New and Traditional Techniques for Cooking and Baking with Fire
Earth and Fire: Earth Oven Building Workshop (2 days)
Saturday, May 3, 9am-5pm
Sunday, May 4, 10am-2:00pm
Earth ovens are the most simple and inexpensive way to bring wood-fired cooking and baking into your life. The bulk of this workshop is rolling up your sleeves to help construct multiple ovens from foundation frame to finished oven. Traditional thermal mass materials are covered as well as contemporary insulators that help make ovens more energy efficient. Alternative earth oven shapes and foundation options will be illustrated through photos and other printed materials. But what about after the oven is built? Firing techniques for using a finished oven will be demonstrated. By the end of this workshop you will understand the difference between thermal mass and insulation, know how to construct an oven, and see how to build a hot and fast fire.
