Publisher Comments:

A collection of 100 contemporary recipes for the range of wood-fired cooking options, by Ramekins culinary school's wood-fired cooking expert.

Mary Karlin's enticing recipes explore the diverse flavor characteristics of hardwoods and live-fire cooking methods, from Plank-Roasted Porterhouse or Indian Cilantro-Mint Naan to a hearth-baked Milanese Risotto Tart or Warm Chocolate-Chipotle Cakes. Introductory chapters cover the basics of indoor and outdoor wood-fired cooking, followed by the best applications for the myriad live-fire techniques, a survey of equipment, and detailed instructions on building fires and regulating temperatures. Karlin's expert planning shows efficient cooks how to make the best use of wood-fired cooking sessions, including step-by-step instructions for preparing an entire week's worth of food in a single session. WOOD-FIRED COOKING is ideal for grilling enthusiasts looking for the next challenge.
