I continue to be amazed at bakers who can make bread stuffs in a wood fired oven. We have our fancy electric oven with temperature settings and a timer but still find it difficult to bake things just right. Maybe when we start baking every day for many years, that will change !

I cheat and use a breadmaker. The bread was cooked earlier and they had to stoke it up for the pizzas. We bought a brioche that was just perfect but quite a few of them had a “coup de feu”!
