This course is for students who have taken an intro to fire cooking course with Sarah and will focus on advanced techniques. If you haven't taken an intro class, you must take that course before signing up for the advanced session.
We’ll make doughnuts, pizzas, a roast, and charred glazed peaches to name a few dishes. The class will cover ash cooking, ovens, roasting, brûlée, deep frying and more. You’ll also have freedom to experiment with access to expert advice.
We will make a feast and you will be full of food and knowledge by the end, and graduate a guaranteed fire-cooking bad ass.
