Established in 2005, the Manna from Devon Cooking School and Bed and Breakfast is run by Holly and David Jones. They teach cooking skills to small groups in the relaxed environment of our Victorian home overlooking the beautiful River Dart in South Devon. They also have two beautiful bed and breakfast rooms. Holly and David believe that cooking should be free of stress or anxiety, and structure courses to emphasise hands-on practice of good, basic culinary techniques rather than slavishly following a particular recipe. In this way they hope to impart to their students the confidence to cook intuitively, to trust their senses, and to have fun while doing so!
This original masterclass on wood-fired oven cooking is the ultimate introduction to using your oven and producing delicious and flavourful food.
In this episode David offers a full introduction on how wood-fired ovens work, how to choose your wood for your fire, stacking your wood and measuring the temperature of your oven to create a controlled environment for cooking.
This masterclass will have you ready and rearing to start cooking!
