1 . Have two kinds of fun
Posted May 15, 2013 by Dr Bob Rich , Healesville, Victoria, AustraliaThis delightful little e-book is a good recipe for two kinds of fun: building a dome oven, and cooking in it. As you read, you can hear Gavin chatting to you about it, explaining things in simple, no nonsense terms.
The illustrative photographs make the book easy to use.
The step by step instructions are meticulously thought out and clearly presented. I wish I had instructions this detailed for building my first house!
His choice of materials and techniques were environmentally sound. For example, he used clay dug out from his own soil (during the construction of Cluckingham Palace, the place for the chooks), and when he could, he got free or second hand bricks and things. This is a good example to follow.
I approve of a lifestyle of doing things for yourself, living a varied, full life instead of the one-dimensional existence most people unthinkingly follow. Although building an oven in your backyard may superficially seem like a luxury, it is not. It is part of returning to the meaningful, enjoyable way of doing things humans evolved to do.
