The Wood Fired Oven is a place to come together to cook, to share, to learn and to eat. Located in Hovell Tree Park, near Albury Swim Centre, the Oven has an undercover area and a playground – everything you need for a great day out. The Oven is fired every second Sunday for free community use. The skills, time and expertise of an Oven Coordinator is on hand to assist you (guidance only, you do the other fun bits). During daylight savings, October – March, the oven is open for baking from 3pm – 8pm. For the rest of the year, April – September, the oven is open from 11am – 4pm. How does it work? The Oven is lit the night before a bake. The Oven Coordinator clears out the ash and prepares the oven ready to take pizzas, bread and any other goodies. The temperature slowly drops during the day. Pizzas should be cooked early in the bake, then bread and finally roasts, cakes and biscuits. Anything you bake in your oven at home you can bake in this one. Here are some of things you can bake: Bread and damper Pizzas Roast meat and vegetables Cakes, scones and biscuits Pies and quiches What to bring It is best if you arrive with your dough or ingredients. You will also need a baking tray if you are baking meat or vegetables. Don’t forget your utensils. You will need these for cutting, turning, rolling etc. Be safe The Community Wood Fired Oven is like any other oven and there are precautions that need to be taken. Safety information is on site for your reference. Hold your next event at the oven Have you got an event or function coming up?
