Outdoor Kitchen

IMG_0850

Stuck in a sweaty kitchen on a gorgeous summer day was torture in the past. I can remember yearning to just run out the kitchen doors to enjoy the beautiful day and never come back.

Well as luck has it, about 10 years later I have left the kitchen with thoughts of not returning. But I do itch to be back in a professional kitchen every once in awhile…

As the summer wraps up so does the incredible catering adventures I had through Fire Roasted Catering this 2014 season. What a blast it was to set up an open air kitchen brigade and cook some of the most amazing looking and tasting food I have ever cooked before. Local animals, local produce, and everything cooked on an open fire right down to the dessert and coffee. Though not easy work lifting 100+ pound iron cooking trays and contraptions, being engulfed in smoke at times, and meeting a strict timeframe, it sure was rewarding at the end when all the guests “oo” and “ahh” over the culinary theatre and performance of our setup. Oh and a shower never felt so good!!
