Canada, let me know what you find interesting about it. I see that I get visitors from India and Iran, and other faraway places. I'd like to know what draws you to this blog.

I received e-mail from the organizers of the BBC Two television show asking if the Saint Paul Bread Club could post a notice about their show Great British Bake-Off for amateur bakers. The information they gave me is now accessible through a link. (The organizers don't have a web page for the show itself yet.)

Please share this with any amateur bakers in Great Britain you may know, or post the link where they might see it.

Grana, Riverhead, New York

There is a restaurant review of Grana, which does not seem to have a site of its own.

It's not clear if it is in Riverhead or Jamesport, New York.

The review says in part, "And last, but not least, is the wood-fired oven pizza staring customers in the face on the far side of the open kitchen upon entering Grana. The clay composing the interior of the oven was imported from Tuscany, Plath boasts, and the oven itself is instrumental in giving Grana's pizzas a unique taste the chef took years to fashion. Indeed, before building an oven in Grana's kitchen, Plath honed his pizza-making skills at home in his own wood oven – which cooks around 700 degrees – for years."
