I’m not a chef. I am a traveller, horseradish whisperer and author of Greenmoxie’s Practical Guide to Sustainable Living. I grew up in Durban, South Africa where there are no seasons, just one glorious summer so naturally, we cook outside. A lot!
Mum, bless her, hated cooking. When I was old enough to reach the counter top, she eagerly taught me how to make spaghetti in the hopes that I would save the family from the inevitability that was scurvy. So I learned to cook from a Julia Childs cookbook I found propping up the broken end of the bookcase. While Julia may not have been a great reference for cooking on an open fire, she certain fanned the flames of my culinary passions.
I spent a decade of my life traveling, enjoying the wonder that is international cuisine, perpetually drawn to food cooked on fires. From the tandoori ovens of India to the street woks of Thailand and the kebab barbecues of the Middle East, I collected these recipes and tips that I am so honored to share here with you.
Whether you are camping, hiking, climbing, paddling, biking or lazing in your backyard, you should be eating wonderful meals with friends around that fundamental symbol of warmth and comfort; the campfire.
And if, for even the briefest moment, I am able to share a recipe with you that makes that moment more enjoyable, that makes a meal memorable, then I will consider this a life well lived.
