A full weekend of cooking outdoors.

Well I’ve done the weekend cooking now, thankfully no more rain, Saturdays pizza went great, we ate outside, and no sticking issues on the peel, so must have been the rain/time running from the kitchen, I use a 50/50 semolina/polenta mix for dusting the peel and dough, this has always been great for my bread, so carried it on for pizza .
I had some pizza dough left so experimented with chocolate pizza, dipped into melted chocolate spread…..very delicious and the wife and kids loved it
I’m planning on building a roof for my outdoor kitchen, and building an outdoor cinema/chill out area, so i’ll be able to cook and we can eat outdoors even in the rain….
The roast pork joint was delicious, marinated in a garlic and rosemary paste and slow cooked for 4 hours, I just left the embers in the back of the oven, I probably should have used a little foil to cover the joint at first as it was a little too crispy on the top, but you learn from these mistakes.
The bbq on sunday evening was lovely and laid back, with sunshine, lots of local sausages burgers, belly pork and ribs, home made bread, garlic and rosemary focaccia, and home made coleslaw.

  1. Hello, I just discovered your blog and wanted to let you know how much I enjoy it. Lucky you, what a wonderful outdoor oven. My husband keeps thinking about having one built. When you finish your outdoor cooking kitchen, you will never get anyone to go back inside.

    • Thank you for visiting. It really isn’t too hard to build, I’ve never built anything before.
      Just need a covered area, so we can carry on cooking and eating outdoors.
      Cheers
      Marcus
