Cooking in a Cob Oven

This is the third video in a series that starts with How to Start a Fire in Your Cob Oven, followed by Preparing Sourdough for Cob Oven Baking, and this one covers getting the oven ready for baking and the baking itself. 

A cob oven gets hot enough to do plenty of baking. This is what we call successional baking. Start with pizzas or flat breads, follow it up with several loaves of bread and a roast with veggies, bake some cookies, a sweet loaf or a pie, and you'll have yourself quite a feast. With this much food you'll need to invite some friends, neighbours or family over to help you enjoy it. That's part of the fun of having a cob oven – delighting guests with well prepared and tasty food.

    Hi Ashley and Heather – it was wonderful having the two of you as classmates at the Verge PDC program in Gull Lake and to have the opportunity to participate in one of your Cobb Oven workshops. It was so much fun working the clay and building the oven (the pictures are hilarious) and the energy that the two of you demonstrated throughout the process was contagious.

    I am thoroughly hooked on Cobb, Rocket Mass Heaters and Natural Building – I can’t wait to attend another workshop. Looking forward to seeing the two of you again soon.

    I cannot imagine a community without at least one of these amazing Cobb ovens – food does bring us together xo

    p.s Can I have your sourdough starter recipe Heather?
