More Information

This one day course shows you how you can build your own oven using simple techniques and materials. This is a very much a hands-and-feet on experience, tremendous fun and immensely satisfying. By the end of the day participants will have developed the skills they need to build an oven for themselves. During the day Matthew will fire up an oven and participants will cook their own pizza. While fantastic for baking pizza, wood-fired ovens are capable of cooking any dishes you desire, from roasts through to breads and desserts. The only limit is your imagination!
Children under 16 are welcome on the course as long as they are with an adult.
