Cob Oven Workshop 2013 at Nourished Roots

nourishedroots-logo-NEWEST

Join us 80km north of Winnipeg in Fraserwood, at Nourished Roots, where we will build a wood-fired cob oven over the course of this two-day workshop.

Cob is a mixture of clay, sand, binder and water. It is a natural building medium, and variations of this mode of building can be found all over the globe.

Cob is a wonderful thermal mass. It comprises the oven body, and also acts as a mortar to build the plinth of the oven. The cob oven we will build during this workshop is called a black oven. This means that the firebox and the cooking chamber are the same.

Cob Oven Building Workshop in Winnipeg

June 25th-26th, and July 2nd 2011

Join cob oven master and Urban Eatin’ member Paolo Riva for an in-depth session on building a cob oven.

Cob is a mixture of clay, sand, straw and water that is a very versatile building material, with a plethora of uses. Because cob functions as an excellent thermal mass, it’s perfect for oven construction. The radiant heat it provides is perfect for cooking, and is most especially suited to bread-baking and pizza. This workshop will cover the construction of a wood-fired oven from the ground up.
