City Bakery - Fort Steele Heritage Town, British Columbia

The present City Bakery (#30) was constructed by Fort Steele Heritage Town to address the culinary needs of visitors and to
interpret an almost lost art (or technology, depending on your bent). The large wood-fired brick oven is capable of baking 250
loafs of bread at a time. It is fired early every morning in order to deliver fresh baking by 9:30, a.m. The aromas that waft from
the large double doors onto Riverside Avenue are its most effective advertising. In the fall it is THE popular gathering spot for
visitors looking for a warm spot to have a tasty morsel and a cup of coffee.

Poilane - Paris, France

The Poilâne oven is the very expression of a know-how that is based on extremely ancient construction methods. It is practically identical to the oven that existed in France at the beginning of the XIXth century. However, Lionel Poilâne had a recording made of its precise dimensions so that the company could identically reproduce it as often as necessary. It is heated with wood.

During the one hour baking time, the aromas from the burning wood are captured in the area surrounding the bread which is impregnated with a subtle aroma of smoke that no baking process or synthetic perfume can reproduce.

The Elms Inn - Ross, Tasmania

The Elms Inn is an 1832 Georgian sandstone coaching inn. Rooms have en-suite bathroom facilities and are furnished
