The essential guide to wood oven cookery.
The wood oven revolution is here.
Anyone with an outside space, from a city centre balcony to a leafy green country garden, can pick up an outdoor oven and start cooking. The range available is expanding all the time - catering for every budget and skill level - and yet until now there hasn't been a book that offers an all-round guide to cooking on the new kit on the block.
Fired fills that gap with aplomb. The book shows you how to cook the finest pizza known to man of course, but it goes much further, offering recipes for meat joints, one pot stews, breads and even desserts. It holds the reader's hand on the journey to outdoor oven expertise, showing just how versatile and exciting outdoor wood oven cookery can be.
Jon is the co-founder of Grillstock festivals and smokehouses, and the co-author of a cookery book of the same name. The first annual Grillstock festival was launched in 2010 and attracts over 17,000 visitors each year. Grillstock also operates five BBQ joints around the country serving smoked meat to more than 5000 people each week.
BBQ is his one passion and beer is the other. He has been brewing craft beer at home for a decade and even has a full draft beer set up in his garden shed with beer taps mounted on the door.
Jon has a no-nonsensewriting style that speaks from the heart and shoots from the hip (or, in this case, hop), making his text as entertaining as it is informative and accessible. Above all, he writes about what he believes in with a passion, commitment and authenticity that is infectious.
