In this fascinating episode (it's a little longer than usual), Charles speaks to Mark Parr, Founder & Creative Director of London Log Co. As an intrinsic part of the culinary wood and charcoal supply chain in the UK, Mark talks about his passion for forestry, his intimate account of the growth of fire cooking, the chefs involved and how it shifted from being a food cult to a food culture. In addition, Mark discusses fire cooking across all cuisines, food and wood pairings, sustainability, street food, the new wave of sophistication in fire cooking and how food history, trust and craft are all at the heart of this food cooking movement.
