Default Wood-Fired Bread Cookbook -- online

Mary G's and Forno Bravo have collaborated on a great online book (PDF) on Wood-Fired Hearth Bread. Jim has created some great material on everything from technique and temperaturers to recipes, and he tailors everything to the wood-fired oven baker.

We produced this so that is works both on-line and printed. It's a 33 page PDF document, so it might take a second to start downloading. You can either view it onine, and click to download it.

I hope you like it, and I think the information is great.

We are also in the process of putting this information into standard HTML pages that you can click through from start to finish, and has linking to related information -- similar to the Pompeii Oven instructions.

As always, let us know how we can improve the material and the presentation. I know the video links are really slow to load from the PDF, and I'm working on that.

The document is here:

Let us know what you think.
James

James,

You've turned my rather raw material into a stunning presentation. Congratulations.

that's looking really good James - now I really can't wait to get my oven done! Then I'll even try to get some hints and tips on making Maltese bread loaves - not sure if any of you have ever tasted it, but that's one of the main drivers for us to build our oven here in NZ - nothing like maltese bread to be found here!!

Thanks for the kind words. Jim and I have talked about this, and self-publishing is great. We don't have to deal with the book companies and book proposals, and we have a great audience who reads and appreciates what we do. You can't beat that.
James

Lee,

There are many terms for sourdough. The Boule au Levain recipe is just such a one. Have a look and have fun.
