Quite a story from a Boston Globe blog about a man who built a "Roman oven" in his backyard so he could use it for her wedding reception. There are some great pictures on the site too.
My colleague Sue DiManno told me about an unusual wedding reception her sister, Amy Chessia, threw in their back yard in Scituate for her daughter, Morgan, in late August. Amy's partner, Eric Stamp, built this oven from a book he got for Christmas.A Roman oven, apparently, has no chimney or venting out in front of it. Simple design, but I'm sure it works well.
