The ultimate project for the DIY cook and baker: an oven in your own back yard. Pizza cooks faster and is more tender, bread crusts as it's never crusted before. The anticipation prompted by the smoking chimney is indescribable, the results without peer. This little book tells how to build a outdoor brick oven from scratch, with working drawings; and how to restore an existing oven if your house is so lucky to possess one. There is guidance in firing and running the oven, and some recipes for good measure.
