Reminds me of Stalinist Russia & Mao’s Cultural Revolution & Great Leap Forward in China.

Those Who Bake Are an Enemy of the State!

Authorities in Venezuela, homeland of the late Hugo Chavez, have been rounding up bakers, as in those who make tasty goodies in ovens, for making too much food and not following whatever stupid rules the bureaucrats have dictated.


Call me weird, old school, traditional. This woodstove is Majestic.

I am obsessed with old technologies, such as wood stoves which also served as kitchen appliances. I’d love to have a cabin somewhere with something like this. A place to get away, far from the madding crowds, where I can learn to cook and bake using only wood and fire.
