Review quotes

“No grill? No problem. Marcoux, a food historian, takes us back to paleo times with this outstanding book about cooking over a campground-style wood fire.”

“Paula Marcoux is a connoisseur of fire. She knows how to build one and how to find its sweet spot, and has deep respect for our culinary ancestors, early humans who first took to flame. Her new cookbook, "Cooking with Fire," is a refreshing departure from the pile of grilling cookbooks on the market.”

"As much a DIY guide to building heat-harnessing structures as it is a food history lesson with recipes.”
“Methodical, authoritative, encyclopedic, Marcoux’s book blazes a mesmerizing trail for contemporary cooks back through the hundreds of millennia since humans first used fire to transform their food.”
