The Chimenea Cook Book and User's Guide

£4.99

Product description

The chimenea (literally "chimney" in Spanish) can be traced back over a thousand years to Mayan times. The Mayan Indians were a nomadic tribe native to the mountains of Mexico and they learned that the wet clay scooped from the floors of caves could be fired and made into vessels suitable for cooking. The simple shape and efficient draw of the chimenea made it an excellent heater, as well as a superbly effective outdoor oven, flatbread maker and insect repellent.;This comprehensive chimenea guide is crammed with specially adapted recipes, hints and tips, upkeep and maintenance advice and trouble-shooting information. There are sections on hot smoking, clay pot cooking, tagines, the Burmese barbeque and pizza oven recipes, as well as dinner party menus and vegetarian dishes. There is also a chapter on chocolate and suggested drinks to accompany the outdoor dining experience.
