Apart from pre-grated cheese which is RIDICULOUS, I’m usually pretty against things that take ages to make that you can just buy in a shop (bread, cakes, cider). But since seeing this simply beautiful bread oven designed by California’s Mirko Ihrig, I’m totally coming round to the idea. Mirko’s bread-maker is the final project in his MA in Industrial Design that he completed in Sweden and the project is “a reaction to the fact that many people don’t know where our food comes from anymore. Fast foods and other processed industrial foods determine our daily lives.”
To combat this problem his bread oven is small, good-looking and does the job of baking bread very, very nicely. “The outcome is a collection of objects that are needed to make bread from scratch. It consists of a mill to grind flour, a jar to cultivate a sourdough, a bowl to mix the ingredients, a board to knead the dough, a paddle to transfer the loaves and an oven to finally bake the bread.” One please.
