Andrea Mugnaini's Art of Wood Fired Cooking

Book Now

Our 3-day classes offer a one-of-a-kind culinary experience that exudes wine country hospitality. The school is a beautifully renovated farm house nestled in a 30 acre vineyard. The expansive patio features every size of Mugnaini pizza oven so you can hone your skills or test different sizes.

While the focus is on learning how to master your pizza oven, it is also a good time to choose an oven. You will work side-by-side with Andrea Mugnaini learning how an oven works, making dough, firing an oven, baking pizza and getting all of your questions answered.

The first night you’ll be greeted with champagne and a warm welcome from Andrea and canine co-hosts, Elle and Gemma. Make new friends as you mix with your fellow students and enjoy the property. You'll see firsthand how to cook and entertain as Andrea prepares appetizers and then dinner paired with local wines.

Each day has a complete menu to work through from appetizers to sides, mains to dessert. All cooked in a wood fired pizza oven! The techniques and skills you learn here will transform your wood fired oven experience at home!

"The value of your Mugnaini oven lies in its versatility. Our objective is to teach you to use your oven to its full potential and create entertaining menus from appetizers to desserts."
