Floyd on Fire: Cooking Outdoors Reviews
Keith Floyd was a terrific food writer and you get the impression that this is a book that he really wanted to write. Somewhat peculiarly, it was published by the BBC but not as a tie-in: Floyd starred in his third TV series that year but that was Floyd on Food, a title rather similar to that of his first, pre-television, book Floyd's Food. It's somewhat anomalous then - he never made a barbecuing TV series, perhaps he (or his producer) though there wasn't enough demand or interest in doing it for a whole series.This short book is broken into nine sections, including both a preface and an introduction! These set the tone for the book admirably; one is the story of his first cooking experience as a teenager - freshly caught fish over a campfire - and the second a tale from his years living in the Vaucluse. The other sections are mostly grouped around principal ingredients - meat, poultry, fish, offal, vegetables, sauces - but one also covers the different types of braai available (omitting gas fires) and the basics of working with them. He also includes hearths in this list and includes one or two slow-cooking dishes in the recipes to be enjoyed by the fireside in winter. Each section is introduced by another vignette from his life and the recipes are interspersed with boxes of helpful hints - applications of various herbs, etc.It's the best book of its type that I've read.
