Harvest and Hearth Knows Artisan Pizza

Recently received this nice update from our friends at Harvest and Hearth restaurant in Saratoga Springs, NY. There’s nothing more fulfilling than being part of our client’s success stories…

“…We’re in our fourth year now, and business is great. We mostly use the oven for our artisan wood fired pizza, but also utilize the oven to fire roast a number of ingredients for our homemade soups and special salads. The oven (as you may know) sits prominently at the ...

Extraordinary Wood Fired Pizza

I read an article first thing this morning by celebrity chef Todd Fisher, Fire up a Meal for your Inner Caveman. He declares,

“Wood fired cooking is unique unto each oven and each chef. It is the chef who creates stimulating and inspired creations, who must perfectly execute the technique, but it is the oven that exquisitely cooks and accentuates the chosen ingredients.”

I couldn’t explain this dynamic more perfectly. Todd then writes,

“I believe there is ...

Love & a Le Panyol

I hope we are able to share more testimonials like this one in 2012. Thanks to our clients, Jen & Dave, for sharing their story…

Upon our arrival in Napa we stopped into a winery along the route (honestly, because I was dying to use the restroom). The ...

Wood-Fired Macaroni & Cheese

It’s Friday afternoon, on the eve of Christmas Eve, and I’m beginning to write this blog with an extremely full tummy. I’m moving a bit slower than normal, but want to share my latest wood fired baking experience with you before the weekend.

To celebrate the holiday, I was given free reign to try something different in our wood fired oven. I chose a new twist on an old favorite, Macaroni & Cheese – wood-fired style. First, I have to give ...

Steaks on the Hearth

With our newly installed model 83 Le Panyol wood fired oven here at the shop, the Maine Wood Heat staff is fortunate enough to fire the oven and cook whenever we want. We are a lucky bunch. Last week, I brought in some grass-fed beef raised on my farm to cook on the hearth. I have cooked pizzas and roasted veggies, but I had never cooked steaks. My mouth was watering at the opportunity.

The oven had ...

Jubinsky’s Among Top 10 Bakers in America

Last Spring, I learned how to make wood fired artisan French bread from Michael & Sandy Jubinsky at their school, Stone Turtle Baking & Cooking, in Lyman, Maine. In the first few minutes of class, it was clear I was in the company of not only great knowledge and skill, but also great love. Michael and Sandy were clearly passionate about the art and science of baking, and of each other. They worked together seamlessly, as if extensions of one ...
