The piece says in closing, "Naan bread, African food and French crepes will be cooked in the community oven."
The oven was built as a multicultural artifact, bringing together Australian and immigrant cultures.
Previous pages that I found point to the community oven at Dufferin Grove Park in Toronto, Canada as its likely inspiration:
"The idea came from Albury City Council's cultural development officer Narelle Vogel, who saw a picture on a Canadian website and said, 'I want one of these for Albury'," says project co-ordinator Chelsea McLaren from Hume Murray Food Bowl, a group representing and promoting local food and wine producers.The oven has been mentioned previously in The Border Mail (here), and has also been cited as one of the area's attractions.
This page seems to be from a neglected site, but it says about the community oven, "Community Wood Fired Oven: Heading down to the community’s centre, check out what’s on exhibit at the Library Museum or savour the delicate flavours of your meal cooked in the community wood fired oven." The content seems to be the same as on another travel site's page.
Nice to see the Albury oven get such use.
I do have a set of links that I collected about this oven here.
10/26/11: I received an e-mail from Narelle Vogel with the 2011 brochure for the community oven. (I am working on getting permission to make it available for downloading or linking to it on the Albury web site.)
