Wood Fired Oven Cooking School
I met David and Holly at the Exeter Food Festival in Devon early in 2009 and knew instantly that I wanted to work with them. David spoke passionately about his love for Artisan Bread Baking while Holly's Sticky Toffee Pudding and Brownies drew crowds from all over England!
They purchased a Medium-size Oven which is now the corner stone to many of their cooking courses.
I attended the course in May 2010 and even after cooking with wood burning ovens for over 10 years, there were still things to learn. It was a great day and David covered a whole host of issues - from lighting the fire all the way through to cooking overnight and cooling ovens.
For anyone who has bought an oven and wants to take it further, cooking so much more than just pizza, you will not be disappointed.
If you are interested in cooking on a Wood Burning Oven and want to try it out, this is the perfect way to check it out.
David and Holly also run and design private courses to meet your requirments. So if you are setting up an oven in a restaurant or would like to design a menu to impress your friends for a special occasion or event - give them a call!
I know you will be impressed with their honest and open hospitality and approach.
My Dingley-Dell Wood burning Oven is my absolute favourite way to cook. Not only is it a dramatic and fun cooking experience but the flavour of the food coming out of it is exceptional. It's great for both bread and fish, which we cook a lot, and brings a definite Mediterranean feel to any meal prepared in it.
Throughout the warmer months we'll be running a series of classes aimed at anyone who has or is thinking of buying or building a woodfired oven. I know from experience that using them to maximum effect takes a little getting used to and we'll practice everything; wood selection, lighting and heating the fire, maintaining heat and of course cooking. A woodfired oven has many cooking applications and we'll cook quick dishies when it's very hot , roasts and bread as it cools slightly and long slow braises later on.
We'll use the traditional style oven (pictured above) to demonstrate the full versatility of this method of cooking and to give you as complete a picture as possible of how to get the best from your own oven.
Each course is limited to 8 places to allow for maximum participation. £125.00 per person. Lunch included. Starts 10:00 and ends around 4:00
