I posted pictures of an old brick oven in Newrybar NSW back in 2009 (see below, way below....). I had heard that the oven had been rebuilt, and was delighted to meet Dimitri, a young enthusiastic French baker, in the 'old shed' behind Harvest restaurant. The oven has been rebuilt, and the old shed is now a wonderful bright space.
The old oven was renovated and restructured, and is now a smaller unit within the old shell...fire in, as opposed to the original which had a fire box. The old front has been retained, but the back has been turned into a private dining room, which shows how massive this original oven was. In the picture of the back room, one can still the the 'soldier course' of bricks that denoted the extent of the original beast!
Oh...and Dimitri, that bread was wonderful, thank you!
Now some recent pics:
