Michael Gerard is the man behind Cooking With Wood, and his innovative wood fired cooking products, not to mention the famous dough behind every pizza.


Michael's family had an urban farm at their Los Angeles home where they grew what they ate, kept chickens, bees, and picked and canned their own produce.  “Long before this was a trend, this is how we lived.

I learned how to harvest eggs, dispatch chickens, and extract honey from our bee hives. Growing food was everything to my dad, who after working 12 hour days, would go home and work in the garden."


Michael is a proponent of sustainable food production and the farm to table movement. His teaching style takes a less is more approach. "Most of the time I cook with 4 ingredients or less, but I dig deep into these ingredients: local organic vegetables, estate olive oils, the finest spices, you get the picture. In the classes

I adapt classic culinary techniques to the wood fired oven.


Since 2002 Wildwood Ovens has received accolades from chefs worldwide for their impressive products and performance  performance. In 2015 we launched the Dual Fuel Yakitori BBQ. 3 star Michelin Chef, Cesar Ramirez, has 2 custom Yakitori BBQs in his NYC restaurants. "I love our newest grill! You have really outdone yourself!” he shared. We couldn't be more proud!
