Brick Ovens without Boundaries #2


  As I go into my fourth year of building and baking in brick ovens,  I am seeking to expand the conventional North American conception that brick ovens are for pizza (a bit ironic).
 

This YouTube has captured, in detail, the Turkish use of brick ovens.  Remarkably and sadly, the narrative suggests that if Turkey joins the European Union, wood-fired brick ovens will be prohibited.
With the upsurge of interest in wood-fired brick ovens in the U.S. it really flips the world upside-down to shut down traditional bakeries in European Union member states.
