I looked forward to adding this one to my collection. The size of the book and the quality of the paper did not match the others that I have......a bit of a disappointment. I am hoping though to have fun the recipes as much.
Jennifer Chandler is an experienced and acclaimed chef with books, tv appearances, and other writings. She is also a mom, so I can trust that a lot of of her recipes are not going to have off the wall exotic ingredients, painstaking prep, or fanciful presentation. I was hoping for simple, family oriented recipes, with a few specialties to be brought out for company days. Because, lets face it, a lot of moms and dads don't wish to be spending all afternoon in the kitchen only to obtain whines and complaints from their small human counterparts across the table.I had the opportunity to keep and give honest review of Chandler's recent book, Simply Grilling, a follow up in the "Simply" family of books she has started with precursors being Simply Salads, and Simply Suppers. I have not seen either of these two previous books, but after experiencing Simply Grilling, you can bet I'm headed to my local library to look it up!In the day of simple to find recipes, exhaustive lists, and twists on every classic food available online, an actual paper copy cookbook would have to have a few primary elements for me to even wish to look at it.1) Pictures- photographs that highlight what the meal is supposed to resemble if you've followed the directions2) Simple Searching and well organized3) Hints or ideas for slight changes if you don't have the ability to quite do the recipe as listedSimply Grilling offers all of these. My absolute favorite aspect of this cookbook (and honestly its the best I've seen in any cookbook I've encountered) are the huge and detailed photographs. The primary layout is a photograph on one whole page, withe the recipe on its corresponding right side. SO AWESOME! I can tell almost with a glance at the title and the picture if it is a recipe worth looking into for my family. I also love the different hints she place at the bottom of each recipe. Icons represent whether they could be done inside on a grill pan, what could be done ahead of time, cooking tips, variations, a marinate icon to allow you know at a glance if you shouldn't be starting a recipe at 4:45 and wanting to eat at 5 :) The first few pages of helpful grilling hints, understanding grilling gear, and how to deal with marinades and rubs were also a amazing element to this book. The recipes were well organized and had a amazing index in the e only slight complaints I have about the book is that there are not enough meat recipes, and a lot of of the ones that were there were more sauces and salsas disguised as meat grilling recipes. While the chapter was in the top right hand corner of each page, I would have loved a color block that was larger or along the side so it was a small quicker and easier to search the section I was looking for.While I still think the I will use my online recipe resources, this is a amazing cookbook to have on hand and would create a GREAT bonus to someone you know who loves to grill.*I was given a copy of the cookbook in exchange for an honest review by book sneeze and Thomas Nelson publishers
Oh my Gosh do not even obtain me started on how I feel about this cookbook! This has quickly became one of the most used cookbooks in our home for the easy reason is it's typically geared towards mainly "grilling" menu's and such. We are a family that loves to grill but we were kinda limited to things like steak, hamburgers, hot dogs...you obtain the picture?Simply Grilling showed us how easy it was to do vegetables and seafood on the grill and it just opened up our eyes to so a lot of more possiblilities than what we had been doing. We increased our grill usuage threefold and you can do alot of these recipes on your indoor grill as well with minor changes and that is amazing when it's too hot out or rainy to be doing outdoor other major thing I have fun about Simply Grilling other than the wide assortment of meal is each recipe has it's own page with image along with cooking tips, suggested sides, and other neat information and not just a wad of pictureless recipes on a page.I always knew you "could" do lots more with your grill but was always afraid to test it because it seemed to much problem or time consuming and having this cookbook on my shelf gave me the encouragement I required to test these fresh things.
