Peter says

The ability to truly ‘see’ rather than merely look is acquired with diligence and is not rewarded without some amount of sustained application. A seasoned and informed recognition of the nuances and subtleties of wood fired characteristics is akin to the sophistication of a developed epicurean palate. Whilst ‘taste’ can be vehemently subjective, truly qualified appreciation must be based on experimental engagement, otherwise the local burger flipper would be writing restaurant reviews for The Age. Development of more than a superficial ‘wood-fire’ aesthetic is something which, like the process itself, can be absorbed but only partially understood over a very long period of time. Patience really can be its own reward.
