Portuguese Stone Oven Baking

The Kona Historical Society practices the traditional art of baking Portuguese bread in a large wood-fired forno, come and watch as staff and people from the community get together to talk story, roll dough, and bake it. 

This particular stone oven is a communal oven and can hold over 30 loaves of bread at a time. An oven this large needs at least 4 hours of heating time, requiring a die-hard volunteer to light the fire inside it at 6:00AM. While the oven is heating, the dough is mixed, allowed to rise, rolled into seven balls ( a lucky number for the Portuguese), and placed into pans. The coals from the fire are removed from the oven before the bread is put in, so that it is the stored heat in the stones that bakes the bread.

Between 12:30 -1:00pm is when the first batch of beautiful brown bread comes out of the oven. The loaves are sold for $8.00 and are available straight out of the oven around 1:00pm until sold out at our roadside table on a first come, first served basis.
