Event Announcement: Pizza Dough Lesson

Want to learn how to make pizza dough by hand? How about baking pizza in a wood-fired brick oven the true Napoletana style?

Our friends in the Ventura convivium have invited us to join them for an afternoon with Mike “The Bejker” Zakowski. Mike will demonstrate how to mix organic dough by hand and shape it, and then he’ll bake it in his very own handcrafted backyard brick oven. Dough will be ready to bake when everyone arrives, so bring your appetite! As a bonus, everyone will take some homemade dough home, too, for experimenting with later.

When: Sunday, September 19, 2004 from 1:00pm-4:00pm
Where: 32 West Ramona Street, Ventura 93001 (mapquest location)
Cost: $15 for Slow Food members; $20 for non-members, payable at the door. Cost includes sparking water and iced tea.
RSVP: by September 17 by calling Mary Blehm at 805.415.7253 or by email to maryblehm@hotmail.com.

What to bring besides your appetite? BYOB if you prefer beer or wine (and beer and wine donations/sponsorship would be much appreciated). Also, any toppings and/or herbs you have an abundance of from your garden would be welcome.

Thanks to Heartland Mills for donating organic flour for the event.
