Trendspotting: Fireplace Cooking Makes a Comeback

Have You Ever Tried Fireplace Cooking?

The first time I saw Alice Waters lovingly coddle an egg in her roaring kitchen fireplace, I thought she was crazy. But lo and behold, fireplace cooking is actually making a comeback, as witnessed by cooking equipment retailers, best-selling open-flame cookbooks, and a growing number of restaurants with live fires. I don't doubt the deliciousness of a flame-licked lamb chop or a charred slice of artisan bread, but growing up in humid Houston, TX, we mostly used our fireplace as decoration and storage. What about you — have you cooked out of a fireplace?

I've never had the opportunity to try cooking over an open flame personally, but my dad has a grill for the wood-burning fireplace and one of our family's favorite meals has always been fireplace-grilled steaks. Mmmm...

On her Christmas special, Giada cooked a minestrone soup over the fireplace at her Aunt Rafi's house in Aspen. It looked amazing! Did anyone else watch this?
