Look what my personal blacksmith got me for Christmas! It’s a special tool which attaches to the angled lip of my new baking sheets to allow me to insert and retrieve bread from the oven without further singeing the faux-fur on my winter jacket, or my eyebrows for that matter. He custom-made it for me, and it works perfectly.

It’s particularly well-suited to making little foccaccia breads for Christmas-leftover sandwiches which he can grill on the panini press I gave him. Love that tidy convergence.

    that is a beautiful tool and handmade for you. That has definately got the “wow” factor.
    The snow around the cob oven also adds to the overall wowiness of this post.

    OMG I want that oven!!
    Did you build it yourself?
    We are just starting to build in the mountains and an outdoor oven seems to be a must to bake my bread and stuff. Any tips would be greatly appreciated 🙂
