As it turns out, there’s a big need for no-knead bread.
Kerry and Nick’s friends, Tam and Cordy, recently built this outdoor, wood-fired oven. And, as it turns out, this little hothouse has been the perfect place to bake Georgie’s no-knead bread. Not just one loaf but a baker’s dozen (perhaps even more). Cordy has been experimenting with various flours to see if there really is a taste difference. First-up he tried plain flour, followed by ’00′ flour, a combination of ’00′ and rye then finally bakers’ flour. And as Georgie predicted, the bakers’ flour triumphed. It gave the no-knead bread just that little extra ‘oomph’. As for the oven, Kerry and Nick are absolutely envious and hope to build one just like it for The Menagerie. If you have any outdoor oven pics, we’d love to see them.
