The Fish

Being the avid and devoted burning kitchen reader that you are, I’m sure you know about my recent love of fire (see initial spark here) I’ve only just realised this blog is called burning kitchen, huzzah how appropriate. I feel like Nigel Slater, or some format of ‘proper’ food blogger tonight. It’s been a mental long few days at work, and I’m sat here feeling quite good about myself for the first time in a bit.

Noma thing, but not in anyway

I’ve been watching too many videos on noma. Not heard of them? clicky here They do a 89 million course menu of ‘things’ They have the best restaurant in the galaxy and they do things a little different. Heston goes science-tastic, chemicals, gasses, all kinds of magic. There is something about the guy at Noma that excites me. Everything he serves seems to be really simple and connected to the land (as hippy tastic as that may sound). You’ll get a single spring onion. But it will be a GLORIOUS spring onion and taste wonderful. It seems more honest than... View Article
