Reviews about this book

  • Stonesoup

    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!

Publishers Text

Finding Fire introduces the curious cook to the possibilities of food when combined with the most basic of cooking techniques, fire. Author Lennox Hastie of acclaimed Sydney restaurant Firedoor, draws on his international experience to present over 90 recipes that equip readers with the confidence to connect with produce, learn instinct and allow them to take their own journey to master the art of simplicity in cookery over the most natural heat source and ingredient on the planet. 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.
