Using a cob oven is a centuries-old way of baking.
Perfect, then, for the 21st Century foodie.

Why cob? Because using cob allows you to build your own oven. Building with cob is fun!

Cob is a material with a clean conscience. Using the clay from under our feet, mixed with sand and straw, it has been a staple building material to millions across the globe for millennia.
In the Americas they call it adobe. No energy-hungry cement is used in the mix, and no machinery is required for construction. This is a truly accesible and sustainable method of building that connects us to our environment, and nourishes both our soul and our body.


Wood-fired ovens are becoming a foodie must-have. Your BBQ will gather cobwebs while you explore the delights of roasting and baking in a way that lights up your senses. Your roasts will be succulent and your pizzas will cook in seconds. Nothing beats a cob oven for the centre of attention at a party. Everyone will want to try their hand at baking a pizza, and will gather around the oven long into the night.

Burning wood is a low carbon process. No fossil fuel here. This is sustainable cooking, and if you burn fruit woods you'll be adding a very special accent to your dishes indeed.

A cob oven isn't just about pizza. You'll be baking bread, roasting vegetables, broiling meats - the only limit is your imagination. Learn to embrace this relaxed style of cooking, and you've got yourself an evening's entertainment that will have you heading back to the larder in search of more ingredients to try out. Prepare to inspirethe creative chef in you!

There are a growing number of ready-made wood-fired ovens on the market, yours for around £1500 upwards. A cob oven, however, can be made for much less.
We can show you how: attend one of our courses, or we can run a workshop at your venue.
