Customers Share Forno Bravo Wood Fired Oven Progress as Well as Healthy Cooking Passion!
It’s exciting for us to see the progress of the Forno Bravo oven projects that Jim and Tom have worked on as well as customers. It’s the owners of the ovens that have the final vision to complete! Some of the finish work and details that may be among the finish “to-do” list include counter surfaces, lighting, surrounding landscaping, furnishings, cabinetry or metal work for oven tools and other oven accessories. What can’t be shared here on a computer are the phenomenal smells and flavors. You just have to experience it! Wood-fired ovens are becoming increasingly popular and one day we hope it to be true that many more ovens will find their place in homes and yards across the country. It’s not a new idea as depicted in this old painting below. Yet, modern materials such as high temperature refractory cement and tested design forms have made Forno Bravo ovens an excellent choice as they are very efficient ovens which also translates into less wood use.
The first photo above of the brick oven was built by Jim Erskine and Tom Silver in Lenoir, NC earlier this spring. It is a solid and stately beauty and there will be some serious cooking, good humor and great fun shared by home owners David and Mary Ruth Horn. We hope to provide more details about their cooking adventures in the near future. In fact, David has been involved in a cooking show called Two Men and a Stove , Fun in the Kitchen with Dave and Ram, who refer to themselves as “chef wannabes” with a focus on healthy eating and movement for overall health. They’ve worked with the Lenoir Fire Department cooking up recipes such as firehouse grilled chicken and firehouse salsa, and much more, all benefiting their community and beyond. We’re hoping to see a wood-fired oven segment!
This next photo is an outdoor kitchen in Columbus, NC, by Glen and Marilyn Lefeber.Their oven was shipped directly to them and they were responsible for the project from the ground up.
They researched and planned their outdoor wood-fired oven area for quite some time before purchasing their Forno Bravo Casa2G oven and now the finishes are all coming together. With all this wonderful counter space they have ample serving and preparation area.
Glen has been a baker for decades and these are his first bread loaves from their oven.
We plan to share the progress of others if they can put their pizza peels down long enough to take some photos from time to time! We hope to share more images in future entries. Carry on!
