So for the last few weeks I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of some very expensive parts from the Blodgett pizza oven factory in Boulder, Colorado. The parts are inexpensive compared to the cost of a brand new oven which usually range between 13 to 37 thousand dollars. You see our pizza oven has faithfully produced a flame for 19 years until a few weeks ago. Interestingly enough one of our ovens and our dough mixer survived a fire in the year 2000 at the Naramata Bistro which is now known as the Nevermatter Cafe and was of course the original location of Real Things Pizza. The following photos document the journey and I can now sleep through the night without the worry of fire.
