Hang Fire Smokehouse Announce Cookbook Deal!

This isn’t breaking news.  I’m certain that many of you already know but I am still thrilled to share this news with you.  Anybody that has read my blog would know that Hang Fire Smokehouse are incredible.  They were voted ‘Best Street Food’ by the BBC, launched Wales’ first craft soda and obviously cook the most incredible Barbecue food – you should do anything they can to go and eat their food.  However, I realise that this is not always possible and so the announcement that they are releasing their very own cookbook is incredibly exciting.  Now you can cook their food at home!   Continue reading Hang Fire Smokehouse Announce Cookbook Deal!

FRANKLIN BARBECUE – A MEAT-SMOKING MANIFESTO

The book is here!  Pre-ordered months ago and eagerly anticipated so that I can cook excellent barbecue – Franklin Barbecue: A Meat Smoking Manifesto finally arrived a week or two ago.  Why am I only telling you about it now?  Well, I’ve been busy.  But this is not a review.  I haven’t cooked anything in the book yet and so it would be unfair to review it. Once I have, I may write a separate post giving my assessment but I’m guessing it will be great.

If you haven’t heard of Franklin BBQ… Shame on you! Franklin BBQ is arguably the most popular BBQ restaurant and although I am yet to try the food myself, I have heard great things.  I strongly suggest that you look them up and if you ever have the opportunity… Try their food.

With summer fast approaching and the sun beginning to show itself, I am looking forward to the opportunity to barbecue more often.  I know many of the hardcore barbecuers will cook outside rain or shine, but I struggle.  In the coming months, I hope to barbecue often and I will be happy to share my experiences with you.  In particular, the recipes in this book!

Have you already used this book?  Let me know what you think 🙂

If you would like to purchase the book, you can find it here and perhaps in other places too.

Book Review: Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food.

If I am honest, calling this a review would be unfair.  I don’t know whether the book is well written and I don’t plan on going into detailed analysis of the entire book.  All I can say is whether or not the food looks good.  It’s more of a shout out!  I like the book and if you like tasty food… You should definitely take a look.

Most of Jamie Oliver’s (or any celebrity chef) cook books are conscious about promoting healthy eating.  While I think that people shouldn’t be encouraged to eat unhealthily, I do believe chefs should release more books like this.  ‘Comfort Food’ gets me excited about cooking and eating which is important.  The food looks incredible and I get excited about every recipe.
