Craft Your Own Wood-Fired Pizza at Suzie’s Farm

Chef Jenn, local cooking school teacher (and Slow Food Urban San Diego board member) is joining forces with yet another local farm for a series of cooking classes.

This summer, Chef Jenn will be teaching wood fired oven pizza cooking at Suzie’s Farm. Suzie’s Farm is a 140-acre USDA-certified organic farm located 13 miles south of downtown San Diego. It grows more than 100 varieties of seasonal vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruits year-round. Classes take place in the farm’s beautiful outdoor event space.

These totally hands-on culinary adventures with Chef Jenn are a blast. You’ll get a tour of the farm, one-on-one instruction from a professional culinary instructor, and the opportunity to sit with new friends and enjoy the meal you created together. In this particularly class, you’ll handcraft your own whole wheat pizza dough made with local beer and top it with fresh meat and produce straight from Suzie’s Farm. By the time you depart, you’ll know a number of new and creative ways to incorporate delicious, wholesome ingredients into pizza recipes!
