Simply Grilling

     My view:
     Like my Mammow did, I enjoy reading cookbooks. This one is interests me for two reasons. The recipes aren't my typical style, and every single recipe in the book is accompanied by a full page color picture. The author is a top graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, but she writes in a way that is easy to follow. This cookbook covers everything imaginable for the grill from all kinds of meats and vegetables to desserts and salads. The dessert section does include some recipes that don't contain a grilled component, but they complement the grilled meals. This Louisiana girl has never heard of Cajun Grilled Okra, but I will be trying to make it on our grill once our okra grows a bit more in our garden. 

     Chapters in this hardback book begin with Grilling 101 which gives some helpful tips for a grilling novice like me (my husband will grill anything I marinate or prepare on skewers.) Additional chapter titles are: Starters, Poultry, Meat, Seafood, Salads, Sandwiches, Vegetables & Sides, and Sweet Endings. 

     From the Publisher: 
"If your grilling repertoire is limited to burgers and hot dogs, it might be time to reconsider your grill’s true potential. Think beyond that typical backyard menu, and imagine serving up a platter of skewered Caribbean Grilled Shrimp with Pineapple Salsa or a Balsamic Beef Tenderloin alongside an Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Salad. Memphis chef Jennifer Chandler has assembled everything a grilling amateur could possibly need to achieve pitmaster caliber results any night of the week. Whether you’re cooking with gas, charcoal, or cast iron, Simply Grilling will eliminate the uncertainty and have you manning the flames with confidence.
In her accessible style, Chandler explains everything—the tools, the heat, and the flavors. If you’ve always found grilling to be a guessing game, you’ll never have to wonder again if the heat is just right or if you flipped your food too soon. From appetizers to desserts and everything in between, Simply Grilling is your guide to delicious meals, hot off the grate."
