Some of us have recently returned from a trip in northern Germany, where we visited Bergen am Rügen, Stralsund (including the Nikolaikirche and the Kulturhistorische Museum), Bad Doberan and the Doberaner Münster (including King Albrecht’s resting place) plus Rostock with the museum in Kloster zum Heiligen Kreuz (including effigies of Rostock knights and burghers). It was a good trip with loads of laughs, some beer and good food. It was a good opportunity for some of our members to actually see the king and to get a taste of the wholesome German cuisine!

I came across this free, downloadable publication on how to build traditional clay ovens – it will come in handy when we finally decide to build one for the company! Plus, there are loads of other resources on the web, such as these: The Bread Oven: Symbol of Colonial Liberty/A Large Clay Oven, Building and Using a Medieval-Style Hemispherical Bake Oven and The clay oven – how to build a clay oven in eight steps. The page even includes pizza recipes!
