Inside This Issue

This issue’s features look at cheese, pizza bases and ovens. We also offer some important advice from the Metropolitan Police when it comes to delivery driver safety. Our regular ‘wood fired oven guru’, Jay Emery, also reminds us of the importance of ensuring that such a pizza oven is a DEFRA-approved one if you’re operating in an ultra-low emission zone.
