Pizza obsessive Michael Oswald from Earth & Fire will demonstrate how people of all ages can quickly become masters in the art of fresh pizza making. All you need is a love of pizza and are prepared to get covered in a generous dusting of flour! This class will show you how to make perfect pizza dough, avoiding some all too familiar pitfalls, as well as top tips and shortcuts for sauces and toppings. He will also show you just how economical cooking from scratch can be and that you will have all the required tools and utensils in your own kitchen.
Michael is a professional foodie who has combined his passion for food and excitement of cooking with an open flame to create his company Earth & Fire. Based on the National Trust Gibside Estate at Rowlands Gill, they produce wonderful wood-fired pizza, bread and other bakes. Earth & Fire can also be found at markets and food festivals across the North East as well as providing further courses in pizza and bread making at Gibside.
