The title of this cookbook mentions “Recipes for Grilling Everything,” and believe me, the authors mean everything: chapters cover the expected beef, veal, pork, chicken/turkey, fish, and vegetables; in addition, entire chapters are devoted to lamb, goat, bison, & other game meat, duck, goose, & game birds, crustaceans & mollusks, fruit, cheese, other dairy food, & eggs, and bread, sandwiches, cakes, & cookies. All grilled! Other useful chapters include “A Primer on Grilling Methods & Equipment,” “How to Build Flavor into Anything Grilled” (hint: rubs, mops, and sauces), and “46 Points of Ingredient Know-How” (e.g., how to pit a mango).