Everybody has a barbecue memory. For a lot of of us, it's the smell of the smoke as our dads grilled hamburgers in the backyard in the summer. Or maybe it's sitting on the deck with mates on long weekends, cold beer in one hand, plateful of barbecued chicken in the other. Or maybe it's our kids' summer birthday parties, hotdogs on the grill and red fruit juice in plastic cups. For Tennessee-born Jennifer Chandler, grilling meant hours of smoking chicken and ribs for backyard barbecues or standing in front of "monstrous grills" in barbecue contests. Like a lot of of us, Jennifer Chandler thought of the barbecue as the source of casual comfort meal and family memories, albeit an intimidating one. I can relate. For me--and a lot of women--the barbecue is where men go to cook meat. Where do I even start? What if I wish to create an elegant food using exotic ingredients (Artichoke! Apricot! Snapper!) to impress my foodie friends? My mates are mostly gay, childless hipsters who always bring the trendiest, most exciting meal to potlucks, organically grown and locally sourced of course. My sweet potato salad and peanut ginger soup may seem exotic to my in-laws, but it'll take more than that to impress these gourmands. Surely the barbecue is no put for that...is it? Gourmet chef and grilling-convert Jennifer Chandler says it is. And she's got me covered. From Grilled Tuna with Orange and Fennel Slaw (page 121) to Blackened Snapper Po-Boy (page 177) or even Grilled Peaches and Pound Cake (page 231), Simply Grilling is the gourmet's tutorial to the grill, the casual approach to fine dining, the woman's book of barbecue, the man's tutorial to more than meat, and most importantly the busy mom's secret weapon in impressing her hipster foodie r more reviews, please visit my blog, CozyLittleBookJournal.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not needed to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
This is why Mario Batali is an iron chef! His dedication to authentic Italian cuisine and honoring the ingredients is why his meal is so excellent. Buying a chef's cookbook created me think I would be spending hours in the kitchen, but most recipes only have a handful of ingredients. Done right, that's all you need. My favorites so far are Grilled Polenta with Robiola and Scallions, Primary Tomato Sauce, and Eggplant Rollatini. If you're looking to broaden your recipe box and wish to eat like you're in a attractive Italian restaurant (in Italy!) then follow Mr. Batali. He will lead the way!
Amazing cookbook! I've been a Mario Batali fan for a long time and have flipped through some of his cookbooks but never thought that had enough practical recipes that I would actually cook. This one is the exception. Lots of amazing recipes that are simple to prepare (and some wild ones too).Overall it's a amazing book and I look forward to cooking my method through it.I highly recommend this book if you are interested in some alternative Italian dishes, a Batali fan, or just looking for some delicious ideas!
This book is amazing for beginning and seasoned Italian cooks. The recipes use authentic Italian ingredients, some which may be hard to search outside an old time Italian market, but which are worth hunting for. It also has amazing hints for the cook that will translate into better cooking overall. I highly recommend it!
My Dad taught me to barbecue. He also turned me on to James Beard who's Outdoor Cookbook with the amazing 50's images was great. Decades later I got the Mario Batali Italian Grill cookbook. I've cooked probably 2/3 of the recipes over the latest two years. They are great. I really like the porterhouse with the new herbs/kosher salt/freshly ground black pepper. And the spit recipes, particularly the chicken and pork loin. And the porkchops with the spicy sweet peppers. I could go on and on. It's now in my top 10 cookbooks, right along with Julia Child.I use a HastyBake grill with lump oak charcoal.
i own 6 M/B cook books / amazing cook book / amazing recipes / end results are even better ! buy the book ! i also message a one star rating from just one reviewer who must be part of a one star limited ability group who thinks that by buying a cook book all his inabilities will be resolved , it must be lonely method down at the bottom of the barrel one star !
A unbelievable and beautifully photographed, grill-centered cookbook from Mario. Lots of humor and very delicious recipes. Only issue I've encountered with Mario's cookbooks: Be careful about the amount of red chili pepper flakes. I like things HOT, but either his chili pepper flakes are MUCH less hot than what we obtain or he has consistently used tablespoon instead of teaspoon! If you love Italian meal and grilling, you'll love this cookbook.
This is a amazing book! In a nutshell it will begin your eyes to the endless possibilities that your outdoor grill offers you. So if you are still one of those people that think that all you can cook outside is steaks burgers and hot dogs, this may be the book that finally makes you satisfied that you bought that super douper outside grill that you've ben wondering why you bought it!!
Bobby Flay's Grill It is essential for grilling newbies. He not only gives clear instructions on how to cook famous cuts of meat, but also provides suggestions and recipes for side dishes that compliment the meat (and the grill). We love cookbooks in my house, but this is the only "grilling" cookbook we really use regularly.
I gave Bobby Flay's GRILL IT to a graduate of USC (Carolina) & he loves it. For graduation he received a large, Green Egg Grill, so along with Bobby's cookbook he has never looked back.I must say this cookbook has really encouraged him & he has become more confident as his skills eat Grilling Book.
