A bread oven is a brick oven used to bake bread. These characterful old bread ovens and bakehouses are under threat. Not only the buildings themselves disappear, but also the knowledge to build and use such bread ovens.

With this project the MOT would like to do something to prevent this. Here, we offer a multitude of technical knowledge on the restoration, build and use of bread ovens.

Since 2003, we keep inventory of both the preserved and demolished bread ovens. Do you know of a bread oven, or do you know someone who single-handedly restored or built one? Please send the address and a photo to info@mot.be.

Too much theory? During our "Building your oven" course you learn the tricks of the trade. You can experience the whole process of firing to baking during our Bake-Do in our bakehouse at the Liermolen.
