Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Although grilling is often synonymous with red meat, roaring flames and testosterone, Flay, star of the Food Network's Boy Meets Grill (and author of the book of the same name), shows that there is a sensitive, more elegant side of grilling. The CBS Early Show's food correspondent presents an array of impressive dishes made for grilling, from the sweet and sour Brick-Grilled Baby Squid with Tamarind-Mint Dressing to Grilled Chicken with Toasted Chiles, Coconut Milk, Lime, and Crushed Peanuts. Many of Flay's recipes feature international flavors, and he seems to have a knack for fish, shellfish and poultry. That doesn't mean, however, that the native New Yorker doesn't enjoy a hunk of beef grilled to perfection every once in a while. For those cravings, Flay offers the Pressed Cuban-Style Burger, an amalgam of "a big, fat burger oozing melted cheese and pickles" and "a big, fat Cuban sandwich oozing melted cheese and pickles," or Grilled Ribeye Steak with Cilantro-Garlic Butter, which has a "straightforward flavor punch." Flay gives a copious introduction to every recipe and often cross-references techniques (which he reviews at the book's outset) and offers suggestions for accompaniments (for example, if you're serving the divinely simple Rum-Brown Sugar-Glazed Shrimp with Lime and Cilantro, prepare grilled corn on the cob and avocado salad as sides). Most of Flay's salads, dips, pizzas and quesadillas, as well as the main dishes, are uncomplicated and draw on fresh ingredients, and novices should have no trouble following his easygoing instructions.

From Booklist

The irrepressible Flay teams with noted food writer Moskin in another of his cookbooks on the art of grilling. Flay personifies the urban griller. He uses top-quality ingredients from a vast array of ethnic cuisines to produce a panoply of flavors favored by contemporary palates. Guacamole gets a kick from the addition of grilled corn kernels. Quesadillas go over the top with a garnish of fresh thyme-scented salsa, three cheeses inside, and a dollop of ricotta on top. Grilled potatoes make a novel potato salad, especially when dressed with blue cheese. Cedar planks, so popular for grilling salmon, serve equally well for grilling lobster, which is then accompanied with roasted corn and chipotle pepper salsa. Flay's compulsion to tinker extends even to a classic sandwich, the BLT, and he adapts it for grilling by using green tomatoes and a bit of goat cheese. Flay's television shows and his fertile imagination for the pairing of smoky and sweet ingredients make this a sought-after title. Mark Knoblauch

Don't get me wrong, I have been a huge Flay fan since 1996, when I used to watch his first show on food network. Despite his recent TV saturation and subsequent swagger and attitude I think he has contributed alot to modern cooking and deserves his popularity. No, I am not a hater - the past 2 years my family has gone to Mesa Grill for my birthday, and I tape his shows every day. I am a big fan. I would be sad to see someone give it this rating, but I am giving this book 2 stars because I am comparing it to what Bobby Flay has done in the past.

If you are a viewer of his "Boy Meets Grill" show on food network, you probably recognize 80% of these dishes, and can easily get them for free on their website. I have seen him hock this Cuban burger on 3 shows as well as his own show and this book. It's a regular hamburger with a piece of swiss cheese and ham, squished with a heavy object. hardly groundbreaking. Other Flay staples are rehashed and rehashed - honey, chipotle(which he tries to disguise as "smoked chile" a few times in this book), jicama, ancho chiles, chicken thighs, the list goes on. 125 recipes? If you consider regular old guacamole and salsa, quesadillas prepared 5 similar ways, and store bought ketchup with a pureed chipotle as 8 recipes (and 8 other quickie drink recipes), then I'm sure he squeaked his way to 125. (notice this book doesn't say "NEW recipes" like 'Boy Meets Grill' did?)

Also although I am not a fool for color photos, this book is primarily black and white with no pictures (actually there are many pictures of HIM - shopping, smiling, serving a drink, lighting a grill...) until the middle 10 pages where you DO see some color, unlike his past few books, yet the price tag is the same as his others.

Format: Hardcover
This is the first of Bobby Flay's books I have reviewed and I approached it with the expectation that it will either deflate the hype of Flay's celebrity or show that, as I have seen with Jamie Oliver, there is real substance behind the smoke.
My first observation is that aside from a few nice frills, the book is all about the recipes and all about Bobby Flay. To get them out of the way, the nice frills are the complete list of recipes at the beginning of the book, the list of internet sources at the end of the book, and the last chapter on menus. For a book with only 125 recipes, the complete listing of recipe titles in the table of contents is a natural feature. It should be a feature in every cookbook. The list of internet sites is becoming another expected feature of cookbooks. The list of menus is a very nice touch and shows up what I think is the book's strongest feature. I must say the few color photographs of plated dishes are very good. The many black and white photos of Bobby doing this and that are boring.
I was very pleased to see that Flay's choice of recipes was not at all limited by the cuisine of his two restaurants. In addition to Southwestern and Spanish cuisine, Flay covers other Latin tastes such as Cuban, Caribbean and Argentinean plus Greek, East Indian, Chinese, Thai, and Italian. He has enough recipes to fill out complete menus for each of these cuisines.
Even when you just look at his core cuisines, you can see that Flay is giving us original recipes. They may not be all of his own invention, but they are certainly uncommon. For example, he presents six quesadilla recipes, none of which contain black beans, which is a staple in the four quesadilla recipes in Steve Raichlen's encyclopedic 'BBQ USA'.

Bobby Flay's B-B-Q book has little to do with the standard B-B-Q sauces, and much to do about international flavors, fish, shellfish and poultry.

Yes, the book has the standard red meat, roaring flames and testosterone section, but `Boy Gets Grill' is really for those who what to go beyond the seared steak and try something new, like: Baby Squid with Tamarind-Mint Dressing, or Grilled Chicken with Toasted Chiles, Coconut Milk, Lime, and Crushed Peanuts. HMMM!

Surprising were his excellent "other" chapters in the book. All the recipes I tried were fast, innovative and very good. In his `Cool Drinks' section try the Pineapple-Mint Tequila Fizz. In his `Salads and Sides' try his Coconut-Cashew Basmati Rice Salad. And, for a `Simple Desert' try the Blueberry Cobbler.

The book is skimpy with photos, but besides that this book is strongly recommended for any griller or it would be a great B-Day or Father's Day gift. 4.5 stars.

If, like me, you like to barbecue as soon as the temperature allows, this is the book for you. Although "burgers and dogs" have their place in the grill hall of flame, parties always needs a little variety. All of the recipes are easy to follow, and weren't overly complicated or "scary." I was confident enough with this cookbook to invite friends over for dinner... when I had never even tried to make the recipes before! And the flavors, while intense and unique enough to wow my culinary sensibilities also impressed my friends, who had never before even heard of "tamarind" or "turmeric!" It's hard to find any cookbook which can appeal to such a varied crowd - let alone one written especially with grilling in mind.
Bobby Flay's cookbook gives you a number of great options for your every culinary whim as well as your big barbecue extravaganzas! If you like to grill, I recommend this book for you!
