Today, the stone oven is completed! Please see the progress and tonight's party in the slide show. The base stones were piled up by intern-students for two days, and after that Yu chan has been working hard to make wooden model and piled up bricks. And finally, today he has completed all those work and we decided put fire in it. We also enjoy the grilled dishes completely :D.
I made pizza dough, and banana pound cake, and Yuzo, not only done the stone oven, but he also cook a great pork grill with rosemary and garlic, and grilled vegetable on it's side which soaked with juicy pork juice.
At dusk with warm spring air, when the sky became light purple and pink, we enjoy drinking beers and children immediately grabbed pizza which took out from the oven. Because of the high heat, and the power of far infrared radiation, the pizza was so crispy and very delicious comparing to my pizza cooked with small oven in my house.
I also enjoy talking with the people who we gathered tonight. All the stories were very interesting to me, like "Whale has a way to communicate each other across this globe with only four of them.", and also a story who went to stricken area of north east Japan to help/support victims. We also talked what we can do at our end. There's another story I want to share in this blog, so I'll write it tomorrow (or sometime soon).
The idea of "creating stone oven" just hit me before I came to KAIYU, and I clicked to buy "Stone oven DIY" book on amazon next day, then after that, I requested Yu chan to make one, and he did the rest :D. I am the one who hit on ideas, and Yu chan is who implement. What a great partnership?!?! Now, another dream comes true and we are so happy. We have new entreatment / activities during none-summer time at KAIYU. Gathering around the fire and eating yummy food,, it's just so gorgeous and luxurious. If you want to review "what is the real rich life", KAIYU is the best place to do it.
