This new nugget of a cookbook is from the genius minds of Greg and Gabrielle Denton. This book has been sitting on my coffee table for several weeks now...with travel for work (NYC and DC), I have only had the odd-chance to read. When I find myself with a few minutes, I grab this book. What a book feel! I know that I have talked about my love of the feel of books before but, really, there is nothing like the feel of brushing my hands across the pages of a book printed on thick-stock paper - love it!!!
The content of the book is rich with distinct recipes. This is not your every-day grilling cookbook. Here is just a sample of the recipes that I am looking forward to making (once the monsoon has past my house...yes, I'm exaggerating a bit but it is raining really hard): grilled artichokes with espelette mayo, dungeness crab bruschetta (yum), grilled beef skirt steak with onion marinade, ash-seared lamb loin with celery, cilantro, orange, and cumin-chile oil (OMG), and grilled butterflied whole chicken with gilled figs, manouri cheese, and lentil chimichurri (y'all know how much I LOVE chimichurri!!!). There are too many grilled veggie options to list - just know that the book has soooo many yellow accounting flags marking recipes that I'm looking forward to (and the desserts look as if they are to-die-for).
Not every recipe has a picture and I can understand that....the book would probably be exorbitantly expensive if each recipe had its own picture....but the pictures that are in the book portray the delicacy that one will experience when one purchases this book and then proceeds to make these recipes. I am so glad that I have this book. It is a keeper!!
Now, I am going to go curl up on my sofa, listen to the rain pound my roof, and use my yellow accounting flags on more pages of this book.
