"Forget what your parents told you about playing with fire. Michael Chiarello will teach you how to understand, master, and - above all - enjoy a return to cooking's primal roots. This is a revelatory and inspiring book." -- Chef Michael White
"Whether it's in a pizza oven or directly over a flame, wood-fire cooking brings an entirely new dimension to food. Live Fire takes summer meals to the next level. It'll have your neighbors coveting the delicious smell from down the road." -- Mario Batali
"There is nothing more soulful and satisfying than cooking over an open fire and Chiarello's LiveFire is the perfect guide. His style of cooking is a natural fit for open fire cooking." -- Marco Canora, Hearth Restaurant New York
"Michael has really outdone himself with Live Fire. Talk about technique, he covers everything from making a whole lamb on an iron cross to grilling pasta and meatballs. It's unreal." -- Emeril Lagasse
"Live Fire shines a bright light. This cookbook shares more than just the delicious recipes that have been expertly cooked over fire, it shares a timeless message of connection - of gathering around the ones you love to cook for and eat with. It seems only yesterday that Michael appeared at the kitchen door of Felidia hungry to learn, and has blossomed by cooking the food of his Italian heritage with a California sensibility. For him, food and the preparation of it tells a story of connection with the ones we treasure the most, and whether around a fire, or around the family table (as I always say), it is this very message of togetherness that resonates in each recipe found within this book's pages."-- Lidia Bastianich
"Live Fire is a masterwork, celebrating one of our most primal urges. Michael, you're a genius." -- Tyler Florence
