    Simple food brought to life by smoke and fire. Although not the best book if you’re looking for something quick on a Monday night!

Lennox explains the techniques behind creating a good quality fire, and the effect of using different types of wood to enhance the natural flavours of the ingredients. Recipes are divided by food type: seafood, vegetables, meat and sweet. Lennox Hastie's inspirational story is woven through the thread of history and demonstrates how fire is used through so many different cultures. Finding Fire provides you with the most fascinating background and insight into creating and cooking with Fire.
