Following the success of Manna from Devon Cooking School’s wood-fired oven cooking courses at their school in Kingswear, co-owner Davis Jones has been invited to host guest workshops at broadcaster Kate Humble’s farm, Humble by Nature. The Cooking on a Wood-Fired Oven courses will take place at Kate’s farm located near Monmouth in the beautiful Wye Valley on May 20, June 10 and September 9.

During this course, visitors will be taught how to make the very most of cooking using both the farm’s brick Pompeii oven and their Esse Firestone oven. Using the freshest of ingredients, including meat reared on Kate’s farm, students will learn how to make pizza dough, shape, top and bake pizzas and they will also be taught how to roast, griddle, grill and bake. Sweet and savoury delights, including a fish stew, stuffed peppers, roast chicken and vegetables and spiced apple empanadas as well as many other tastebud-tingling dishes will be taught throughout the one-day course. In addition to culinary techniques, David will also cover vital aspects such as siting the oven, wood selection, how to light and heat the fire as well as controlling and measuring temperatures. The one-day courses cost £95 per person and run from 10am - 4.30pm, lunch and ingredients included.

David said: “We are extremely excited to have the chance to teach the ancient art of cooking with a wood-fired oven at Humble by Nature. Our courses are hugely popular at our cooking school in Kingswear, Devon, and this is a fantastic opportunity to take them ‘on the road’ to a new location. It’s a real privelege to work alongside Kate. We share a very similar philosophy regarding food, its provenance and sustainable living. We are delighted to be able to add our courses to the brilliant rural skills courses on offer at Humble by Nature.”

David has been teaching the art of wood-fired cooking for the past seven years, and has been at the forefront of this trend. He and his wife holly have co-authored The Wood-Fired Oven Cookbook, a recipe book bursting with dishes perfect for wood-fired oven cooking.

More: Humble by Nature is a working farm owned by broadcaster Kate Humble and her husband Ludo Graham. The farm is home to a thriving rural skills centre reconnecting people to the land and teaching animal husbandry, smallholding, food, rural skills and crafts.

A range of courses

Manna from Devon Cooking School and B&B was established in 2005 by David and Holly Jones. It is run from their beautiful South Devon Victorian home in Kingswear, overlooking the River Dart. Each class is made up of no more than eight people, allowing for maximum participation.

When the course has finished, lunch is served, made up of all the food cooked by you and served with a chilled glass of local wine.

Courses include Cooking with a Wood-Fired Oven, Family Cooking Days, Fabulous Fish, Classic Thai Cooking and Mediterranean, all from £149 per person per class. On David and Holly’s trip around India in 2013 they picked up an array of recipes and styles of cooking from their travels to the states of Rajasthan and Kerala. They share these experiences, new found knowledge and flavours in their Inside North Indian Cooking and Inside South Indian Cooking courses. In addition, David and Holly have recently explored North America where they widened their already vast knowledge on outdoor cooking techniques.
