Before the Fourneau was even a sketch on a napkin, we already were obsessed with trying to make bread and pizza in the great outdoors ... as serious camping enthusiasts, one of our favorite ways to enjoy nature is to cook outside. Some folks might be content to bring the hot dogs and peanut butter, but we like to push the envelope. Several years ago, we went to a beautiful remote island and decided to build a pizza oven. Out of rocks, gravel, and sand. It worked! Here are a few photos of that adventure.

This is the recipe that got us into baking bread at home. My Dad bakes baguettes exclusively and now bakes two at a time on the Fourneau tray. A few of these are demi baguettes are always at the ready in the freezer; they reheat beautifully into extra crusty loaves that accompany any meal.
It has been known to happen that even the biggest bread enthusiasts cannot consume or give away all of the loaves that they make!
