Big G just emailed to ask what baking facilities are going to be available particularly because we have a large group of bakers.
This was my reply: “Well, the rugby club has a hit & miss Falcon 6 burner with a double oven underneath + a convection oven which will bake about 4 large loaves at a time. I’ll take down my Blue Seal which will take 6 large loaves and I’m going to try to borrow the same model from a café in the village which is only used a couple of days a week for baking cakes. So even ignoring the Falcon that would be 16 large loaves an hour. Plus I’m hoping Joe will get his mobile oven down + there’s some interest in building a clay oven.
Basically I’ll take down all my kit and Rick will bring up some racks by Saturday. There are two stainless steel work tables down there already. I have a friend who will lend three more. If everyone brings their personal kit, people will have to be disciplined about sharing work space and cleaning up after themselves, but we should be fine.”
Time you people started to talk to each other on the blog because it’s down to you to plan the event.
My feeling is we should close the event to other bakers and people who haven’t bothered to confirm they are coming but these decisions are down to you collectively.
I have some customers who might well want to join in and who might want to be involved in in a mud oven building.
We need a list of partners who are coming with named bakers and to know if they are coming as bakers or just involved in meals. Plus numbers camping, caravans, etc.
