Natural Building Workshop: Summer Kitchen

19 June, 2023 @ 8:00 AM 23 June, 2023 @ 5:00 PM EDT

Summer kitchens – outdoor kitchens – appear in many cultures around the globe. In some places, outdoors was (and still IS) the only place for a kitchen. Here in North America, they are considered luxury amenities. We all know that food cooked outside over a wood or charcoal fire just tastes better, right?

We will be adding a lovely summer kitchen to the main Zone 1 garden, where it will be surrounded by veggies, flowers, and herbs. This summer kitchen was designed by my son Nick, with a little help from me, while he was hospitalized and homeschooling via Zoom. Unfortunately, he won’t be able to participate in the build, but I think he will be well pleased with the photos and videos of the finished project. And when he returns home, I’ll cook his first meal in this kitchen

We’re going to build a cob oven and install a wood-fired grill and an eating area. The design calls for water collection from the green roof, and a stone floor. The overall design is inspired partly by the summer kitchen at The Guest House Bulgara in Vetren, Bulgaria, where we stayed with our fantastic hosts Vili and Nikolai in November 2019.
