Wood Fired Baking

Outdoor wood-fired bake ovens were common in the 19th century and are making a revival today.

Learn from experts about the design and construction of a traditional oven and bake breads, a sweet and savory pie and gourmet pizza. You’ll learn the intricacies of firing the oven and reading the oven temperature without modern tools. In addition to lunch of freshly baked pizza, you’ll take home two loaves of bread.

This class will be conducted both in- and outside so please dress accordingly in natural fiber materials, since you’ll be working around flames. You’ll want to bring an apron as well.
