oven that had never been used. " So we came out
here and fired it up for way too long it was probably
, degrees, " he says with a laugh. e
ruined all the bread. "
hris learned the proper way to best utilie
the oven and eventually, his friends and family
said they had no more room in their freeers
for his gifts. A friend invited him to do a pop-up
shop during a monthly art gathering. e brought
about three doen loaves of bread and sold out.
e was hooked.
I haven't stopped since, " he says. I signed up
for the olumbia armers arket almost immediately
after that and now we're up to  to 
loaves for every market. "
The oven he uses is a black oven, meaning
that the fire is cleaned out of the oven before
baking. It cooks using the residual heat. The
day before he bakes, hris is at the farm firing
up the oven for a few hours to heat it through.
hen he returns the net morning, the oven
will have cooled down to about  degrees, but
the heat is throughout. e lights another uick
fire in the oven to give it a boost. The wood is
cleaned out and the bread goes in.
hris makes all the dough by hand, bypassing
a mier. y miing his water with his leaven
for about  minutes  a process called autolyse
 he cuts back on the kneading reuired for
his dough. That creates the gluten so instead
of kneading the dough, it's ust a short series of
folds, " the baker says.
ourdough refers more to the method of making
the dough as opposed to the flavor of the
bread. iddle  tone is currently using a sourdough
starter that dates back  years to a an
rancisco bakery. hris likes to keep his ingredients
as local as possible and it doesn't get any
more local than his whole wheat and rye flours.
e buys them from ichard, who mills the flours
less than a risbee throw away from the oven.
I was weighing some out this morning, " hris
says. It still felt warm from being milled. "
nce the dough is made, it's stored in a walkin
cooler overnight to slow down the fermentation
process until the net morning. hris is
oined on baking days by his roommate, osh
antiago. orking in batches, they measure
and shape the dough into about  different
boules. The loaves rise while the oven is prepped
for cooking. hris scores the bread and using a
tool almost akin to a canoe paddle, he loads 
loaves into the oven.
e're outside, so I'm kind of at the mercy of
other ature with control over the oven, " he
Right, from top: Chris bakes bread in the wood-burning
stove twice a week in preparation for the Columbia
Farmers Market. Once he arrives at the farm, he begins by
weighing out each loaf and forming them into individual
boules. He and his roommate, Josh Santiago, then dust each
loaf and let the dough balls rise as they prepare the oven.
