Lost Art Of
Open Fire Cooking


About Us

Campfire Cafe was originally a temporary series to hold a primetime spot on the RFD-TV network. A spur-of-the-moment adventure featuring producer-director Pamela Alford’s recipes and her production crew’s love of cooking in the great outdoors. It was so enjoyed by viewers of all ages that the network requested more episodes. Originally the TV show had a different host, with Pamela and co-producer Larry Wiseheart behind the scenes filming, directing, editing, and promoting. After a few seasons, the two stepped in front of the camera to mix it up with more family recipes and round out a decade of broadcast.

We met people from all walks of life while producing the show, and enjoyed teaching others the valuable life skill of open fire cooking. Thanks to all our loyal viewers who supported Campfire Cafe. We hope you enjoy these archived episodes because outdoor cooking never goes out of style!
