BELOW'S TEXT was the invitation:
If you want to participate, please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. The workshop is free.
Join us for a one-day underground pit-cooking (or earth oven) workshop in the garden of Foundation BAD in Charlois.
At its most basic, an earth oven is a pit in the ground used to trap heat and bake, smoke, or steam food. Earth ovens have been used in many places and cultures in the past, and the presence of such cooking pits is a key sign of human settlement often sought by archaeologists.
The day will be punctuated by different activities including cooking a vegetarian meal together using this ancient technique. Together we’ll dig up the results and conclude the day with slow cooked delights.
Bring warm shoes, warm and rainproof clothes because we will spend most of the day outside!
