Mugnaini (founder, Mugnaini Wood-Fired Cooking School) opens her first cookbook with essentials for starting and working a pizza oven fire, oven temperatures, and cookware. The pizza section features instructions and illustrations for making the dough and baking. Writing for beginners, Mugnaini includes a wide variety of recipes: e.g., Braised Lamb Shanks al Forno and Wood-Roasted Corn-on-the-Cob. For readers with a wood-burning oven, these recipes are perfect for all occasions. (Library Journal 2010-06-15)

From the Inside Flap

The Art of Wood Fired Cooking is filled with instructional information on how to properly fire a pizza oven so anyone can create and enjoy mouthwatering wood fired dishes at home.

Andrea Mugnaini shares the method of wood fired cooking she has perfected over the last twenty years for her cooking school, as well as many delightful recipes for pizzas, breads, fish, poultry, meats, vegetables, pastas, and desserts―all of which are absolutely delicious. Now you can fire up the oven and enjoy Wood-Roasted Butterflied Shrimp, Zucchini Gratin with Tomatoes and Fresh Savory, Tuscan Style Pot Roast with Herbs and Chianti, Focaccia with Onions and Thyme, and Limoncello Bread Pudding with Fresh Blackberries. When cooking with fire at home, the possibilities are endless!

Andrea Mugnaini started Mugnaini Imports in 1989 to bring the Italian style of cooking and living to America through wood fired pizza oven sales. A pioneer of the industry, Andrea founded the first school dedicated to wood fired cooking. When she is not teaching or in the office, Andrea entertains crowds in the Sonoma Wine Country with her interactive cooking events.

I finished building my wood fired oven this summer and have been exploring the limited books written on using them. I've bought or borrowed every book I can find on the topic and this one's the best. From starting a fire, heating the oven, to the excellent recipes, this book explains how to use the oven in careful and easy to follow instructions. Explains the various levels of fire/ heat and their uses. Best explanation of how to pull a pizza dough of any of the multiple WFO and pizza books I've read. Great variety of recipes to get you started.
If you've invested in a wood fired oven, you're obviously going to want a few books on how to use it. Be sure to include this one.

This is the best woodfired oven cookbook we have found! We have tried 5 recipes besides pizza so far and everyone has been a total success. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and turn out perfectly each time. The overview of how the oven works and how to build and maintain different types of fires is terrific. I would highly reccomend it to anyone. The Lemoncello bread pudding is over the top good!

This is a wonderful book! The pictures are enticing. The general information about using a wood burning oven are detailed and easy to follow and SUCCESSFUL-a practical and artful approach. The recipes are consistently exceptional yet never too difficult to deter us from making the effort. I highly recommend this book. We have had it just a short time, yet continue to make our way through this delightful collection of recipes. Ms. Mugaini is the Alice Waters of Wood Fired Cooking! Looking forward to book 2.

A gifted chef and visionary entrepreneur, Andrea Mugnaini has provided an exceptional resource for those of us lucky enough to have discovered the joys of wood fired cooking. I have watched her in her culinary school and her love for these magnificent ovens is clearly evident as she elevates something as primal as wood and fire and food to a delectable art form. You will benefit from the years of wisdom compressed into this beautiful book and, if you don't already own a Mugnaini Oven, will be tantalized to the point where investing in one for yourself is the only sensible choice. It happened to me and my family and I love our oven and the memories we share around it!

I'm an amateur griller and smoker with a love of cooking for friends and family. We purchased a wood fired oven from Andrea Mugnaini and this added a whole new dimension to this passion. I've personally tried almost all of the recipes in the book and can't say enough about the quality of direction provided. It is the complete guide to operating the oven and cooking each recipe to perfection. One recipe that is a repeated tradition in our family is the preparation of the entire Thanksgiving dinner utilizing the oven. If you own an oven or are considering purchasing one, then this is the must have book for the shelf. Last, Andrea Mugnaini is a terrific teacher and narrator allowing amateurs like myself to prepare gourmet delicious meals. J. Noblin, Larkspur/Healdsburg, CA.
