Hearth cooking is romantic, cosy and cool. And it does not depend on the weather, like barbecuing does. That is a big advantage. In addition, cooking on a wood fire gives the food a delicious flavor. There are different ways to cook or grill in the fireplace. These methods are derived from the ways in which, in times when there was not yet a stove, cooking was done in the fireplace. In addition, use was made of all kinds of fireplace accessories. Fireplace tools were necessary to properly regulate the fire for the preparation of the food. Fireplace accessories were also needed to prepare the food and to hang the food or the pan in front of the fire. These antique fireplace accessories can still be used for cooking in the fireplace. The advantage of antique fireplace accessories is that these accessories are often beautifully made and attest to a great craftsmanship. It is also a nice idea to build on age-old cooking methods.
