This is a scorching summer cookbook with vibrant new as well as classy classic recipes that literally sizzle off the page. Antony gives valuable advice and recommendations on cooking with gas and charcoal and his handy equipment review ensures you have all you need before you begin. The book includes all the basics of preparing the food, barbecue and cooking area. Antony Worrall Thompson takes the art of barbecuing and grilling to another level - that of sophisticated al fresco dining. Entertain in style with easy-to-follow, mouth-watering recipes from chapters such as 'On the Rack', 'Skewers and Sticks' and 'Veg Out'. Antony will show you how to make the best use of your barbie, not only how to grill, but to roast and bake in the coals - so you can create a flavoursome feast from just one source. Recipes come from all over the world ranging from the classic 'All-American Burger' to 'Caribbean Jerk Steak', 'Asian Chicken Thighs' and 'Lamb with Moroccan Mint Mechoui' - this is a truly exotic and exciting take on barbecuing.
There's not just meat dishes either, there's fish; 'Chargrilled Monkfish with Chermoulah', vegetables; 'Grilled Nutty Aubergine', 'Baked Sweet Potatoes with Tomato and Chilli Butter' and yummy desserts such as 'Amaretti Peaches' and 'Fruit Kebabs'.
