Chef Gabriel of Sequim's Alder Wood Bistro has always had a flair for wood-fired Northwest Cuisine. All you have to do is step into his restaurant and smell the YUM!
In his spare time, (insert sarcasm here), Gabriel is building a mobile pizza oven!
The pizza "stones" are so big they needed to be cast into 4 quarter-slabs, and kiln dried at 1000+ degrees Fahrenheit for 2 hours in order to strengthen the refractory concrete.
The pizza oven's dome roof is upcycled from an old propane tank!
But the creatively doesn't stop there.
With big collaborative thanks to John Pabst of Pacific Pantry for smoking and stuffing the house pepperoni made with Short's grass-fed beef, Nash's pork, star anise, fennel & anise seed and three kinds of chili pepper.
Gabriel and Jessica Schuenemann love creating delicious food for Alder Wood Bistro guests that is grown, raised and prepared with love from members of their community.
Thanks to everyone who helps make the Olympic Culinary Loop and the whole Olympic Peninsula such a delicious place!
They hope to see you soon!
