Your Brick Oven

Building it and baking in it

Russell Jeavons, Maggie Beer

Your Brick Oven
Russell Jeavons owned and operated an eccentric pizza restaurant for many years in Willunga on the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia, a region famous for its almonds, olive oil and McLaren Vale wine. Known simply as ‘Russell’s’, the restaurant – which for many years opened only on Friday nights – gained a cult following due to the combination of fresh, wholesome food served in a simple and informal style and cooked entirely in Russell’s brick ovens.

In Your Brick Oven Russell shares his passion and knowledge of building, firing and cooking for crowds according to ancient traditions. With the help of photographs and diagrams his step-by-step guide takes you through all the stages of building an oven, from choosing a site to firing up for your first bake.

Includes recipes for bread, roast lamb, pizza and desserts.
