Public Wood-fired Suppers: Early Harvest

These 3 hour wood-fired dinners are designed for folks who enjoy rustic comfort food and want to watch Jillyanna prepare delicious wood-fired dishes in the wood-fired oven, smoker, and grill. These dinners do not include recipes, but guests are welcome to help prepare dressings and sauces and ask questions. These classes are weather dependent. If pouring rain prevents us from holding classes, we will either reschedule or refund tickets.

Meet Jillyanna

Jillyanna (Jill Strauss) has worked in professional restaurant kitchens throughout New England and has studied Italian cooking with famous cookbook author Giuliano Hazan in Verona and fourth-generation pizzaiolo Enzo Coccia in Naples. In 2012, Jill renovated her own private kitchen and picturesque patio to create an elegant indoor and outdoor classroom where she can share her Italian-inspired recipes and woodfired cooking techniques with students from all over the world.

Located in picturesque Cape Porpoise, Maine

Jillyanna’s facility includes three ovens: a Mugnaini woodfired oven, a Miele electric oven and a Viking gas oven. Classes take place inside the teaching kitchen and outside of the kitchen on a bluestone patio. There are several spacious marble, granite and cherry wood work stations as well as plenty of stools and chairs. Classes take place rain or shine.
