Not all the recipes are hot off the grill. Some will
complement your grill creations, including nibbles and bits
(your crowd will clamor for the tumbled tomatoes), salads

Lemon Bars). Libations ranging from Rockin' Chair Lemonade
to Pomegranate Margaritas will liven up any cookout!
There are sixteen color pages showing tantalizing dishes
and dozens of black-and-white photos detailing techniques—
plus helpful cooking time charts, menu ideas, a grilling
dictionary, and a source guide. With Karmel's love of good
food and good times evident on every page, and her warmth
and humor sprinkled generously throughout the book, Taming
the Flame will get you fired up about grilling just about
anything—anytime, in any weather.
