What an amazing opportunity!
A creative culinary adventure!
This was the 2nd summer that I cooked for a Complete Cob Course at the Cob Cottage Company. This year's course helped to build the new kitchen as they learned so many aspects of Natural Building. It was an honor to be back with my friends Linda and Ianto to participate in what they do and the beauty they have created.

My pursuit was to cook 3 meals a day for 10 days, for 32 people! The food is organic and cooked in an outdoor kitchen. I use a wood fired earthen oven for baking and toasting and roasting.

The school is beautiful. The people were all so kind and interesting. The garden there is stunning and majestically full of bounty for every meal. Thank you to my friends, new and treasured for taking part in the adventure with me.

The following info about the course is from their website- www.cobcottage.com ... Check it out!

Bernhard Masterson and Max Edleson


This is the most comprehensive cob course available in North America. In the past 15 years, we've taught almost 200 major cob courses. In 9 intensve days, we'll cover in depth all aspects of cob and the many techniques in building with cob including arches, details, shelving, furniture and earthen floors. In this expanded version of our most popular program ever, we'll take the ground out from under your feet and turn it into a versatile medium to sculpt a whole house. You will learn construction of walls, doors, windows, roofing, foundations, siting, design and artistic details. And you'll leave confident enough to build a cob building of your own!
