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.

Fol Epi, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

I found a blog post that mentioned several businesses with wood-burning ovens on (or near) Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

Posts like this are valuable to me because the identify several places at once, although they are also something of a burden for the same reason.

There was a very bare mention of Fol Epi.

All I could find was a mention in the on-line version of Vancouver Magazine: 
Artisan baker Cliff Leir moved lock and stock to bare all in his brand-new digs at uber-green Dockside Green. The wheat silo and hand-built wheat grinder are in place and the au natural d├ęcor of salvaged fir, brick, and rock is a fitting tribute to the earthy delights on the rise. Boule, baguettes, whole wheat, and pumpernickel are the daily wood-fired breads, while all-butter croissants, organic pain au chocolat and fruit Danish, and morish schneckens—a swirl of pastry with raisins and a slathering of Grand Fir syrup—give reason to wake up in the morning.

(The "bare all" looks like a typo, to me. Nude bakers are rather rare.)
