A culinary bonfire that brings people together!

Fire cooking is a feast for all the senses. From their various trips to fire kitchens all over the world, Monika Di Muro and Chris Bay brought back traditional and modern techniques, surprising and often unusual dishes that need few utensils and can be prepared on the open fire with easily available ingredients. The incomparable experience of cooking with fire transforms even preparatory steps into an extraordinary event. The recipes are geared to all types of diets, seasons, and weather conditions, are diverse and balanced at the same time, and even delicious desserts and rarities find their way to the hearth.

The theoretical part takes a detailed look at the fire cooking craft and its related sensual experiences. The over 80 dishes of the recipe chapter are prepared in seven different places of power. Some are vegan or vegetarian, others contain meat or fish, they inspire starters, main courses, and desserts and carry melodious names such as glow sausage, fire bread salad, paper fish, or egg carpet.
