Sharing the ethos of quality food and quality time, Silver Fern Farms and Escea’s outdoor fireplaces bring food and flame together.
As New Zealand’s largest grass-fed red meat company, Silver Fern Farms is renowned for producing quality meat. With a vision to being the world’s most successful, and most sustainable grass-fed red meat company, they employ a scienced-backed grading process for their beef, to guarantee only the highest standards of taste and tenderness – from pasture to plate.
With extensive options in their fast-fry range, we didn’t need to look far to find the perfect cut of meat to flame grill to perfection on the grills of Escea’s outdoor fireplaces.
Our range of outdoor cooking fires were born out from love of storytelling – from stories of the day told around the kitchen bench at dinnertime, to the stories of times long past told around the campfire glow. Because ultimately, nothing brings people together like food and flame.
We got together with Silver Fern Farms to find the most delicious cuts of beef, lamb and venison and recipes to try out on our range of wood fires.
Escea EK Outdoor Fireplace Kitchen
Prep time: 20 minutes to chop wood to size | Warm-up time: Up to 40 mins of stoking and refueling | Wood: Hardwood (Macrocarpa, Pine, Beech) | Cooking Methods: Grill plate, Flat plate, Meat Hooks, Pizza Oven.
The EK Outdoor Fireplace Kitchen is Escea’s most sophisticated outdoor cooking fire. In fact, it was developed with the help of award-winning chef, Greg Piner, whose extensive knowledge, experience and passion for flame grilling helped guide Escea to develop the ultimate outdoor fireplace - with all the functionality that could be found in the kitchen, in the outdoors.
The EK comes equipped with an ember generator and 13-point adjustable levels to help you achieve the perfect temperature, as well as cooking plates, grills, meat hooks, and even a pizza oven accessory.
With all this at your fingertips, the EK was designed for serious flame grillers, and just like the kitchen, it’s become the heart of outdoor spaces, beckoning friends and family – like moths to a flame.
Of course, a quality cooking appliance calls for premium quality meat, and nothing oozes quality like the King of all cuts, Silver Fern Farms Beef Eye Fillet.
