BREAD OVEN "PANI CANTO" CHEZ AUDREY ET JULIEN
Today (Saturday) we'd been looking forward to visiting friends at a nearby village, and witness the working of their communal bread oven, similar to the one below. Unfortunately our plans had to be changed and our visit was cancelled.
This particular oven (below) is at St Roman de Codieres , north of Montpellier, but is much the same as the one we'd planned to visit. Our first house here had its own similar huge bread oven, but we never used it. I regret that now.
The video is a bit long (5 mins); but very relaxing in its way.
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
