Earth Oven Portugal

"This is a view over the shoulder of one of the workers in the bakery as he withdraws the freshly baked bread from the oven with a wooden spatula. The oven was very large and held many loaves. Upon removal the bread jiggled like it were jelly. When cooled, the bread had the consistency of a brick. The oven was first filled with fire to heat the oven. Then the coals are removed and the bread dough inserted to be cooked by the heat retained in the oven."
