Baking bread in your own oven
Many people find it important to take time to eat together. They appreciate the ingredients and have fun preparing their own meals. It is always important to have good quality food and to make something yourself. Cooking together slows down everyday life, brings variety and strengthens the sense for each other. If we want to take something positive from the Corona crisis, it may be that it gives us the opportunity to cook together and spend time with our immediate family. Homemade bread also stays fresh much longer because of the natural ingredients. And on top of that, the self-baked bread saves you a trip to the bakery.
We rent wood-burning ovens for this purpose, which can be ordered, paid for and collected from us contactless. Maybe one or the other has desire to try it once! Here's all the info on it >>
Baking bread is just one of the current trends. The best way to do it is in a wood-fired oven. The ovens are characterized by the fact that they are directly fired with wood. This means that the bread sits in the oven and takes on the unique wood-fired taste. Perfect for a quick snack. But what makes a good wood oven?
First and foremost, a wood oven depends on the shape and insulation. In a wood-burning oven with a dome shape, the air circulates in a unique way and guarantees a good burning of the wood. The insulation then ensures that the heat generated in the oven is also kept in it. And this is how you can tell the quality of a good stove. How long it can maintain the temperature without being permanently fired with a large flame is what makes a good wood-burning oven. It is its intrinsic value, so to speak. This includes the material of the floor inside the wood-burning oven, which in the case of Valoriani and Fontana ovens is made of food-grade fireclay. Whether the oven is fired directly or indirectly, plays no major role, the temperature must be right.
The perfect dough
The wood-burning oven itself is already half the battle for a successful bread. But of course, the dough also plays a decisive role. The great advantage is that the homemade bread dough contains only a few ingredients, and especially as bread dough for allergy sufferers can be prepared individually. However, a kneading machine is an advantage. It also goes by hand, then the ideal value of the bread increases, but we would recommend a Bernardi dough kneading machine.
