Bread Ovens Of Quebec Now Available Online

I’m interested in homemade, wood fired ovens, as well as community baking. I’ve read a few books on these topics, and one that I always wanted to get a copy of was called The Bread Ovens Of Quebec. I’ve looked for a reasonably-priced copy for years with no luck. But I just learned that the whole book is available online now for free as a downloadable pdf.  Here’s the link:

The book is about the traditional outdoor ovens built by french settlers in Quebec and the culture around them. It is broken into four sections:

  1. The Ovens
  2. Building An Oven
  3. The Bread
  4. The Oral Tradition

If you share an interest in homemade ovens and breads, it’s worth a look. You won’t find it cheaper than 100% off!

We’ve been planning a bread oven at the field school for a few years. We do a lot of baking in reflector, Dutch, solar and wood fired ovens, but I’ve always thought a large oven to make a week’s worth of bread in a single firing would be a great addition. After reading this book, maybe next year will be the year.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
