We have two little Bake Houses. One at the northern end of the site and one at the Southern end of the site, allowing everyone a turn. Each one has a traditional Earth Oven with a table (where you can roll out your dough and add the toppings).
Its a fantastic activity for all the family, as it requires everyone to pitch in and help! The children can gather some kindling from the wood, one adult can prepare the dough in the kitchen, another makes the fire in the oven and keeps it going for 1 -2 hours (for theoven to reach a high heat). Its so very simple. All the heat for the fire absorbs into the earth walls of the oven.. The children can have fun creating their favourite toppings, then watch them cook before your own eyes!
Two or three families can use the oven together by creating another fire to get it to a high heat when you need to. Bring your flour, yeast, tomato paste and toppings. We supply the firewood.
