We’ve searched the internet for some tasty recipes that are sure to warm you and your family up this December.

Top Tip

If you thought that the only food that could be cooked on your wood stove were stews and casseroles, think again! This Korean chicken recipe is perfect for the more adventurous foodie, with plenty of flavours to indulge in. We think that these chicken pieces go perfectly on a baguette, but they’d go just as nicely with rice, new potatoes or a fresh salad.

Apple & Squash Pulled Pork Casserole

It’s rather sweet, but we think that just makes it all the more tasty. Pulled pork is great when cooked in a wood stove too, so this one’s a guaranteed winner.

With lots of veg and, of course, a fair helping of British beef, this is comfort food at its best. Keep in mind this one takes over an hour to cook, so allow yourself plenty of time.

Homemade Bread

Did you know you can make delicious fresh bread on your wood stove? The beauty of making your own bread is that you can be really creative with what you put in it – we’re thinking honey, dried fruit or even spices if you’re feeling particularly adventurous. There’s a gluten-free option on here too, so everyone can enjoy some tasty home-cooked bread.
