French chef and restaurateur Stéphane Reynaud is a meat maestro, and in this book he turns his considerable skill to the glories of cooking over fire (his poetic ‘Ode to the Barbecue’ in the intro is a rallying cry to all would-be grillers). Equipment, maintenance, BBQ gear – and, of course, recipes for smoke-licked meat and seafood – it’s all here.
From the best-selling French author of Ripailles, Rôtis and 365 Good Reasons to Sit Down to Eat comes this celebration of all things grilled, seared and baked - Barbecue. With over 140 irresistible recipes including tender cutlets, succulent roasts and ribs, as well as a selection of accompaniments, from minted grilled vegetables to a decadent baked camembert, there's a recipe for every barbecue get-together. Written in his well-known eccentric style, Stéphane never fails to entertain, and his passion for barbecuing is highly contagious. Key points: this book features more than just traditional barbecue recipes. The recipes range from seafood, meat and poultry to side dishes, baked cheeses and even fruit; Reynaud also provides a chapter of sauces and marinades to dress up any barbecue dish and boost flavour; this book is entertaining with Reynaud's trademark wit, quirky illustrations and striking photography by Marie-Pierre Morel.
