Upcoming events include the Pizza Party on Friday, see below, the Food Foraging Walk in Woodbridge and the Stanton Mill Open Day on Sunday

Sunday 2nd September, Day 2 of the Challenge saw a group of us finish off the clay oven at The People’s Community Garden. Our technique definitely got better as we went along.

It was much easier to mix the clay into the sand, rather than starting with the clay and adding sand to it.

Baked potato sized balls of sand/clay worked best.

The door was cut out by master knife-man Will.

An upside-down sand bag supported by 4 metal poles was used to protect the oven from the sun and rain while it dried out.

We are planning to take out the sand inside the oven on Thursday, and hoping that the oven will have dried out enough to be used at our Pizza Party, scheduled for 5.30-8.30pm on Friday.  The weather is looking good all week so fingers’ crossed!

We’ll update the website on Thursday night to confirm plans for the party. Check here to make sure it is happening. If you are thinking of coming please phone Ips 250499 by 10pm Thursday, or e-mail 30milefoodchallenge@gmail.com as we are getting the K-Bar bakers to make the pizza dough for us on Friday and want a rough idea of numbers. We won’t turn anyone away but don’t want to run short on dough unnecessarily.

Please bring along things to go on the pizzas (the more local the better), drink and a salad of some sort to share, and a mug or plastic cup for your drink. If you have an old baking tray (no more than 35cm wide or long) that you are happy to put in the oven do bring that too. The cost will be £1 per head.
