I would have preferred something closer to Alice Waters' veggie books: detailed advice on how to choose and grill a variety of vegetables along with a handful of recipes for each one.
Look elsewhere if you want recipes that actually benefit from the use of a grill. Purchase this book if you absolutely must use a grill for all recipes come hell or high water.
Also, there are interesting facts- did you know that the first charcoal was discovered and sold by Ford Motor Company?!
I gave it a high rating because the food, once finished, is quite good. I've made four recipes from this book so far, and there hasn't been a one that wasn't delicious. There are many recipes that appeal to me (I skip all the mushrooms, though, but if you are a fan of mushrooms you will get a lot out of this book) and you can do something inspired by nearly any kind of ethnic cuisine you might want (Indian, Middle Eastern, various east Asian countries, etc.).
There are some good tricks in this book that can be applied to other areas of cooking, as well. There is one recipe for simple grilled potato wedges (don't have the book with me at the moment so don't remember the title) where you mix butter and hot sauce and just coat the potatoes with it before cooking. It never would've occurred to me to do that, but it was amazing. Also, there is a falafel recipe using canned chickpeas; you put whole wheat bread crumbs in there to help the patties stay together (since usually you need to use dried chickpeas or have your falafel fall apart, as I have learned from past attempts). I am totally going to use the bread crumbs in other patty-like recipes I make. That was super useful. So anyway, I expect there are probably other tricks that I will learn as I further explore the book. I very much like that aspect.
Another thing I really like about this book is that it is opening me up to some lower fat recipes.Read more ›
