Grilling is the most basic method of cooking there is. It
dates back to the time of cavemen -- food plus fire equals
good. But when it comes to healthy food from the grill,
evolution has been slow, producing lots of nutritionally
sound but incredibly bland recipes.
Until now. Bobby Flay's Grilling for Life is, first
and foremost, about getting the biggest, boldest flavor
possible from food and fire while making healthy choices
all the way. Imagine a lifetime of Espresso Rubbed BBQ Ribs
with Mustard-Vinegar Basting Sauce; Bricked Rosemary
Chicken with Lemon; Chinese Chicken Salad with Red Chile-
Peanut Dressing; Grilled Beef Filet with Arugula and
Parmesan; Grilled Salmon with Lemon, Dill, and Caper
Vinaigrette; and Garlic-Red Chile-Thyme-Marinated Shrimp.
For food that is good for you and full of his signature big
style and big flavor, Bobby Flay will teach you how to use
herbs, spices, heart-healthy oils, citrus zests and juices,
honey, and vinegars in place of sugary commercial sauces
and marinades. He'll show you how to enhance flavor by
toasting nuts, seeds, and spices on the grill; roasting
garlic in a covered grill to add to vinaigrettes and
marinades; and grilling slices of lemon, lime, and
grapefruit to serve on the side.
Bobby believes that we all need a full and balanced diet to
be happy and healthy, so the book has everything you need
to keep grilling for life: veggies chock-full of fiber;
delicious complex carbohydrates (the right carbs) that not
only fight heart disease but break down slowly, leaving you
feeling fuller longer; fish rich in omega-3 oils; and, of
course, the full range of proteins.
To sharpen your skills by the fire, Bobby Flay's
Grilling for Life includes the sections "Equipment"
(a very short list); "Fahrenheit 101," a temperature chart
that helps you navigate rare, medium, and well-done; "Meals
in Minutes," offering suggestions for the time-challenged;
and "Party Foods," great party menus for everything from a
cocktail party to an Italian feast.
