The trend for cooking with fire is bigger than ever and it shows no sign of cooling down. In 2017 cooking on a wood fired oven is going to be huge and Holly and David Jones, from Manna from Devon Cooking School, are the experts to teach you how. Connoisseurs in everything wood fired, book your space on their ever-popular courses before they’re snapped up.
With more restaurants, food vans and hotels choosing to cook with fire, it is no wonder people have acquired a taste for the smokey delicacies it produces and are opting to install wood fired ovens at home. Holly and David teach students how to prepare, manage and use the flame to cook a whole range of dishes, from ‘flash in the pan’ squid, slow roasted joints, baked artisanal breads and delicious sweet treats.
Holly and David’s expertise came from a love of cooking in traditional ways and after taking gastronomic trips around the world, including India and more recently to the Southern States of America, they have picked up tips and tricks from the best pitmasters and tandoori kings of the world.
Recently becoming the brand ambassadors for Morsø Wood Fired Ovens, and having published the ‘Wood Fired Oven Cookbook’ in 2012, Holly and David are excited looking ahead to 2017 and have a lot in store for the year. Watch this space!
Holly, whose formal training was at Leith’s cookery school, is Manna from Devon’s expert in seafood, and now, to add to her repertoire, is teaching the wood fired oven courses alongside David. Both run the school group classes and are now available to teach private classes, either in their purpose built wood fired kitchen or in situ with your wood fired oven at home.
