Campain-oven or Tourtière
The Court & Country Cook, Massialot. 1702, p. 9 [New Instructions for Confectioners].
Some tourtières were lined with tin and could be used as a baking pan itself. Others were not lined and were used with an inserted baking pan of ceramic or metal.These little ovens could be used in the fireplace off to the side with some coals both under and on top to control the cooking temperature and even browning of the item inside. They would work equally as well in a campfire setting.
