The bakers never try to undersell each other. From the banks of 34 THE BREAD MYSTERY the Oued Fès to the Bab al Jaloud gate the baking charge per loaf is five dirhams, about forty cents. No bakery promises swifter service than his nearest competitor. It takes Ahmed as long to bake a bread as it takes Abdul, and some mystical market force appears to ensure that no one baker has more loaves than he can handle. If there was a difference in ambience from bakery to bakery, it eluded me. Descending into one such establishment after another I witnessed the same tableau: makeshift shelves of round loaves, a worker or two crouching by the wood- or dung-fired hearth working the baking breads with an immense ramallah, or peel.

And he’d never before built an oven above the ground, one with a cellar below it. The way the bakehouse was originally designed the finished oven would’ve crashed through the floor. Unlike most brick or stone ovens, the oven at Bakehouse Hill derives its cooking heat from a wood fire built right on the hearth rather than in a separate firebox. ‘It took a couple of months to get things right because the cement was curing,’ says London. ’ A large part of the baker’s craft is building and babysitting the fire until the heat from the spent embers is the right temperature for baking.

56 BREAD IS MY PATH Commercial yeast is another scourge. Most breads are far too yeasty, says London. As it is with wine, fermentation should be slow. When London speaks of his levain starter, he waves an arm to encompass the sweep of his farm. ‘We have wild grapes growing here,’ he says. ‘Ever notice the cast of musty colour on an organic grape? That’s wild yeast, and that’s all it takes. There are these wild spores in the air, and all we do is to lasso these spores and get them into a starter or culture.
