AWESOME FOOD EVENT with our guest chef & bake team:
Manjit + Jagjit Bali of Elora
This Saturday June 20th
Approx 11am Lunch: $9pp
Baking 3 different types of naan accompanied by a paneer or chutney.
The Bali’s have created feature food at the KIPP oven for the past two years and the food was great so they’re back again by popular demand!
Anyone who’s enjoyed their fresh creations will tell you that it was so great that it sold out very very quickly!
So be sure to come on by the oven, bring a chair, your favourite beverage and enjoy a chit-chat while you smell the delicious offerings before enjoying the fresh flavours yourself! First come, first serve!
KIPPelora is now in its fourth summer of community bakes wow!!
We are formally inviting you to join KIPP this Friday June 5th for our firestarter session commencing at 6:30pm.
During this workshop you will learn how to make a fire in the oven, all the particulars of how to successfully run the oven and finally cap off the evening with learning to bake your own pizza! We will provide the training, dough, sauce and pepperoni and if there is anything else you would like on your pizza (incl cheese) please bring it with you to curate your own divine slice of heaven (we mean pizza!) For more info see this link.
There will be a community bake Saturday June 6th morning from 9-12pm.
Feel free to bring your own baked goods to give the oven a spin. If you made some for your family and some for KIPP to sell that would be swell! No pressure. (can you email us to let us know you are coming?)
