Inspired by customers' comments on the brick oven he keeps at his restaurant in Australia, Jeavons has written a book that demonstrates how readers can build a similar oven themselves. The instructions are pretty basic and include variations catering to different people's needs and numerous line drawings. Jeavons's passion for baking is infectious; he even shares some of his favorite recipes to help readers get the feel of their new ovens. There's just one drawback: the book was not edited for an American audience; measurements are all in metric, with incomplete conversion charts. Much more lightweight than Daniel Wing and Alan Scott's The Bread Builders, this is recommended for larger public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
