Cornelius veakins

Wood, Fire & smoke Consultant

 

 

Born in South Africa, matured in France, rendered to the UK.

 

After all my years of commuting, waiting in airports, nonsensical meetings, office politics and general corporate bullshit – I decided to chuck it all in and follow my instincts and dreams.

 

It has been hard, and sometimes disastrous, but through my own endeavours I have created my own niche in the world. Simply, I love what I do and I want everyone to love fire cooking as much as me!

 

I spend my time trying to change the way we all think about barbecuing and outdoor cooking to show the wonderful world of wood, fire and smoke cooking.
