Pizza Oven

Last month, Ryo finished work on the pizza oven, and it made its debut at our NPO Celebration Party. This week, Ryo and Bei's friends from Tokyo visited to help on the farm. We gave the pizza oven another go, this time cooking 4 different kinds of pizza's: tomato sauce, bacon and sausage; yellow sauce and bamboo shoots; shirasu (tiny translucent fish), and a sweet pizza with peanuts, chocolate, and marshmallow!

This yearly conference is a chance for people in the Hiroshima area to show off their handmade, wood-burning stoves. Aside from stove displays, conventions past have also featured cooking demonstrations using organic ingredients, booths, lectures, workshops, and musical performances.

PCV Celebrates New NPO Status

On March 15, Peace Culture Village received its NPO certification. We are now officially open for business!
