Private Woodfired Oven Classes

Woodfired Bread Dorset
Sometimes only a private class will suit your needs:
If you want a special day for a group of friends, if you are setting up your own wood fired business or if you just want to learn on your own oven at home we have the expertise and experience to help you.

Over the past 10 years we have run wood fired classes for businesses, families, social groups, corporate groups and individuals. Our private classes are totally flexible and we can generally fit you in very quickly. We have worked with many brands, including: Bushman, Stonebake, Le Panyol, Four Grand Mere, Alfa, Morso, Igneus and Forno Bravo.  We have also helped many people with the cob and brick ovens which they’ve build themselves or sometimes inherited as part of a house purchase. .

Here are jut a few examples of private classes we have run:

Family Class Old Basing
A one day class for mum, dad and a very enthusiastic 11 year.  They wanted to learn all about their new Jamie Oliver Dome 60.

Family Class Suffolk
2 days covering every aspect of cooking using a brand new Valoriani oven.

Family Class Dorset
A Christmas present for mum and 4 sons learning to cook on their own homemade cob oven. What a great day!

Tresco
We flew to Tresco for 3 days training the chefs at the Ruin Beach Café . They needed to know how to use the Le Panyol oven before the restaurant opened for the season.

Nerja
We dropped in on some English expats who had just invested in a oven from a local dealer.  They wanted a few insights into how to use the oven and knew we’d be in Spain for one of our regular group trips.

Mobile Pizza Business
Having had an oven installed in a horse box Emma needed to quickly learn how to use the oven, make pizzas and organise her operation ready for her first gig.  We worked with her to develop her skills and confidence and she’s still going strong.

Friends’ Class Northumberland
With Flybe flying from Exeter to Newcastle it was easy to pop up to the Northeast for a day’s training. We had a great day with a family group and their new Stonebake Mezzo 76.

Takeaway Wood Fired Pizza Business
Two business partners flew in from Ireland for 2 days of non-stop pizza making and working with the wood fired ovens. They started off a bit tentative and at the end were producing fabulous pizzas confidently and quickly. This is what they had to say “Beautiful place, superb course, couldn’t have asked for more. We got a real insight into exactly what we needed to know in regards to our specific choice of cooking. Thanks guys, we will be back.”


Whether you’d like to learn here at the school or on your own oven, we can help you really get to grips with how it all works.  We’ve worked with many kinds of ovens, as well as the ones we use here at the school, from homemade to manufactured so we’ll understand how yours is going to work.

Private classes are £650/day plus expenses (travel – ie flights plus hire car and fuel or mileage @45p/mile, overnight accommodation, ingredients) plus VAT for a group of up to 4 during the week; £1000 plus expenses at the weekend. Travel days are charged at 50% of the daily rate.
