One of the most important features of a Kytherian house is its fournos - oven.

The fournos at the Tzortzopoulos patriko spiti lies just outside the kitchen on the lower level.

There is a subtle art to making a good fournos. It is not simply a matter of enclosing a space and placing a chimney on top of it.

My grandmother Kirranni Koroneos (nee, Souris, Petrouni) also explained to me that you got the best results from a fournos if you picked just the right size olive branch, with just the right level of dryness.

What does your fournos look like?
