More on the mud oven - we are now making some bread to bake in it, last weeks bread turned out well, though we need to experiment with time and temperature a bit.
We are making a traditional starter to make sour dough - more on that next time. We made a traditional mud or adobe or cob oven using Kiko Denzers book, and also bought Rado's CD of pics for inspiration.
But we really wanted a weekend result - see pics of us making the oven and cooking in the oven. And we also have an extensive link list to other traditional wood fired ovens - mainly mud ovens, with technical notes about how we made it.
