Man Fire Food features the inventive ways Americans cook with fire. From small campfires to creative custom-made grills and smokers, we visit home cooks, pit masters and chefs who are fascinated by fire and food. The smoke signals take host Roger Mooking across the country, including the American South region for different styles of regional barbecue and the Pacific Northwest region for a tribal salmon bake. It’s a celebration of the passion for cooking with fire.

Roger Mooking is equal parts chef, TV personality, musician, and to top it off husband and father to three girls! Roger juggles family life and his career with ease, grace and with an added bonus, a charming personality!
Having earned a reputation as one of Canada’s premier chefs, Roger has developed a culinary philosophy built on the perfect execution of globally inspired culinary traditions. As a third-generation restaurateur and chef, Roger began his formal training through the George Brown Culinary Management Program where he earned Top Student Honors. He continued his training at Epic Dining Room in Toronto’s world-renowned Royal York Hotel before co-owning and consulting on many food and beverage operations. Since then, he has been the subject of numerous television and print features internationally.
Roger is also a talented recording artist and has combined his love for food and music with the creation of his own unique music project. For Roger, music and the epicurean world are seamless. They both feed the body and the soul; it is all food in one form or another. He now has two music albums under his belt: Soul Food and Feedback.
Roger’s first cookbook, Everyday Exotic: The Cookbook, which was published in 2011, quickly snagged reviewers’ attention and won many prestigious awards and recognitions.
He is now the star of Man Fire Food on Asian Food Channel.
With three restaurants, multiple TV shows, his own album and a cookbook, is there anything Roger can’t accomplish?
