Cooking outdoors gives a special feeling, and surely it also makes the food taste a little better? Our ancestors cooked all their food outdoors, and surely it is the legacy of those who make us enjoy a little extra to cook outdoors, in a fireplace or over an open fire. Here it is not enough to throw a gratin in the oven and go and do something else while baking. Cooking outdoors requires us to get involved and keep track of the fire, check the children who play around the stove or fire, check the food so that it does not burn - all this gives us a different contact with the cooking, which can sometimes be missing when we Cook food indoors.

Heat that is emitted from a fire is excellent to cook outdoors at any time of the year. In addition, the stove becomes a hub to gather around while the food is cooked, and in this way you really make the cooking something central and not something going on in the periphery while the rest of the company sips on the champagne.
Surely it tastes different?
Food that is cooked outdoors tastes differently, we usually say. And there is a lot in it. It has a lot to do with the food being cooked faster and at higher temperatures. It also has to do with the food for natural causes getting a smokier taste when cooked in direct contact with open fire.
Pizza for real
Take pizza for example, which is difficult to get perfect in a regular housekeeping oven. In a stove, cooked on stones, you bake the pizza at a very high temperature for a relatively short time, and the result is a crispy bottom and topping that is baked to perfection by quickly exposed to high heat.
Pizza is great for cooking in a baking oven, as Faster Greta, but also becomes excellent over open fire, for example in Lillhälla, our combined fireplace and barbecue. However, the prerequisite for baking pizza over an open fire is that you first put a pizza stream on the grid, which you heat up to high temperature before putting on the pizza. Such a stone can also be used to cook other foods, such as fish and vegetables.

If you want to grill meat, mushrooms and vegetables, an open fire is difficult to beat. Also fish, wrapped in foil and accompanied by some spices and lemon, tastes wonderfully good after a few minutes above open fire. When the flames almost just reach up to the grid develops a slightly sweaty taste, that grill flavor that is so difficult to put your finger on but that can only be achieved when cooking outdoors over an open fire. Both Lillhälla and Faster Greta Are equipped with barbecue grids, which make grilling outdoors both fun and safe.
