Featuring 125 recipes that showcase the savory tastes of open-flame grilling and hot-oven cooking, High Heatis distinctively unfussy and easy to follow. No all-day preparations or mile-long ingredient lists here. Even so, readers will discover a rich range of imaginative combinations: Red Snapper with Olives and Fennel; Arugula and Fingerling Potato Chip Salad; Loin of Pork with Apples and Bitter Chocolate; all tailored for indoor or outdoor perfection.
Poultry, meat, breads, and even desserts (roasted Nectarine and Almond Crostadas; Figs with Madeira and Orange Zest; Caramelized Bananas with Blood Oranges, Rum, and Spices) also find a home on the range or the barbecue pit.
In the midst of America's grilling craze, High Heat speaks to the healthy aspects of this cooking style, which draws on food's natural sugar without requiring additional fat (or additional calories). High-heat cooking is also fast, letting readers spend less time fretting over slow-cooking pots. A father himself, Malouf especially emphasizes recipes that appeal to the whole family.
A hot idea for novice and seasoned cooks alike.
