Technique: Pierrade


Cooking on slate is a primitive cooking experience with a satisfying outcome.  One can buy a natural piece of slate at a rockery store or home improvement store.  Rinse the stone well.  To "cure" the slate it needs to be heated slowly, lean the stone against the wall of the fireplace as the fire begins.   When the fire turns to coals, rub oil on the slate using a basting brush.
