We recently completed our first Cob oven. There are so many names, cob oven, pizza oven, bread oven, wood fired oven i think my personal favourite is now an Adobe oven.
We had been collecting materials for ages, years in fact. It was with the help of Jessica who teaches adobe oven construction, that we held a course here at the brickyard.
We had already constructed the base for the oven so the course just worked on the floor of the oven, the former to create the shape and the first layer of cob.
There were some fantastic days mixing and adding the two further layers of cob which need a week to dry before the next layer can go on.
and here is some of the food everyone cooks with the oven.
