We would like to recreate the tradition of the communal bread oven that was pivotal to village life in Europe for many centuries. The oven was fired up once a week and the locals would carry the dough they had prepared at home. Each family marked the top of the dough with a distinctive cut to distinguish their bread from another family. The bread oven was where the village gathered: family news was shared, political matters debated, and community was built. We fire our oven and you bring your home-made dough. You will learn how to bake in a wood-fired oven, be able to experiment, taste, discuss and share tips and recipes with fellows bread lovers. While your bread is baking or your dough is rising, you are welcome to stroll through our four-acre garden along the banks of the Eno.
