Steak. Asparagus. Pineapple. On a pleasant day when family or friends are near, nothing beats firing up the grill for a great meal. Most of us, however, don’t take full advantage of all the possibilities for outdoor cooking. Not only can the grill provide a savory seared crust on a juicy steak or add smoky flavor to some barbecue chicken, the grill can also enhance salads, side dishes, and a variety of meats beyond your traditional hamburgers and hot dogs.Picture a Caesar salad with bread charred on the grill and topped with reggiano parmesan. Or how about a king salmon cooked over cedar plank wood, a mixed grill with marinated quail and Italian sausage, or iber-roasted potatoes to accompany the main course? And of course, you’ll want a nice vinaigrette with your side salad.
Whether you’re just starting out or you have a wide range of skills, The Everyday Gourmet: How to Master Outdoor Cooking gives you the chance to boost your culinary repertoire and take full advantage of the grill—your “outdoor kitchen.” Taught by Bill Briwa and Patrick Clark, two highly acclaimed chefs at the Culinary Institute of America, these twelve informative lectures are filled with detailed demonstrations of techniques and recipes from around the world that will liven up your summer meals.
The beauty of outdoor cooking is in going back to basics, using simple tools and your own sensual awareness of the process to make delicious food. Whether it’s the feel of heat from the grill, the sweet smell of fire-roasted onions, or the sound of a sizzling steak over flame, all of your senses play a role in success with the grill. Your instructors show you what the various sights, sounds, and smells mean—and how to make adjustments as you go to create the perfect dish, every time.
