You Don't Need An Oven To Make Beautiful Bread...

Well perhaps that's not quite true
says Stu Silverstein, aka Breadhunter.
A Dutch oven will do just fine but you'll need to be vigilant, you could reduce your wonderful loaf to a cinder in no time.
Baking bread outdoors on an open fire is fun he says on his blog here, give it a try.
Deciding against lawschool and a career with the FBI, Stu got a life and a VW bus and went in search of real bread.
Not finding what he wanted, he returned
to Maine on the East Coast of the US and
started making his own.
His world is Bread. Sourdough is his speciality.
He makes it, talks about it, writes about it.
He makes bread ovens.
Each year he travels to Guatemala to build energy efficient ovens for the Mayas.
If you like bread, you'll like Stu's...
