I truly love this kitchen, a great fire hearth, where the fish is smoked from the fire that is kept going all day, you could pretty much cook anything you like over the open flames. The “grub” box is fully stocked at all times and the spice rack is well equipped. Tea time in the evenings is always with Johnny cakes made fresh daily.

VIEW FROM CROOKED TREE VILLAGE: BUSH KITCHEN
What is a bush kitchen? A bush kitchen is really a temporary shelter hidden in the bushes where a hunter or poacher can hide or store poached smoke meat or fish for an extended period of time. But bush kitchen was a normal part of my childhood in Crooked Tree Village; it provided all the inspiration for my culinary skills today.
I really miss this part of my childhood. Sometimes I feel cooped up inside a big stuffy modern kitchen. The food in this bush kitchen is fantastic and that’s all that really matters.
