Breadmaking

Khiva

This clay oven called a tandor is typical of Central Asia and is used to bake the nan bread found all over the region. The wooden ‘stamps’ in the foreground are used to ‘decorate’ the bread. Nan should always be placed face up on the table - ie. the stamped side up - and should always be treated with respect.
