Open Fire

"The Fall Cookout"


OPEN FIRE (10 x 30′) is a rustic outdoor cooking series featuring acclaimed Chefs Rob Rossi and Craig Harding creating delicious, innovative dishes over multiple fires. The series spans all four seasons as the Chefs heat things up in the fresh days of spring through to the crisp cold of snowbound winter. As more people than ever before are cooking at home with close friends and family, OPEN FIRE provides incredible cooking recipes and tips for slow-roasted dishes and searing specialties. With a relaxing and chill vibe in front of the crackling fires, Chefs Rob and Craig make OPEN FIRE a warm welcome to the great and hearty outdoors.

Episode Synopsis:
As fall sets in, Rob and Craig crank up a citrus salad by grilling whole radicchios over flame, and tossing golden, foraged chanterelle mushrooms in a cast iron pot over the fire. The chefs' favoured plancha is the ideal temperature and surface for grilling a Tomahawk steak to perfection. For dessert, a spread of classic crepes only need a flash in the pan before they are ready to eat.
