Cooking and entertaining outdoors has really taken off over the past few years, and we expect this trend to only increase.
“An outdoor kitchen gives you ample opportunity to cook and eat outdoors, whatever the season, and as outdoor kitchens now come in a multitude of sizes and forms, you have more reason to get outside and make the most of your outdoor space, whether you have a large garden or a smaller patio. Outdoor kitchens can also include dining and relaxing space, perfect for creating a comfortable, fully functional space where you can enjoy cooking, dining and socialising all year round.“
The popularity of smokers continues to rise, but charcoal and grills remain king of the backyard! This trend is exemplified by the Morsø Forno Outdoor Oven – where you can be the envy of your friends by creating dishes such as roast beef, grilled steak, pizza, smoked salmon, tarts, bread, etc…
The outdoor cooking experience is becoming increasingly sophisticated with technically advanced and beautifully designed wood-fired products. To assist the cooking experience, a huge range of add-ons such as wood chips, meat rubs, novelty barbecue sauces, cooking tools, etc abound, and this will only grow in the coming months and years.
It’s important to consider how you’ll be using the space – will it be a space for intimate dinner parties, larger social gatherings or simply for relaxing family barbecues? This will not only determine elements like how much seating you’ll need, but also the size and capacity of the appliances you include to make sure you can cater for your needs. The area you have to work with is also an important consideration, though it is surprising what you can fit into a relatively small space. One of the most important points to think about, however, is what you’ll be cooking on and with the variety of cooking appliances on the market these days, you really are spoilt for choice.
There are always going to be a few considerations you’ll have to make when thinking about cooking outside. Obviously, things like Health and Safety are a given – don’t let children play too near any open flames or coals and always ensure that any food you’re cooking, especially meat, is properly cooked through. But it’s useful to take into account other factors – how many people will you be cooking for? Do you want to go beyond the realms of traditional outdoor cooking, moving away from hot dogs and burgers and maybe cook something a bit different? This way, you can accommodate for far more tastes and welcome more people to your outdoor space.
More households are now branching out from the traditional BBQ, and are looking at more versatile and aesthetically pleasing products such as the Morsø Outdoor Oven. The Outdoor Oven offers traditional barbequed food as well as allowing you to cook your very own pizza creations, or simply to act as a heat generator on a cold evening. Made of solid enamelled cast iron, this oven’s chic globular shape will make it an eye catching addition to any patio.
The Outdoor Firepit is always a crowd pleaser; use it for creating an inviting ambience at a get together or opt for the additional Grate to barbeque delicious food. Incorporating clean lines fused with functional Danish design, this product is also fashioned from solid enamelled cast iron, making it a durable purchase to enjoy for years to come.”
