The stakes are high, and the excitement is even higher as these fire-loving chefs demonstrate their prowess and creativity over open flames.

The British Live Fire Cooking Championships is proudly supported by two fervent champions of Ludlow Food Festival and live fire cooking: Kadai and Love Logs. Kadai, known for their beautifully crafted fire bowls and BBQ accessories, brings a touch of rustic elegance to any outdoor cooking experience. Love Logs, the go-to provider for sustainably sourced firewood, ensures that each flame burns bright and clean. Together, these passionate businesses are creating a platform for chefs to showcase their skills and bring their fiery visions to life.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Ludlow Castle, the Championships promise an unforgettable experience for both contestants and spectators.
