There is a sign in a yard along the highway coming back from town that reads HANDSPLIT COOKING WOODZ FOR SALE. How many people could there be who still cook with wood?
My grandmother had a wood cook stove. She also had an electric stove but she preferred the wood stove. I never could tell any difference with foods cooked on top but most things cooked in the cook-stove oven were definitely better. The only analogy I can think of is the difference between a pizza cooked in an ordinary kitchen oven and one cooked in a brick-lined pizza oven. Cakes, pies, breads, even roasts cooked in the wood stove were far superior in both texture and taste.
But, back to my original question: How many people could there be who still cook with wood?
