One oven will be built on a London canal boat the second will be moved by a London Taxi. The impact of our new design will be an oven that is more efficient in • heat capture and store • fuel use • producing less emissions The oven will be • tested on bakers • draw on engineering expertise from the Aprovecho Research Centre • suitable for community and commercial use • sustain baking temperatures • fully tested and ISO certified before going to market
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We have build over 30 community ovens since 2008. We now want to offer community a portable version for occasional use and one that is tested to a higher specification, is ISO tested and suitable for commercial use. The portable oven is an integral part of an long term goal to generate employment opportunities from its build and use by mud masons and chefs. We will work initially with the repeat offending youth market. The oven will be available for use at festivals and events for community to fundraise and make use of London's canals and the iconic London taxi to celebrate London and the 45 million year old clay that sits beneath our streets.
Steps to get it done:
Our work will draw on the expertise of master bakers, cob mason, heating engineers, education and training specialists.

Thanks to everyone that has 'liked' and generously donated to the Build Book n Bake idea of a portable cob oven to serve London communities - by providing food, fundraising opportunities for local groups and training to teach folks how to cook and fingers x start their own enterprise baking and selling great food. We only need £360. Please pass on to equally generous folk and help us reach our target! All best wishes The Cob in the Community Crew
