Thank you so very much. It's really interesting for me, and encouraging to see so many folks from so many different countries tuning into the show. We've had folks from Brazil, we've had folks from London, from Canada, executive chefs who are about to launch restaurants. It is really exciting. What I wanted to talk about today is I want to give you the opportunity to book a slot on the podcast and come on the show. This show is in part sharing my journey with my wood-fired oven, but more importantly, it's about talking and chatting and getting to know you are the folk out there who have a passion and a story to tell about your cooking with fire journey about your journey, learning to use your wood-fired oven, and that applies whether you're doing it at home, whether you are an executive chef, whether you're a pizzaiolo, whether you just love doing it in your backyard.

A couple of things to think about if you'd like to come on the podcast, have a think through whether you're comfortable with the sound of your own voice, whether you're a good communicator, perhaps you're a great storyteller. You might be funny. You might be introspective. You might be thought provoking. What's really important is that you have a unique point of view with cooking with fire, which I bet is almost everybody on the planet. So head on over to the guest page and send me an email and let me know why you'd like to come on the show.

Mark (02:50):
I've got great interviews now booked up for the next three or four months. I've opened a whole bunch more slots and I'd really, really like to hear from you. So if you're an executive chef about to launch a restaurant, if you're somebody in Brazil who loves making wood-fired ovens, if you're in London and you just want to learn more about how to use your oven, get in touch with me. Let's talk about your story. Let's share that with others in the same boat, it would be fantastic to touch base with you and book you on the podcast. I'd love to hear from home cooks. I'd love to hear from chefs, from new chefs, from experienced chefs. It doesn't matter if you're writing a book. If you've written a book on cooking with fire, get in touch with me. Let's have a chat on the show. Also, if you know somebody who might like to come on the show, please share this podcast and the website woodfiredoven.cooking with them so they can get in touch with me as well.

And, for those of you who have sent through your pictures of your oven, I'm just blown away by your creativity, by what you're doing out there in the wood-fired oven world. Thank you so much just as I was going to air, I got an email in from Barry. Barry's in Canada. Barry, the pictures of your wood-fired oven that you are just finishing up, absolutely blew me away. The craftsmanship involved in that, the wonderful story that you shared with me about that oven and how you are using that oven to honour somebody important to you. What a great story, what an absolutely fantastic thing to do. I bet you're going to really enjoy using your wood-fired oven for many, many years to come. So if you've got a great story, if you've got pictures of your wood fire oven that you'd like to share with me, get in touch with me.

I purchased my wood-fired oven, my D105 off Ben a couple of years ago and it is a real privilege to have Ben come on the podcast. Like we've done with Clive, I would like to give you the wonderful listeners out there, the opportunity to ask Ben some questions about the wood-fired ovens that they sell.

So get those questions in, it's going to be a fabulous show.

Mark (06:10):

So stay tuned for a couple of weeks when I'll be releasing the names of that wonderful guests.
