So the cover picture for those astute readers is not of Boneless Pork Chops with Honey Gremolata. But it is the Chapa which is one of the seven fires that Francis Mallmann talks about in his superb book Seven Fires – Grilling the Argentine Way. If you are a lover of food cooked over fire this is a must have book. Francis evocatively describes how cooking with wood is a constant learning curve. I wont try myself but will leave it to the man himself to describe.
“Cooking with wood fire is like going on a first date. It is something that you look forward to with great anticipation and a little anxiety. You can never know exactly what the conditions will be………every time you cook over wood outdoors, you are starting fresh in a strange kitchen.”
