In case you haven’t seen one in some of the tip-top kitchens around the county (both commercial and residential), the thing about these ovens is that these brick ovens are specifically made to heat up quickly (room temp to 1,000 degrees in under an hour), provide convection heating via its dome and generally make perfect Neopolitan-style pizzas, long with other wood-fired dishes in the tradition of our ancestors.

The new 15,000 square-food Mugnaini building is a combination pizza oven showroom, cooking school, retail store and production facility. And here’s where it gets really cool (if you have some serious dough): Three day Wine Country Culinary Getaways are held at owner Andrea Mugnaini’s nearby vineyard property.

That’s three days of serious oven training to make bread, fish, meats, veggies and of course pizzas. There’s also a week-long cooking school in Tuscany. Sigh.

Mugnaini, 1531 Grove St., Healdsburg, (707) 416-4106.

  1. Was there an EIR made before this was approved? 1000 degrees? Who needs co2. This oven will raise the ambient temperature and cause the oceans to rise. You’ll be eating your pizzas with water rising over your shoes.

    And is this a solar oven? I ask because if it fueled by natural gas or wood it will pollute the air.

  2. A fair assessment. It’s not sponsored, but I am a huge fan of their ovens. I didn’t see much other coverage of the move, and wanted to at least note it.

    If you’re not a regular on biteclub, you might notice that I write with a point of view — more like a columnist than a reporter. If I wasn’t a fan (note, I could never actually afford one), I wouldn’t have written about it.

    We do have plenty of sponsored content on Pressdemocrat.com now. This just isn’t it.
