Adobe ovens photos; Bread, flour, oven talks


Location, location, location. The ovens were on the ground... or on a building... or in a building... or on wheels (apologies to Dr. Seuss). Next week will be a talk baking in an adobe horno! Two talks are by bakers who use clay ovens, one portable on wheels. Below the pictures are talks on breads, flour and a very good talk on the history of making salt in Scotland and England.

There are many pictures of adobe ovens with slightly different styles, and much more info about adobe/clay ovens, (for later posts) but this post is just about... locations...to leave room for the virtual talks.
On the ground.