Bobby Flay is a featured celebrity chef on Meal Network. He not only has his own shows like "Grill It" and "Barbecue Obsession," but also stars on shows like "Next FN Star." (Pardon, I'm doing this from memory and that Obsession may be a bit off). Flay, who says he's a high school dropout, is a restauranteur of note."Grill It" is a unbelievable cookbook that is the companion to the FN series of the same name. I love the series and have fun owning the book. If you only use the chapter on Burgers, pages 42--61, you have recovered your investment. Here you obtain Green Chile Sauce, BBQ Sauce, Red Wine - Onion Jam, Avocado Relish, etc on top of 9 burgers. Then, you obtain the rest of the book!If you wish the down & dirty on grilling, you wish to own this book. (Memo to Bobby: the fresh Las Vegas Strip unit of Bobby's Burger Palace needs a chef's attention.)
Bobby Flay's "Grill It!" is a nice cookbook for those of us who have fun firing up our grills. Charcoal or gas grill? Flay accepts both and gives some tips about each. He notes at the outset that (Page vi): "Firing up the grill makes every night dinners with family or easy get-togethers with mates feel like a party or some sort of celebration." The early part of the book discusses fundamentals--direct vs indirect heat and when to use each, how to determine how hot the grill is, testing for doneness, required gear to grill, what should be in your pantry and refrigerator. Finally, he emphasizes going to a local market/store, picking up what meal seems freshest and most interesting, and going from there.But the heart of the book is the recipes. He divides these up into types of food--vegetables, chicken, beef, seafood, the outset, he discusses grilling veggies. I have tried one of these already--asparagus wrapped in prosciutto. Straightforward ingredients--asparagus, prosciutto, mint, parsley, garlic, etc. Grill the asparagus, after tossing it with oil and seasoning with salt and pepper. Grill until crisp-tender. Then wrap in prosciutto (8 or so stalks at a time) with the other blended ingredients. Yummy! A fine side dish for a ef? He begins with describing how to grill steak perfectly, the base recipe, so to speak. Then, he provides variations, such as creating sauces such as horseradish or balsamic-rosemary sauces. I spent my days in graduate school in Buffalo, Fresh York, so I was especially intrigued by his "Spicy Buffalo style burger with celery-carrot slaw and blue cheese dressing." That is, he reinvents Buffalo chicken wings as a grilled burger. I haven't tried this yet, but I sure am interested in experimenting with this when I obtain the the section on chicken, he begins, once more, with a base recipe, "Perfectly grilled chicken breast." After this, a series of variations on the base recipe or other recipes entirely. What about "Apple-ginger glazed chicken"? "Sweet and sour grilled chicken"?And on it goes. Sections on grilling pork, corn, fruit, lamb, shrimp, scallops, tuna, and so I can tell from the front material, Flay has written other grilling books. I don't know if any recipes are repeated here or not. But I can say that this set of recipes looks beautiful tempting. And the few grilled dishes that I have tried thus far have not disappointed.
conceptually, the application is fine and functional, but... 1.) it's slow as h**l.. from launch, to check retrieval, to payment, it's painfully slow. 2.) all information like dine rewards and payment cards are stored locally, so when you use another device or an application modernize wipes out local storage, you have to enter it all over again. 3.) checkin on arrival is useless.. either staff aren't trained or something, but whenever i use it, hostess has no record of me checking in or making a call ahead.
UPDATE 1/12/2019: Application is slow and isn't registering paid receipts. Just dinned tonight, paid $120+ and the application froze! It never said thank you or paid, never received the email confirmation either. Checked with my bank though and showed pending payment of full bill. Walked out knowing they'll obtain theirs, but the application sucks!!! 8/2017: Okay application when tracking dinning and paying bill, but overall, it still needs work. Carrabba's doesn't offer coupons to is valued customers via this app.
This application could be so much better, but its lacking in so a lot of ways. While you are able to pay your food via the application in the restaurant, but if you're in the bar area, everyone seated in that bar zone tabs are combined as one bill. With all of the technology available today, theres no reason this should be happening. If you wish to order ahead for carryout, the application takes you out of the application and onto a web browser to put the order. Once in the web browser you have to do numerous clicks to order.
The application is clean, intelligent and informative. However, there's no ordering through the app. The application closes and opens a web page that is non-functional for actually ordering. No selection of sides, soups, or salads as this function is nonexistent. Very frustrating as I've attempted to use it a several times in the latest 12 months.
Love the application - perfect layout and animation with amazing content and rewards system. However, unfortunately I had to lose all my points due to signing in with Google instead of manually singing in - after resetting my phone. Code should recognize email on cloud servers. Also no sign out option.
