Hi everyone,

I stumbled across this forum today while browsing on the web about live fire cooking.

I am an enthusiastic home cook, and I love sourcing, cooking and eating good food. Game preparation and cooking is a particular area of interest.   

My hobbies include processing in various forms, so I have tried my hand at everything from bread making, jam making, marmalade, pickles, sauces, fermentation (sour pickles and sauerkraut currently on the go), charcuterie, smoking (hot and cold), etc. Cheese-making is next on my list of things to try :)

I also love cooking outdoors over fire  (or indoors in the fireplace if the weather is foul - I live in the UK).

I'm hoping to get some great ideas from the forum.

To be honest, I had never heard of Francis Mallman until recently when John Torode did a tour of Argentina which was shown on TV over here in the UK.

Wow! it looked awesome!

I now have a couple of Mallman's books on my Amazon wishlist - which means I'll need to sort out the bookshelves yet again.
