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.

Pesto Brothers, Flagstaff, Arizona

Just because I'm feeling cranky, here is an example of a way to fail at communicating.

My Google Alert sent me the link to a blog post that announced, "We have started building our Wood Fired Pizza oven!" This is apparently for a restaurant named "Pesto Brothers."

OK. Fine. Where are they located? They don't really say on the blog post.

Going to their home page, they list a street address (2500 Woodlands Village Dr), but don't provide a city or state. They provide a phone number (with area code), but unless you have the area code map memorized, that's not a great help. Under Places to Visit, they do mention Grand Canyon tours and Flavors of Flagstaff, so it does appear that they are in Flagstaff. It would have been nice just to be told. Grumble.

  1. That sounds pretty typical for a lot businesses just making a web presence known. They tend to forget the WHOLE WORLD can view the page and forget that just because THEY know where they are doesn't mean the rest of us do.
