Live fire and BBQ expert Genevieve Taylor is the author of 12 cookery books including the bestsellers Foolproof BBQ, Charred, a complete guide to vegetarian BBQ, The Ultimate Wood-fired Oven Cook book and Seared. Additionally, she writes regularly on live fire cooking in the national press and is a BBC Food Programme regular. She is one of the UK's most respected fire cooks.
A proud omnivore, Genevieve is on a constant mission to prove that great BBQ isn’t just about Man vs. Meat, although that said, her latest book, Seared, focuses on the science of cooking good meat over good fire.
She also runs the Bristol Fire School, a cookery school with the principal aim of helping people light better fires to cook better food.
When she’s not cooking outside, Genevieve can usually be found outside walking her dogs in the woods, growing a few good things to eat on her Bristol allotment and listening to an awful lot of music.
Love for Cheese: "When I'm not cooking with fire my favourite thing in the world to eat is cheese. I could eat cheese all of the day and all of the night. I actually think I could live on cheese. I cook so much for work that sometimes I just can't be bothered to cook for myself, that's when I turn to a plate of cheese. Usually accompanied by a glass of red wine."
