In connection to the opening of Askim Escape Pod artist and researcher Erik Sjödin cooked "Fire Soup" on a mobile kitchen produced within the project "We Still Carry The Fire".

"We Still Carry The Fire" revolves around mobile wood fired kitchens that provide opportunities for social interaction and cooking using fire. The kitchens are continually developed based on experiences from previous excursions.

In askim the fire soup was was cooked on a mobile rocket stove and a tenst stove which was eventually left to be integrated in "Askim Escape Pod". A "Fire Soup" is a hot and spicy soup cooked over fire using yellow, orange and red ingredients.

NOTE: It is generally not permitted to make fires in densely populated areas or during hot and dry summer months. Before making a fire: 1. Check with the fire department if it is allowed to make fire. 2. Don't make fires if it's dry and windy. Fire can spread rapidly. 3. Always have fire extinguishing equipment close by. 4. Always be at least two persons, in case something should happen. 5. Make sure you can call for help if there is an accident.
