Oven Building In Eden

Weight: 
0

Once upon a time when only rich men could afford an oven and the space to house it, the poor shared an oven between the villagers. It would be lit once aweek and every household would take their bread to be baked in it, much like as still happens in poor countries today. The bread would be followed by casseroles or joints of meat and as the oven heat declined, cakes would follow and finally, in the gentle slow lowering of temperature, meringues and cheesecake would gently bake.

This worked well with economical use of fuel resources.
