Never mind the grill: Outdoor bread, pizza baking Sunday at Barton Street Community Garden

Barbecue grills might be the official outdoor-cooking appliances of summer, but you can break the mold by joining in wood-fired baking with the Barton Street Community Garden and P-Patch, which invites you to drop by sometime this Sunday:

The 2014 gardening season is underway! To mark the start of summer, the Barton Street Community Garden and P-Patch will fire up its wood-fired masonry bread and pizza oven. Architect and designer/builder Chris Luthi, who led the project construction, will host. He’ll introduce the use of traditional community ovens as well as masonry oven cooking techniques. Neighbors are invited to join the event, which will feature baking bread and bagel in the morning and pizzas in the afternoon. Participants are encouraged to bring cheese, sauce and toppings for pizzas, and a limited amount of dough for bagels and pizzas will be provided. This informational and fundraising event is open to all.

    Sorry I missed this event. When is the next “Fire it up” event scheduled for?

      No date yet as of our inquiry yesterday (that’s what the last line alludes to). If we get word of one, we’ll get it into the calendar! Hope they have better weather next time, though spirits did NOT appear to have been dampened :) – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
