About the Author
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”.

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.
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!
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!!!

I picked up my copy for $8 at a local Sunflower Market grocery store. The pictures were gorgeous and looked like something that you'd keep out on a coffee table. Read morePublished on April 27, 2012 by Rachel
I was terribly disapointed in this cookbook. I expected to find something new and interesting after readng reviews, but it was very ordinary.Published on July 10, 2011 by K. Lovejoy
My husband saw this book at William Sonoma and liked it. The first few pages were intriguing, but not much of interest that we would probably cook in the remainder of the book.Published on July 6, 2011 by jomol
