Why bake ovens? Over the years, CELOS has found that these small brick or cob structures bring forth delicious pizzas, bread, and new friendships. They are also a magnet for stories of distant places, for community gatherings, and regulations. The following sections present the stories, photos, journal entries, newspaper articles, policies, and other documents that CELOS has collected about bake ovens.
Thank you for sending me the responses to my oven questions. Last night I forwarded your e-mail to the oven users who were copied on my original questions, and I got corrections from three people this morning. The corrections are in red, in the attachment called "Kelvin Seow reply."
As a summary, two main concerns:
1. there are important factual differences between the responses in your e-mail and the accounts of the people who actually got the ovens built and use them 2. the process of non-consultative policy development or review by PFR staff, re the ovens, is evidently going on as before, now in its third year: Draft policy.
Yo Utano is the Dufferin Grove guest baker, hoping to bake for one day at each Toronto bake oven before the year is out. The first guest gig is on Dec.4, at Riverdale Farm, for their annual "Home for the Holidays" event. Yo will be the baking assistant to Jeff Connell, and there's a preparatory meeting at Jeff's new restaurant, The Woodlot.
