Calling all cooks and bakers! We will be having a communal period oven Friday night for baking bread and The GREAT Border Skirmish cookoff Saturday morning from 9:30-12:30. The cookoff will have a “signature challenge” and a “technical challenge” over a fire. Rules will be similar to the t.v. Great British Bakeoff as you will know your recipe in advance for the “signature challenge” and will have “some” of the recipe for the technical challenge (and you will need to use your skills to fine tune the recipe). Prize will be a period earthenware skillet….More details to follow……
