Thanks, Drake. Videos like these make me cognizant of just how much bread-baking knowledge I am short of and the need to catch up.

That is VERY cool. That cast iron pot business is the business. And someone should figure out how to rig a door like that for us!
I want to know if/how the baking loaves are rotated, as it seems like those at the back would end up being in for quite a bit longer. Or do you think they're all done and unloaded at once?

My thoughts exactly! I have a hard enough time moving just a few loaves around. And I hate to think of how many times I'd accidentally dump one in that pot of water

Very cool video .....

I can't remember where I read it, but he has room with 3-4 ovens made to his specifications lining the outside walls with work area in the center of the room. All of the ovens are heated from one central location.

I should go try to find that article so I am not spreading rumors.

The entire poilane bakery story is remarkable. when the company decided to expand, rather than build a bigger oven, they built 24 copies of the original paris oven -- apparently they are in a circle, and each is tended by a single baker.
