A Griller is Born,
This review is from: Bittman's Kitchen: What I Grill and Why (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
How do I love grilling now? Let me count the ways... thanks to Mark Bittman. Let me be clear, I'm not a big cook, but now I can't wait for the weekends so I can try another recipe. Everything is so concise and clear, it truly removes the guess work and makes the entire experience enjoyable. The tone is easy and light and, unlike with some other cooking books, I didn't need a dictionary along side to reference. As for the complaints about no pictures -- seriously? The recipes are so easy to follow, and we're talking about grilling, I would hope folks out there know what a nice piece of grilled swordfish looks like. Truly a great find and even though there are only 15 recipes, I can see coming back to this over and over again!

If the recipes are well written (and this is Bittman, after all) who needs pictures? I am an adult and an experienced cook. These recipes look good, and we will probably make all of them.

Food is art. I believe that all other Bittman books are illustrated in some way. I am not looking for high-quality studio shots but the book is devoid of all art or even any color for that matter. It is nothing but text. It is just utterly unexciting which doesn't make me very enthusiastic about any of the recipes no matter how fantastic they are.
