The cost, including lunch both days, all ingredients and printed material, is $500 per participant. Every participant will take with them a loaf of each bread they have baked themselves, plus four ounces of Mary G's wild yeast starter they can propagate. A daily class agenda is available. See the What's New Page for dates.

Building and baking in wood-fired brick ovens is a worldwide phenomenon that is gaining speed. There are literally hundreds of sites and forums out there on the Internet. This community, from North America, South America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand is universally passionate about construction, bread and pizza, and universally generous with their time, advice and encouragement.  This goes a lot further, entering the broader world of cuisine and wine.  What, after all, could be better than a fine pairing of wood fired pizza and great wine?

Mary G's is all about bread, but that doesn't mean we don't make pizzas, though our oven is specifically designed for bread baking.  If you're thinking about buying or building your own pizza oven, definitely visit http://www.mugnaini.com/ .   Through The Pizza Builders, Mary G's is the authorized contact for Mugnaini ovens in eastern Canada, so talk to us directly for more information on buying an authentic pizza oven for your home or restaurant or bakery.  We have the experience and the personnel to carry out expert installations, both inside and outside. 

Another great site, run by Bill Funkhouser, will give you lots of tips on building your own oven, making pizza and a great deal more specific information.  Check it out at www.woodfiredpizza.org.
 

Extend Your Visit

If you come to Mary G's for one of our courses, be advised that good accommodations are not plentiful in our area.  We do have a list of approved establishments, primarily B&Bs.  However, if you're looking for superior accommodation, exceptional spa treatments, great meals and fine wine, but sure to visit Highfields Country Inn and Medi Spa.  It's located in a beautiful country setting near the Village of Zephyr and close to Uxbridge.
