The History of Hot Rock Grilling
Not surprisingly, people have used stones for cooking for millennia. We perfected this ancient method for modern diners who want a multi-sensory, healthful restaurant experience. At ‘love on the rocks we are bringing back a tradition started by the ancient Maya’s in Belize by using a modernized cooking technique that is surely thousands of years old.
It is the quality of stone to hold heat and to radiate it at even temperatures over its surface that makes it ideal for cooking. Because of its origins, lava rock is particularly suited for this style of cooking. The lava rock is the product of very slow cooling to hardness.
When heated during 8 hours to about 700º F in a modern oven, it retains this high heat throughout a meal.
Diners can cook, talk, sip wine, turn and slice an entrée, and talk (and sip) some more. There is no outside heat-source – yet the stone remains hot. We hope you will enjoy this brand new cooking technique that is as old as Rock…
