The beginnings

FIRE&FOOD was founded in 2002. At that time, almost no one in Germany knew what the term barbecue was. The already large number of different grills available at that time were explained to consumers, new grilling techniques were introduced and these were accompanied by many recipes for grilling. During this time, FIRE&FOOD was also involved in setting up various associations, as well as in developing and supporting a new retail sector, the grill specialist trade.

And then

After publishing two issues of FIRE&FOOD annually until 2011, the number was increased to three in 2012. In 2013, the first special was also offered as a fourth issue. The rapidly increasing demand for more FIRE&FOOD, especially from the growing number of subscribers, encouraged the publisher to publish the magazine quarterly, in addition to a special and two new formats, the bookazine series and the grill mag.
