About the Show
Man Fire Food features the inventive ways Americans cook with fire. From small campfires to creative custom-made grills and smokers, we visit home cooks, pitmasters, and chefs who are fascinated by fire and food.
The smoke signals take host Roger Mooking across the country, including the American South for different styles of regional barbecue, the Pacific Northwest for a tribal salmon bake, and New England for a unique seafood feast. Man Fire Food celebrates the passion for building and cooking with fire.
Roger has developed a culinary philosophy built on perfect execution of globally inspired culinary traditions. As a third generation restaurateur and chef, he began his formal training through the George Brown Culinary Management Program where he earned Top Student Honours diploma. He continued his training at Epic Dining Room in Toronto’s world renowned Royal York Hotel before consulting on several food and beverage openings.
