“If anyone says that Netflix cannot change your life, they are lying.”
Derek first fell in love with cooking when he was on the couch watching TV, while procrastinating school work in college. He found a documentary following a South American chef and his adventures cooking with fire, and It was love at first sight. He had to try it himself.
When Derek and his wife got a fire pit as a wedding present, they decided to put it to good use. The first meal they cooked was a nice skirt steak with some homemade chimichurri sauce. It must have been beginners luck, because it tasted delicious. From that moment on, he decided that if he was grilling, he was grilling over a live fire.
They started the Instagram, Over the Fire Cooking, to document their fire cooking adventures. Soon enough, fellow fire enthusiasts were sending them photos and videos of them cooking crazy creations and inventions. What started as a personal page became a community of influencers working together to promote fire cooking.
