Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Planking — grilling atop a slab of wood — adds a lush, smoky flavor to foods with none of the labor-intensive mess of traditional pits and smokers. Though sales of planks are skyrocketing, there are few resources available that enable backyard cooks to take full advantage of this easy, exciting technique. The Plank Grilling Cookbook answers this growing need with an extensive array of recipes and helpful advice. Among the inventive offerings are entrees, such as Tuna with a Hoisin-Sherry Sauce, Lemon Herb Roast Chicken, Meat Loaf with Tomato and Red Pepper Sauce, and Sizzling Lamb Fajitas; vegetables and side dishes such as Stuffed Artichokes and Corn Guacamole; and even desserts, from Peach Sorbet to Pecan and Cinnamon Stuffed Apples with Caramel Sauce. The book helps readers choose between the different types of planks — cedar, maple, alder, hickory, cherry, and oak — and also features how-to and safety tips for successful plank grilling.

Review:

"Currently gaining more and more prominence among chefs and foodies, plank grilling has been around for centuries, points out Guillen (Cooking Club: Great Ideas and Delicious Recipes for Fabulous Get-Togethers), noting that cedar wood has long been used by Native Americans to impart seasoning. Here, she elaborates on that concept, showing home cooks how to use wood planks in a number of settings to impart unique flavors. Using only a handful of woods (cedar, alder, oak, cherry and maple), Guillen uses them to great effect, showing readers how to whip up everything from beet hummus and classic Scotch eggs to barbecue chicken pizza, DIY bacon and flank steak stuffed with artichokes and brie. Yes, there are a few of the obligatory novelty items (Caramel Apple Pizza), and some exist only because they can (tomato bisque takes an inordinate amount of time and her ribs are baked in the oven, then finished over planks), the majority of the dishes (pizza's a favorite, as is fish) are practical and doable, provided readers have a reliable source of untreated wood. Her instructions on the mechanics of plank grilling are sound, to-the-point without being patronizing yet specific enough to ensure consistency and success even among novices. Grillhounds and smoke lovers (not to mention woodworkers and lumberjacks) will find a lot of ingenuity here." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
