Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Americans have become so accustomed to firing up their backyard grills for all sorts of meats, from large joints to everyday burgers, that they forget that vegetables flourishing in the nearby garden profit equally from the punch of flavor that barbecuing bestows. Grilling potato slices before tossing them with strongly herbed French vinaigrette adds a level of flavor often lacking in mayonnaise-dressed potato salads. Grilling green tomato slices before sandwiching them with cream cheese delivers a somewhat less heavy alternative to frying. For all their imaginative ways of grilling greens, Adler and Fertig by no means ignore fish and meat. Fish tacos brim with leafy greens and blackened fish pieces, and there’s even a comforting burger. The authors advocate grilled breads, and they present examples from Afghan, Indian, and Italian traditions. Searing fruits such as peaches, apples, and figs underlies a number of sweet desserts. --Mark Knoblauch

Review

Library Journal
“…full of creative ideas for grilling with garden-fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs. VERDICT A refreshing departure from meat-centric BBQ bibles”

Ink Magazine

"A resourceful guide packed with tips on container gardening, best plants for grilling, cooking methods and simple yet inventive recipes to maximize the flavors of the seasons…If harvesting your own vegetables is a goal this season, you’ll find foodie adventures within the 224 visually tempting pages."

Breathe magazine

"… full of creative ideas for grilling with garden fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. Standout recipes include unique condiments, substantial vegetarian options and fruit desserts."

Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Karen Adler and Judith Fertig will inspire you to plant a garden--even it it's just a few pots--and hose down the barbecue with their guarantee of four seasons filled with good, healthy eating. Their user-friendly cookbook isn't just lovely to look at: it limits each recipe to a page, doable for even the novice griller, while detailing more esoteric aspects of cooking over fire such as planking, smoking or grill-roasting. Browse The Gardener and the Grill along with your seed catalogues, but NOT when you're hungry! Gardeners and outdoor cooks alike will enjoy these recipes for grilling fresh-harvested ingredients.

Washington Post

"Healthy-grilling theme with ideas so clever and obvious they make you think, “Do'h! Why didn’t I think of that?” Here, the garden meets the pasture to delightful results."

Today’s Diet & Nutrition

"Karen Adler and Judith Fertig not only share everything you need to know to grill veggies but also how to use grilled veggies to ratchet up the flavor in grilled meats, fish, seafood, and poultry. With their guidance and recipes for everything from soup to dessert, the meals you serve in your backyard will never be quite the same."

Coastal Living

"Spice up your stash of recipes with this collection of tasty new twists starring fresh farmers' market fruits and veggies."

Tucson Citizen

“Most of us think of meat when we consider a meal made on the grill but this delightful new cookbook will help us expand our culinary possibilities to include grilled fruits and vegetables…. This is a fun cookbook. As more and more of us discover the flexibility of our patio grills, cookbooks like this one will become our kitchen BFFs. Fire up the grill, grab some tongs and enjoy!”

Hello Magazine

Farm-to-table flavour is one thing, but garden-to-grill is a whole other level of deliciousness. In The Gardener and the Grill: The Bounty of the Garden Meets the Sizzle of the Grill, cookbook gurus Karen Adler and Judith Fertig show just how true that is. The cooks – based in Kansas City, Kan. – wed their passion for barbecue and their love of growing fresh fruits and vegetables and the result is a smoking hot collection of recipes. From Blackened Fish Po’ Boy with Grilled Green Onion Mayonnaise to French-Style Grilled Potato Salad and Skewered Strawberry and Marshmallow S’Mores, these fresh, southern-inspired selections are both mouth-watering and surprisingly simple to prepare.

tara henley
"The grilling guide also offers instructions for rubs and sauces, as well as tips for assembling the perfect pantry and utilizing grilling techniques for preserving food. Best yet, the book has something for everyone, serving up more than 100 vegetarian recipes, which makes it as easy to please your plant-eating pals as it is to satiate the carnivores in your life."

Santé
“Beginning and experienced grillers, as well as gardeners are sure to succeed with this must-have resource.”

I love this book! I especially like the way it feels. It has a sturdy paperback cover with French flaps (which I adore) that keep the corners from getting dog eared. The design of the book makes me feel like I am in the garden. The book design is appropriate for the whole tone of this book.

First recipe I tried was the Grilled Romaine. I have had this at a restaurant before and loved it. But doing it yourself and serving it hot off the grill is way better than eating it out. The Rosemary Garlic Baste is tangy and flavorful but I also lightly dressed the 'salad' with some Fresh Basil Vinaigrette (I am a nut for anything basil) and it was an extra layer of flavor... made me feel like I could open a restaurant with just this one dish alone!

There are delicious sounding fruit recipes,too, like the Grilled Grapefruit with Rum Butter Sauce. But of course, I went for the Skewered Strawberries and Marshmallow S'Mores. Did I like them? Are you nuts... they are to die for.

So I am happy to rank this book with 5 stars and can't wait to delve into the Grilled Polenta and seasonal veggie platters, the Planked Pear with Blue Cheese, Grilled Gazpacho, and the Charred green Beans with Lemon Verbena Pesto...

I have been trying not to add to my already massive cookbook library, and initially checked this out at the library. After looking at it for about a half hour I decided to buy a copy. My husband and I are trying to eat healthier and work more vegetables into our diet and we also love to grill. This book is absolutely perfect for us! We have already tried the Brats & Grilled Kale w/ horseradish butter, the grilled radicchio & brussels sprouts with hot bacon dressing, and the peaches & blueberries w/ amaretto sauce. All were amazing! I like that there are simple ingredients and simple recipes which allow me to create a fantastic end result I would be proud to serve at a dinner party. I look forward to trying many more of the recipes. Thank you ladies!

I won't give 5 stars to the book because I just bought it but I must say that the recipes are simple and very well written. Most of the recipes are based on ingredients that most of us already know and cook but the novelty of the book relies on the "new" ways to cook the food, from salsas, butters, grilling techniques and flavors.
It's a great book and I can't wait to keep using it.
ps/ the recipe for the bok choy is delicious and very easy!

I love to Grill. When I became vegan several years ago, I packed away my beloved grill in the back of the shed. This book opened up a whole world of delicious (truly scrumptious) alternatives. I LOVE this book and am back to enjoying the taste of BBQ again. (The grilled veggie pizza is to die for!)

I have to say that I am really enjoying this cookbook. There are ingredients that I would never have thought to grill and almost all the recipes are ones that I will try. I was so inspired by the book that I planted a garden on the side of my house and can't wait for plants to grow. The hints on gardening will be helpful for a first-timer. I am going on a trip to France to visit my husband's family and bought a copy for my brother-in-law since he has a garden in his backyard but he typically only grills meats. I was wondering what the reviewer meant when he said that the colors in the index weren't good so I looked through the book and saw that the type was in white so it was clearly readable to me. Did I miss something? Haven't tried the pizza recipes yet so will note the flour omission.
