Cookbook Review: Simply Grilling

Simply Grilling
105 Recipes for Quick and Casual Grilling
Jennifer Chandler

In her latest cookbook Jennifer Chandler, a chef trained at Paris’ famed Le Cordon Bleu, provides simple, yet delicious recipes for grilling that you can use any night of the week. She’s really tried to make sure that all of the dishes in the book can be made on even the busiest night of the week. She starts of the book with a section titled Grilling 101 in which she addresses the basics of grilling, essential grill gear and various tips and trick to use while grilling. Following are sections including starters, poultry, meat, vegetables, desserts, and more. Each of the sections starts with a little introduction or story about how she came up with the recipes and why she included the section in the book.

I really enjoyed looking through this cookbook; the recipes sound amazing and there are gorgeous pictures accompanying each one. Along with clear step-by-step directions, Jennifer provides cooking tips, variations and suggested sides where appropriate. I haven’t had the chance to make anything from the book yet, but looking at the pictures and reading through it all makes me want to try it all.  If you’re a fan of grilling and are looking for some new recipes, I’d highly suggest this book. Here are just a few of the recipes included:

Tequila Chicken Fajitas

Prosciutto and Fontina Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Cowboy T-Bone with Whiskey Butter

Grilled Potato Salad

New Orleans-Style BBQ Shrimp

Grilled Peaches and Pound Cake

I cannot wait to try these recipes….hopefully I’ll have a chance soon!
