How To Grill Everything
We've mentioned before how there are the kind of cookbooks that share wonderful recipes and pictures, and there are the kind of cookbooks that have wonderful pictures and recipes but will also actually teach you how to cook. Mark Bittman's How to Grill Everything is the second kind.
The latest addition to Bittman's acclaimed "How to Cook Everything" Series is the ultimate guide for all types of grilling. Inside the 576-page hardback you'l find 1,000 recipes with variations, as well as Bittman's practical advice on grilling basics and best practices. Bittman writes with the simple clarity of a person who knows his subject well, making his instruction easy to follow and understand. And while there is a broad collection of recipes meant to illustrate the endless possibilities of the grill, the subject matter is broken down for readers to focus on whatever areas they like.
Recipes cover every part of the meal, including appetizers, seafood, meat and poultry, vegetables (including vegetarian mains), and even desserts. Plenty of quick, high-heat recipes will get dinner on the table in short order (Spanish-Style Garlic Shrimp, Green Chile Cheeseburgers); low and slow "project" recipes (Texas-Style Smoked Brisket, Pulled Pork with Lexington BBQ Sauce) are ideal for leisurely weekend cookouts. You?ll also find unexpected grilled treats like avocado, watermelon, or pound cake, and innovative surprises (like cooking meat loaf or from-scratch Rosemary Olive Oil Bread on the grill) to get the most out of every fire.
