Head outdoors with the latest entry in Bittman's decade-spanning "How To Cook Everything" series. Featuring more than 1,000 recipes for grilled foods (e.g., Madeira-style beef skewers, tofu steaks, rack of lamb with sesame dipping sauce, sugared peaches with candied ginger ice cream), the collection aims to meet the needs of both grilling experts and novices. Bittman's introduction covers essential grilling concepts and techniques (e.g., buying a grill, direct vs. indirect heat, smoking) in a straightforward, even-handed way—readers won't feel any guilt if they choose to save time by using a gas grill or charcoal briquettes, for example.
VERDICT Offering value and practicality, this is an excellent choice for beginners and most grilling collections. Highly recommended.
