Hey, it’s summer. I need to be sharing more photos of some of the fun stuff I’ve been doing in my ovens. Yes, I have yet another prototype for a potential new oven, and it’s been a lot of fun getting to know a new oven. It’s too early to say anything about the oven itself, but I’m getting quite a little collection here!
One funny side note. We live close to the Pacific, and summer is our bad time of year. It’s hot inland, which draws in the coastal fog — so we sit in a fog bank for much of July and August, with highs in the high 50s to low 60s. It’s pretty funky.
Still, I get out and make bread often and we still do a lot of grilling. Tonight? Steaks and broccoli on a Tuscan grill. You can’t beat the flavor and smoke from real wood coals. I parboiled the broccoli, and then put it on the grill with an olive oil dressing to concentrate the flavors.
