Purpose of this blog

This blog will really be a true web log. I will post here about different wood-fired ovens as I find them.

If you know of any wood-fired ovens I should know about, you can send an e-mail to me. (If you build wood-fired ovens, I would like to hear from you too.)

There will lots of posts and lots of labels, since I plan to create one post for every appropriate web site that I find, and however many labels it takes to describe each one (usually at least the type of page and the location of the oven).

The accumulated information will still be found at the real Quest for Ovens web site links pages, but that is not updated as frequently as this blog will be.

If you are from outside the US and Canada, let me know what you find interesting about it. I see that I get visitors from India and Iran, and other faraway places. I'd like to know what draws you to this blog.

I received e-mail from the organizers of the BBC Two television show asking if the Saint Paul Bread Club could post a notice about their show Great British Bake-Off for amateur bakers. The information they gave me is now accessible through a link. (The organizers don't have a web page for the show itself yet.)

Please share this with any amateur bakers in Great Britain you may know, or post the link where they might see it.

Farm to Hearth Wood Fired Bakery, Salem, Connecticut

My Google Alert lucked out for me again. I found an on-line news item about a bakery I had never heard of, Farm to Hearth Wood Fired Bakery, Salem, Connecticut. (I didn't even know Connecticut had a Salem.)

I couldn't find a web site for the business.

The article says, in part:
When he was 16 or 17 years old, Todd Solek built an earthenware oven in his parents' backyard.
"I fired it up, and it didn’t fall apart, so I started baking bread in it," he said. And now, at age 32, Solek has channeled this early passion for bread-making into his unique new business, Farm to Hearth Wood Fired Bakery, located at 26 New London Road in Salem.
This bakery sounds like one I would like to frequent.
