Some people long for designer kitchens, with stone countertops, glazed hardwood cabinets, and a huge collection of burnished copper pots. Or a hangar-sized dining room, big enough to seat twenty, and enough sterling flatwear for the whole crowd. Or hand-forged, hideously expensive Japanese cutlery.
Not me. I want a wood-burning pizza oven. I don’t want a built-in oven–that’s sheer lunacy in our climate. What I want is a Forno Bravo Primavera beehive oven. The Primavera oven is delivered to your doorstep, fully assembled: you just need to set it in place atop the metal stand, and you can build a fire inside it immediately.
It’s a nifty way to spend $3,000, should you have it lying around to blow on culinary toys. I don’t, so I’ll have to entertain myself by scrolling through Forno Bravo’s 27-page online oven photo archive; it’s fun to see all of the outdoor oven installations around the globe.
