Wood Fired Pizza in a Garden near the Eno @ A Garden in Hillsborough
Sep 1 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

We’ve been experimenting with pizza in our home-made wood fired oven for a few years and quite a few of our friends call it “the best ever”. You’ll get to taste different pizza straight out of the oven and you are welcome to try your hand at it. Maybe you’ll end up building your own oven one day. You are welcome to start your visit with a relaxing late afternoon stroll through our four-acre garden along the banks of the Eno.
