Adult's Dutch Oven course
Wednesday 25th March 2020-Cancelled
Cost £80 per adult
All food and equipment provided.
Just as the clocks are about to change and the days are beginning to warm up, join us for a unique cooking experience at Mount Ephraim Gardens. The focus of the day will be the ultimate piece of outdoor cooking kit, the Dutch Oven. Favoured by frontier folk as they travelled across the vast American Mid-West, this versatile and beautiful piece of kit is my desert-island must have!
The course will focus on a range of uses and techniques with the Dutch Oven, as well as fire management so that your food cooks in the temperature and time desired.
Examples of some of the foods that can be cooked include:
A roast dinner
Baking bread or cakes
Iron baked Pizza
As with all our courses, dietary requirements can be catered for, and we will aim to source our food from local and ethical suppliers where possible.
The course price includes day admission to the beautiful Mount Ephraim gardens.
