Kiko Denzer and Hannah Field, maker and baker, invite you into the artisan tradition. First, build a masonry oven out of mud. Then mix flour and water for real bread - better than anything you can buy. Total cost? Hardly more than that of a baking stone - and the earth oven can cook everything else, from 2-minute pizza to holiday fowl, or a week's meals. Clear, abundant drawings and photos clarify every step of the process, from making 'oven mud', to making fire, and to baking bread. The informative text puts everything into context with artisan traditions of many ages & cultures. Beautifully sculpted ovens (by the author and readers) will inspire the artist in anyone. And the simple, 4-step recipe (based on professional and homestead experience) promises authentic hearth loaves for anyone, on any schedule. * updated, expanded, re-written & revised * foreword by Alan Scott, the grandfather of wood-fired ovens and artisan bread. * super-insulated oven design holds heat longer with less wood burned. *8 pages of colour photos. Plus: mobile ovens, rocket mass heaters for the home, hay-box cookers and more.
