Having spent the weekend at Rocombe Retreat, nestled in the rolling hills surrounding the teign valley in South Devon we have a new love for the Cob Oven!
We even managed to cook up some mussels fresh from the river teign mussel beds, and seared some tuna as well. (Not from the sea locally I’m afraid to admit)
We produced the classic spelt flour pizzas, with various toppings such as red onion and goats cheese, olive and anchovey and a classic Margaretta for some very fussy children.
We had also planned to do a little dying in the covered barn but time ran away with us and we ended up mainly eating and drinking by the oven.
All in all it was an awesome Holiday not far from home (although we could have been anywhere in Europe to be honest – what a classically tranquil spot)
