River Cottage partners with Kadai Firebowls® by Wilstone and launch new range at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Based on stand RHW617, Kadai will showcase their award-winning fire pit barbecues, exclusive show offers, live fire cooking demos and new products.

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s right hand man and founding Head Chef of River Cottage, Gill Meller will be cooking breakfast on the Kadai Firebowl at 9.15am on press day, 21 May.

Gill’s cooking has always been deeply rooted in nature and represents the ethos that underpins River Cottage. Cooking on fire is one step closer to nature and has always been Gill’s passion. Gill says, “Cooking outdoors on fire gives me great practical and professional satisfaction. Stepping out of the kitchen to cook your own food is an adventure in technique and taste. Understanding the interplay of wood, fire and flame deepens your cooking experience, contributes to the final flavour and places you directly in the landscape in which the ingredients are gathered. Part of cooking on fire is to be aware of where you are in the landscape and I take my inspiration from that.”

Christo, Co-founder and Managing Director of Wilstone says “The Kadai Firebowls change the way that we enjoy outdoor living. Whether you are cooking for friends on the bowl or simply relaxing and enjoying the warmth of the fire these spectacular centrepieces are a must have addition to any size garden."
