The Barbecue Bible!by Steven Raichlen
Synopses & Reviews
With a lifelong curiosity for the affinity of food and flame, Steven Raichlen set out on a three-year adventure to experience live-fire cooking in 25 countries. He visited steak houses in Buenos Aires and sate stalls in Bali. He journeyed to Boston Beach to find Jamaica's best jerk, savored shrimp grilled on ember-filled hubcaps in Vietnam and vegetables seared on infrared gas grills in Tokyo. And back home he tasted the best ribs in Kansas City and Memphis and the finest of the slow smoked briskets of Texas.
The tales of Raichlen's travels, the recipies he gathered and the dishes this journey inspired him to create are all in his authoritative new book, The Barbecue! Bible. It is the definitive cookbook on global grilling, offering tips and techniques for all kinds of live fire cooking from rotisserie to fire roasting. With Raichlen's insider list of the world's top 25 grill restaurants, a glossary of special ingredients, a directory of mail-order sources and the most extensive collection of grilling and barbecuing recipies ever published, The Barbecue! Bible is a must for the serious cooks' shelf.
