I thrilled to announce that I shall shortly be opening the doors of the BRISTOL FIRE SCHOOL - a new cookery school focussed on all aspects of live fire cooking. From wood fired ovens to barbecues, to fire pits and Dutch ovens I want to help people learn how to cook with fire properly. I spend my summers touring the country teaching people how to light better fires at all the best food and music festivals and have come to realise that the barrier to great fire-cooked food is feeling confident with the fire itself. Once you master the fire, it just becomes cooking. The Bristol Fire School has one aim, teaching people to Do Fire Better so they can cook better and eat better.
