There were a few close calls, but no one suffered any serious burns.
I had the pleasure of spending two weeks on Robson Street with chef Andrew Richardson and photographer Kevin Clark making pictures of Wood-fired, Italian-inspired dishes for the CinCin Ristorante cookbook.
It was all very Francis Mallmann-esque, but with fewer Argentinian root vegetables and more pasta.
For the styling, I sourced props from Speck + Stone in Hamilton, Vitreous Wares in Portland, Janaki Larsen in Vancouver, a guy offloading vintage camping plates down in Wichita, and various secondhand shops along Main Street.
We incorporated lots of wood, ash, charcoal, and whole ingredients straight from the grill.
