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.

Jack's Wood-Fired Oven, Logan, Utah

My Google Alert spotted an extremely short item from the on-line version of Salt Lake Magazine, about Jack's Wood-Fired Oven, Logan, Utah.

The item is so short, I will quote most of what it says, "Wood-fired ovens are taking over the world, and it's about time. This low-key little place looks like any mom & pop's pizzeria, except for the oven dominating one end of the room."

(Jack's web site could use more than a bit of editing.)

PaneVino Wood Fired Pizzeria, Allen, Texas

Sometimes a place with wood-fired pizza gets good reviews. But, sometimes they don't.

A site called Pegasus News, News and Entertainment for DFW (probably meaning Dallas/Fort Worth), had a review that pretty much panned PaneVino Wood Fired Pizzeria, Allen, Texas.

The review says in part, "Fancy domed oven does not guarantee good pizza." (The domed oven comes from Renato, which is in Garland, Texas.)

If you visit this place yourself, let me know if you agree with the reviewer.
