James Strawbridge judges Game cooking Competition
James Strawbridge survives the appalling weather at Newark Park on October 13th. Kotlich cooking has never been so tough.
Five contestants braved the weather conditions on the top of the Cotswold to see who could produce the best Game dish cooked over an open fire. The "can do" spirit and amazing bravado shown by the contestants was fantastic.
Enamel fire pits - simple solutions
The growing popularity of firepits, which is best and what can you burn in them?
When choosing your fire pit you need to decide if you are going to cook over it and if so how big does it need to be? There is also the question of what you need to burn in it, have you got a good supply and what is going to be its main use, keeping warm or cooking? Are you going to move it about a lot, does it need to go undercover in winter and is it safe for children?
My two guiding themes are always usefullness and look. So it should be nice to look at and very practical, according to your needs.
