Rachel Allen Recommends - Sunday Independent (10th April 2016)

Original ArticleAn outdoor wood-burning oven is at the top of my wish list, as I imagine lots of sunny days and balmy evenings sitting outside, eating everything from pizza to slow-roast pork. There are now some really good outdoor wood-burning ovens on the market (which can get so hot that your pizzas cook in just two minutes), many of which are delivered in pieces for you (or your friendly builder!) to assemble. One such oven is that by WoodFireLand. A girl can dream... WoodFireLand, Crosspatrick, Kilmeague, Naas, Co Kildare, or see

GETTING ALL FIRED UP FOR VALORIANI - The Irish Times (25th June 2016)

It was a batch of perfectly pale meringues coming out of the type of oven you would associate with charred meat and blistered pizzas that brought Valoriani wood-fired ovens to my attention.
Peter Cashell of Wood Fire Land, who imports the Tuscan ovens, describes them as “a professional quality wood-fired oven in a domestically friendly format”. They are expensive; the entry model Baby Valoriani costs from €2,495 including delivery, but they can be installed indoors as well as outdoors. Cooking with fire is a big trend at the moment, but it has to be learned. “Practice makes perfect,” Cashell says, advising buyers to explore cooking at various temperatures, “from the screaming heat and rolling flame required for top-notch pizzas, to the last vestiges of stored heat hours later for those meringues”. Once you’ve finished cooking, “sling in a joint of seasoned meat for melt-in-the mouth deliciousness the following day”. Wood Fire Land can also supply seasoned ash, beach, birch, oak and fruit woods, “never softwood like pine as it sparks and has a resinous content which imparts an acrid aroma and flavour”. Gas-fired models are also available. You can check them out at, and Avoca in Rath- coole and Kilmacanogue.
