TO BE ANNOUNCED
This Cob Oven Building workshop is designed to teach you the skills needed to build your own oven in your backyard, as well as encouraging a new way of relating to our food and the process in which it is cooked and created. The weekend will be catered with food cooked in the two already existing wood fired cob ovens we have on site. As we go through the process of building an oven, throughout the weekend we will also be engaging in the process of cooking in one and sharing and feasting on some of the myriad of things that can be cooked in them, including a pizza dinner Saturday night, frittatas, roasted vegetables, sourdough bread, granola, and yogurt. The process of building as well as cooking in a wood fired oven encourages us to redevelop our relationship to the way we eat and cook, encouraging us to engage in the journey of the creation of a meal.
Using clay, sand and straw, we will explore the entire construction process from foundation to roof. The class is primarily hands on, involving building an oven from start to finish. We will also go over all the other aspects of the building process, including soil analysis, options for variations on the oven design, moisture protection, heating and insulation for the oven, as well as how to fire and cook in the ovens.
