If your tastes run more toward goat cheese pizza than hot dogs and burgers, you can prepare your favorite artisanal pies at your next backyard event with Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet's Artisan Pizza Oven. It premiered at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas last week to rave reviews, despite the $4,000 price tag. Extra anchovies, please.
"Ovens lined with stone and topped by an arched roof are found across Italy for baking pizza and bread. Why? The stone delivers superior heat transfer characteristics and the low, arched top reflects radiant heat back to the pizza for even baking from both the top and bottom."
Implications - The cuisine industry has seen a major increase in popularity recently, with average consumers looking to put a gourmet twist on their everyday eating habits.
