Other Projects

Just a quick post to say that I haven't forgotten about my new oven but have been busy working and trying to get my Handyman website off the ground

Bristol Handyman Company

Many thanks to Simon Richardson for all the help and feel free to spread the word and keep me busy!

In the meantime I look forward to more Pizza parties and a bread bake in the near future and another oven build is in the pipeline (somewhere else!), so watch this space!

Second round of pizzas!

Another Saturday night at home with the missus and kids bolstered up with a visit from Lizzie and Emma from Whitstable (plus Kipper the dog) and Kate and David from down the road.


The oven was fired up again and only took 45 minutes to get up to temperature this time which was a vast improvement on the first pizza session. The dough was made to what I thought was the same mix as before but was a bit stickier than last time making for some interesting techniques with the peel and a few pizzas turned into 'Ashy Calzones' but I think everyone made and enjoyed at least one good Pizza. (Hats off to Lizzie for cooking two good gluten free ones!)

A lot of Wine and Gin consumed and managed to stay up till midnight chatting which was nice!

Felt it the next day and my enthusiasm for a Sunday garden centre visit was at an all time low. Many thanks to Polly for putting up with me.

Next post coming soon!
