When it comes to cooking with BioLite gear, there may be no one more experienced than Hiroaki Ichihashi, a BioLite Customer and super fan living in Japan. He’s been cooking over our stoves in the backcountry since the beginning and continues to surprise us with just how creative his recipes are. He’s known for whipping up elaborate desserts on the CampStove, baking complicated bread recipes on his BaseCamp + Pizza Dome, and recreating famous dishes from around the world on his FirePit.

Today, we’re sharing a round up of 9 of our favorite recipe videos he’s made.  Most of which are in both Japanese and English and can easily be recreated to cook on any of our stoves.
