Wood Burning Ovens Warm You This Holiday Season

This is the time of the year when family, friends and business assoicates get togethet to celebrate the holidays. Have you ever noticed how people tend to congregate in the kitchen for a period of time during the festive occasions? In my home my guests and I usually start out in the kitchen and move from room to room as the evening progresses. The family room, living room, dining room and outdoor rooms all receive equal attention, however, I do believe that the kitchen somehow seems to have the most amount of people congregating together. For this reason, having an outdoor kitchen in your outdoor living space is a terrific idea. One of my favorite features is the brick oven. Everyone loves pizza and if you haven’t had the opportunity to taste a brick oven pizza then you are missing out. They are some of the best and certainly my favorite. They remind me of the pizza in Tuscany and Umbria, Italy.

The Harmony Outdoor Living company sells a number of outdoor brick pizza ovens. This one is called the  Tuscany Brick Oven and is an extraordinary fusion of tumbled Brussels Dimensional Stone and the celebrated Copthorne.

Harmony Outdoor Living teams with the Chicago Brick Oven company to offer authentic old world style wood fire cooking. Just as in Tuscany and all over Italy, you begin by heating the coals. When they are nice and hot, you simply push them aside to cook pizza, bread, and many other delicious foods.

Standing around a wood burning oven, sipping wine and conversing with friends, family or business associates is a time that will be remembered and cherished for years to come. Even in the cooler temps, these wood burning ovens will warm you up.
