Chef: Oysters from the wooden range

Chef: Oysters from the wood stove

Dan Bavaro from Bavaro’s Pizza is a stickler when it comes to his special pizza ovens – all the way to Napoli.

But he defies the tradition of the pizzaioli, the always male commanders of the pizza oven. Two pizza-over chefs helped us make the Wood Fired Oysters for the chef’s kitchen. Two female pizza chefs – Jamie Kraus and Morgan Lynch.

Wood-fired oysters

12 oysters peeled on the half-shell

½ pound of unsalted butter is softened

½ bunch of parsley, finely chopped

½ tbsp. Chopped garlic

½ c. Reggiano cheese

¼ c. Rendered bacon

Sprinkle the parmesan over the oysters.

Beat up everything except the parmesan in a blender or food processor.

Place a spoonful of butter mixture on the oysters and top with parmesan.

Roast in the oven on a baking sheet until the cheese bubbled and browned just enough.
