Ceramic Bread Domes
These domes are designed to go into an ordinary domestic oven, where they create the effect of a brick oven, producing a beautiful, rounded loaf with a crisp crust and moist crumb. Most of the baking aromas that normally drift round the kitchen so temptingly are trapped and concentrated in the crust, which tastes remarkably sweet and nutty.
The domes are specially made for us by gifted artist Sigrid Hovmand on the island of Samsø in Denmark. Individually made, the colours will vary between domes (from a pale straw shade to a warm, dark brown). The large size will take up to 2 kg of a whole-grain dough and about 1.6 kg of a lighter plain dough. The small size will take 0.8-1.2 kg of dough depending on its density and capacity for expansion.
