BRINGING MORE OF THE
WILD INTO OUR WORLDS
COB OVEN MAKING
Cob is an ancient earthen building
technique and is the simple combination
of sand, clay, and straw. Mixed together,
these ingredients create a super durable,
long-lasting, heat-tolerant material for
building outdoor ovens. (Homes have
been built out of cob for thousands of
years all over the globe!) You can build
your own cob oven for as little as what
you might spend on a pizza delivery on
a Friday night, and here we’re going to
get messy and see what we come up
with – hopefully some bread for dinner
SAT & SUN Village Green 11:30AM
Apparently not all bread is created equal.
Commercial ‘baking’ yeast is a single
kind of organism that belches a lot of
gas really fast and transforms grain into
something that’s even less good for you.
Sourdough is two organisms, wild yeast
and bacteria, in symbiosis. Come and
make some sourdough and bake it in the
cob oven we’re also making.
