"Firehouse Cooking throws cold water on the notion that the nation’s
firefighters simply gobble chili and fried hamburgers between runs….it’s recipes
may ring a bell for many other folks, especially those with a run-and-jump
lifestyle that leaves little time for preparing meals."
William Allen, ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH

"…Firehouse Cooking…has received rave reviews from firefighters all over the country.
Palm Beach is no exception."
Skippy Harwood, PALM BEACH DAILY NEWS
"I first came across Firehouse Cooking being mentioned on an Emergency Service news
list from Connell (I think that's where it was) when I was working on a University Fire
and Rescue Squad at Sussex University.
At the time we were putting on bar-b-ques each term for the students, to heighten
their awareness of fire safety in their accommodation and also the fact that we were
there to assist. I have used the book on several occasions, both then and since, to get
recipes for BBQ side dishes.
Several of my friends have asked to borrow the book when they are doing gatherings.
My, now well thumbed, copy lives in my caravan. I am involved in the sport of Horse
Driving Trials and, being a Bar Manager, get the job of organizing food and beer for the
gang. Ten or twelve hungry course workers often find themselves eating food from your
book at the end of the day.
If you are ever in the area drop in!
Take care and have fun."
