Jesse Stevens is a wood-fired oven enthusiast, with years of experience building, firing, and baking ovens made of both cob (clay) and brick. In addition to home ovens, he's constructed commercial baking and pizza ovens across the state, such as Bonobo Pizza, Nezinscot Farm, Broadturn Farm and Squire Tarbox Inn. Jesse has also worked to set up several retail baking and pizza operations.
"In my home oven, a wheelbarrow load of gleaned brush and wood will provide enough retained heat to bake off a pizza dinner, a batch of 5 loaves of bread, roast a chicken, bake beans overnight, then still be warm enough the next day to make great yogurt, and dehydrate fruits and herbs. I'm also sequestering carbon in the form of biochar as another by-product of the firing process."
Come with your work clothes on and ready to get dirty. We will mix
materials and construct the oven. Lunch and beverages provided!
