Spice up your life on our new tandoor oven workshop

Spice up your outdoor cooking on the UK’s

first ever earthen tandoor oven building


We’ve decided now is the time to take the nation’s love of outdoor cooking up a notch and launch our mouth watering tandoor oven building workshop. Its the first of its kind in the UK! We’ve done our research, we’ve built the perfect tandoor using the traditional methods and materials of clay and sand and we have perfected our curry and naan bread recipes donated by professional cooks in India. And we’ve got the cooking technique in the tandoor just perfect.

We are now ready to ply with you with most divine Indian cuisine cooked in our outdoor tandoor, teach you how to build your own tandoor, and give you an all round brilliant day out in an idyllic location near the sea in Lyme Regis.

What you will learn:

On this 1 day workshop we will show you how to source your clay and sand and mix them in the correct proportions to make cob. This is the traditional and original way of building tandoors. We will then show you how to sculpt your tandoor. You will leave the workshop with all the skills you need to go away and build your own tandoor oven.

You will also learn how to cook in your tandoor oven. We will use our existing oven to cook the best naan breads you will have ever tasted – we’ll show you how to clap it onto the inside of the oven. And we’ll serve you a mouthwatering vegetarian Indian lunch.

Eating is a big part of this course!

Our professional chef Charlotte Eve has spent weeks perfecting her naan bread recipe and cooking in giant tandoors, using recipes she’s collected from friends and relatives across India. She is determined everyone enjoys the ultimate authentic lunch when they come on the course. Charlotte says, “this course isn’t just about building a tandoor. It’s about eating too and relaxing in an idyllic location in the hills beside the Jurassic coast. Whether you are passionate about outdoor cooking or you fancy a unique hands on and delicious day out this course is designed for anyone who loves eating!”

Who is your tutor?

Kate Edwards has built award winning cob houses, studios, sculptures, pizza and bread ovens and now she’s perfected the art of sculpting an authentic, giant, earthen tandoor. Kate is your extremely experienced earth builder and teacher for the day.

Your tandoor is more than just an oven.

The tandoor we teach you to build on this 1 day workshop is much more than just an authentic tandoor oven. It will also be a sculptural work of art for your home. And it serves as a wonderful heater in the summer evenings for friends and family to gather round warming themselves as they devour delicious Indian Cuisine and inhaling the woodfired spices and dough cooking.

As seen on…

Charlotte and Kate’s workshops have been featured on BBC One, Channel 4, and Radio 2. Kate and Charlotte are experienced workshop leaders and they are also great fun – it should be a memorable and fun day.

The 1 day workshop including the most incredible curry lunch with tandoor oven cooked naan is £160.
