The weather has turned hot again and I finally got round to firing my beehive to make bread again. M wife planned a menu of Otah, roast chicken, cream of asparagus soup, sweet potatoes and a beef stew to be slow cooked for tomorrow's breakfast.
I had intended to make fougasse today but ended up making 2 batards, 2 fougasses and a ciabatta. I started the fire at about 4 pm and after 3o minutes of fanning, the sloth in me decided that enough was enough and I brought out an electric fan to blow air into the beehive oven. It certainly worked better than my manual fanning.
