There’s nothing quite like a campfire on a cool autumn evening. The people cozily gathered around. The s’mores stuck to lips and fingers.
Nothing, that is, unless it is grilling. The taste of grilled meats and veggies simply cannot be beat.
As the girlfriend of a Brazilian who maintains his deep love for grilled meat, I find myself at somewhat of a loss when it comes to the world of grilling, though. Growing up, my family seldom ate large chunks of meat. (In fact, for the longest time, I maintained that I did not like steak–not because I had tried it but simply because I had only eaten it once.)
Where can I and other grilling-deprived people like myself turn when we want to learn this art of grilling? “Around the Fire”–with its recipes from the Ox Restaurant–fits the bill perfectly. It includes a whole buffet of flavors and dishes–from steaks to salads and–can you believe it–even desserts to finish the meal!
I recommend this book for great grillers, novices like myself, and others interested in getting their husband to start up the grill for summer.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
