Mark Bittman, the man who taught us how to cook everything, returns to the MJCCA stage with his latest -- the definitive guide to how to grill everything—from the perfect steak to cedar-plank salmon to pizza—all explained in his trademark simple, straightforward style. Featuring more than 1000 recipes and hundreds of variations, plus Bittman’s practical advice on all the grilling basics, this book is an exploration of the grill’s nearly endless possibilities. Recipes cover every part of the meal, including appetizers, seafood, meat and poultry, vegetables (including vegetarian mains), and even desserts. You’ll also find unexpected grilled treats like avocado, watermelon, or pound cake, and innovative surprises—like how to cook paella or bake a whole loaf of bread on the grill—to get the most out of every fire.
