Put your outdoor grill (whether charcoal or gas) to the use for which it was truly intended - to entertain and gather good friends together over delicious food.
Husband and wife team Bill and Cheryl Jamison show that giving grill parties need not be difficult or time consuming with this inspired collection of friendly and accessible food. The ingredient lists are reasonably sized and obtainable at the average supermarket, and care is taken to keep prep time and cooking hassles to a minimum, so even beginner cooks and would be grill masters can achieve fabulous results.
After some basic grilling instruction and tips, the book gets right down to the important part - the recipes. The Jamisons pull from a world of ethnic food traditions for dishes that are inspired by Asian, Mexican and South American, European and Mediterranean as well as good old American cuisines. In addition to typical grill fare like steaks and burgers, they also include innovative dishes that aren't typically thought of for outdoor grill parties such as pizzas, and vegetable platters. You'll even find recipes for favorite party foods like paella and jambalaya, made even more flavorful by grilling ingredients.
Recipe categories include: Hot little Numbers (appetizers); Made to Order Grilled Pizzas; Grilled Vegetable Platters; Serious Steaks; Burgers for All Occasions; Passion for Pork Tenderloin; Rotisserie Chicken, Turkey and Lamb; Quick Chicken; Sublime Shrimp; Succulent Salmon; Paella and Jambalaya; Fired Up Fruit for Dessert; Salads, Sides, Drinks and Desserts.
