This hands on workshop is recommended for all bakers, designers and chefs who are interested in physically building a Wood-Fired Clay Oven.
Over the course of two days you will construct a complete earth oven from scratch. By doing so you will gain ample understanding of the building methods, requirements and usage of clay as a raw material. Christo will also explain how to safely use such an oven and maybe share some of his finer pizza and sourdough bread recipes.
