Andrea Mugnaini has spent more than 20 years perfecting the craft of wood-fired cooking. She started Mugnaini Imports in 1989 to bring the Italian style of cooking and living to America through wood-fired, pizza-oven sales. A pioneer of the industry, she founded the first cooking school dedicated to wood-fired cooking. When she is not teaching or in the office, Mugnaini entertains crowds in the Sonoma Wine Country with her live, interactive cooking events. Now she shares the methods she has been teaching through her classes, sharing delicious recipes for pizzas, breads, fish, poultry, meats, vegetables, pastas, and desserts.
