Saturday, September 22, 2012 was the day we built the first real fire in the oven. What began as a training exercise with a bit of food turned into an all-day cookout. It was wonderful.

This photo was taken a few days prior, as an accompaniment to a piece in the Chronicle Herald. The piece is fair and does justice to the ambitions of the Oven Committee and the concerns of the neighbourhood. We hope a reporter will visit again, now that we are up and running.
