Simply Grilling by Jennifer Chandler

About the book:

If your grilling repertoire is limited to burgers and hot dogs, it might be time to reconsider your grill’s true potential. Think beyond that typical backyard menu, and imagine serving up a platter of skewered Caribbean Grilled Shrimp with Pineapple Salsa or a Balsamic Beef Tenderloin alongside an Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Salad. Memphis chef Jennifer Chandler has assembled everything a grilling amateur could possibly need to achieve pitmaster caliber results any night of the week. Whether you’re cooking with gas, charcoal, or cast iron, Simply Grilling will eliminate the uncertainty and have you manning the flames with confidence.

In her accessible style, Chandler explains everything—the tools, the heat, and the flavors. If you’ve always found grilling to be a guessing game, you’ll never have to wonder again if the heat is just right or if you flipped your food too soon. From appetizers to desserts and everything in between, Simply Grilling is your guide to delicious meals, hot off the grate.

My Review:

To begin with I have the  e-book copy and did not try it out on my kindle, but was using it on the Kindle app for PC since I wanted to enjoy the color photos. The presentation of this cookbook is beautiful with full color photos for all the recipes. The cookbook breaks things down to help you prepare ahead when you can and does great at giving cooking and prep times as well as serving amount. Also it lets you know which recipes can  be prepared on an inside grill pan. There is also a great section at the beginning called 'Grilling 101' which is very handy for the new or semi-new griller. You will find recipes in many different categories such as: starters, Poultry, Seafood, Sandwiches, Sweet Endings and more. This is a great cookbook for the cook that wants to find more complicated grilling recipes, but for me I am not sure how often I will use it because my family tends to be simple eaters and not into as fancy of food. I am glad I checked out the cookbook and hope to one day find the time to experiment and try something new.
