Outdoor cooking has been Saffron’s passion since she was young, often choosing to go camping and cook hearty meals over fire rather than stay inside, watch TV, and eat take-out. Today she is the driving force of Bush Cooking which shares the skills of cooking outdoors.

After spending years as a global logistics executive, she decided to follow her passion and pursue her love of the culinary arts and the outdoors on a full-time basis — making the leap from being a successful barbecue, steak, and Dutch oven competitor to full time evangelizing the art, science, and passion of outdoor cooking.

Saffron has also had the privilege of managing the Australia & New Zealand site for Allrecipes.com, helping home cooks discover outstanding recipes and proving them with a powerful stream of digital content to improve their talents, results, and confidence in the kitchen.

Now, through Bush Cooking, Saffron hopes to bring the same results and confidence to cooks in the areas of live fire cooking, barbecue, and general cooking outdoors.
