About the Author

Born in Melbourne and raised on Australia's Gold Coast, Evan's passion for cooking was inspired by his love for the great outdoors. He worked as a chef so that he could surf or fish all day. After opening his first restaurant, The Pantry, in Melbourne’s bay side suburb of Brighton in 1993 at the age of 19, Pete moved to Sydney in 1996 with his brother Dave and established Hugos in Bondi, followed by Hugos Lounge in Kings Cross in 2000, Hugos Bar Pizza in 2004 and his most recent venture Hugos Manly in 2008. Pete’s restaurants have won numerous awards including the SMH coveted “chef’s hat” for seven years in a row; “Best Pizza in the World” in New York; and “Best Bar in Australia” in 2005; “best nightclub in Australia” 2007, 2008, and 2009; and “best pizza restaurant in Australia” in 2008 and 2009.

Pete has been in front of the camera for the last 9 years as a TV presenter. February 2010 saw the premiere of "My Kitchen Rules" in which Pete and his good mate Manu Feildel head up the judging panel in this plate against plate team competition. Pete’s other work includes over 400 episodes as the host of Australia’s top cooking show “FRESH” on Channel 9; 60 episodes of “Home,” a lifestyle program; a one-hour behind-the scenes documentary, “Cooking For Our Princess Mary”; and the series “FISH,” which saw Pete and his fishing mad brother in-law ‘Udo’ travel around Australia catching and cooking the freshest catch. Pete is currently filming a new project that has him cooking for the world’s best parties. He appears annually at some of Australia’s most acclaimed food events such as “Tasting Australia”, “The Good Food Show,” and “The Great Barrier Feast.” He travelled to New York and Los Angeles for the G’day USA promotion in 2009 and 2010 where he cooked at “The Waldorf Astoria” and was featured on “The Martha Stewart Show,””The Rachael Ray Show,” and the “CBS Early Show”.

Recipes are easy to follow and are healthy, too.

It is nice to have some grilling recipes that are a bit different than the normal throw on a hamburger or steak, but not all that difficult to make.

I mixed up a batch of "Fish House Punch" as a pre-dinner drink and it was a hit and sooo good.

Pete Evans is a popular Australian chef and he presents recipes to cook on grills; although, for only a couple does he say that they can also be cooked on the stovetop - it would seem that most of them would also work in skillets, frying pans and grills, especially if they were cast iron on an indoor stove.

There are many pictures of him and the scenery around his cooking locations. Each recipe has a page devoted to it and then a large colour picture. He gives some information about each dish and some substitutions than can be used. It is nice to have some grilling recipes that are a bit different than the normal throw on a hamburger or steak, but not all that difficult to make. My only problem with many of his dishes is that you have to have a taste for chilies, chili oil, chili powder, pepper flakes, hot paprika or seasonings such as Szechuan peppercorns. It does get a bit tiresome to have so many fiery tasting dishes... granted you can omit and lessen the amounts. There are some lovely fish recipes such as; grilled hamachi with hoisin glaze, halibut with lemon and parsley butter, trout with wild mushrooms, prosciutto and garlic.

The book is divided into 3 sections, grilling away from home, easy casual recipes and those for an evening meal. There are no desserts, but some drink recipes, our favorite is fish house punch made with rum, brandy and guava juice. Two other family favorites have been; mushrooms on toast with ricotta and Pacific sole with warm dressing of garlic, parsley and red wine vinegar.
Grilling aficionados and cookbook collectors would probably enjoy this cookbook.

I bought this book after trying a recipe by Pete Evans from the June issue of Food and Wine. The recipe was "Whole Grilled Fish with Crispy Garlic and Red Chiles" and you basically marinate a whole fish (snapper in my case) and wrap in a banana leaf then grill it. I loved it because I was able to get locally, fresh caught snapper and pick the banana leaves off my banana tree in the back yard and grill it next to the pool while enjoying a cold one. My guests loved it as well and even though it was easy to prepare, the dish had an exotic flare about it.

The book is full of easy to prepare, deliciously different meals. Most of the recipes can be cooked over an open flame or bbq. I have both in my back yard, but prefer to use the charcoal / wood bbq because of the flavor it imparts to my meals.

So far, I've only cooked one dish from the book as I only just received it about 1 week ago, but already I'm loving it. The "grilled corn with chili and lime" was am amazingly delicious different way to prepare a bbq staple such as corn on the cob. I paired the corn up with Pete's suggestion of "Marinated pork chops with pineapple and ginger mojo". Another easy recipe to prepare and equally as delicious and different.

Another great feature I love about the book is that there are plenty of big, colorful pictures to accompany the recipes.

Last but not least Pete even included drink recipes to go along with the dishes and they are just as amazing. I mixed up a batch of "Fish House Punch" as a pre-dinner drink and it was a hit and sooo good.

All in all, this is a great book to add to your collection, especially if you like to cook outdoors as much as I do. The only thing I'm bummed about is that some of the recipes in the June issue of Food and Wine weren't in the book. If you get a chance, find a copy of June's Food and Wine and check out the recipes he has in there. The "Easy Grilled Paella" looks awesome!

Cheers!
Dennis

Just a few thoughts about this book...it is a keeper!!! Beautiful photos, amazing food, great drinks, sides and even a dessert or two. Recipes are easy to follow and are healthy, too.
I love the fish recipes. There is a pancetta wrapped grilled trout that we just made this past week end...yummy...

I love the grilled fruit recipes and we can't wait to try the homemade Bloody Mary!!!

Cheers!!!

I picked this up and flipped threw this "manly" style grilling cookbook and I really like so much of what he works with I couldn't help but pick this up. From recipies of eggs and chorizo which starts off this cookbook to all the fish, chicken, meats, salads, drinks and ideas I can't wait to get stared as soon as the weather warms up here in southern New England. I love scallops, shrimp, veggies on the grill as well as so many kinds of fish, chicken, lamb, steaks, pizza, he has great ideas, and works with so many of my favorite ingrediants. Can't wait to try the Portuguese burgers, thai beef salad and the grilled corn with lime, all his salads, specialty drinks, great photos of these dishes, making me hungry! He gives you ideas from breakfast through dinner to drinks and appetizers all grilling outdoors. I just might try making myself his signature bloody mary, well worth picking up.
