9780060972066: The Complete Book of Outdoor Cookery

-- Features recipes and techniques for barbecuing and grillling, picnics, cooking on camping trips and in trailers

In the health-conscious '90s, James Beard's characteristic focus on simplicity and freshness in meals holds more appeal than ever. This volume showcases the uniquely thorough and simple guidance of Beard and Helen Evans Brown on how to take the best of the kitchen and dining room to the great outdoors. This widely acclaimed classic is the definitive guide to all aspects of outdoor cooking, with recipes from breakfast to dinner, starters to desserts, and indispensable guidance on classic principles of cooking detailed enough to turn novices into pros at the fireside.

At once rustic and elegant, the offerings of this cookbook and guide include mouth-watering recipes ranging from skillet biscuits to scones, charcoal-grilled vegetables to wild game -- even spit-roasted whole albacore tuna! Beard and Brown add practical advice and their own personal insight to each section, plus a complete checklist of equipment for camp-outs, menu suggestions and ingredient lists, and tips on using fire, fuel, spits, grills, and rotisserie, pit, and hibachi barbecues.

With its complete instruction for cooking and preparing food both on and off the grill, this is an excellent companion for today's adventurer or backyard chef.

From the Publisher:

Marlowe is proud to offer classic cookbooks by JAMES BEARD!

FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES: "Far and away the best thing yet on outdoor cooking...good reading about eating."

FROM THE LOS ANGELES TIMES: "As complete a book on outdoor cookery as one can find. James Beard is a genius at explaining away the mysteries of well prepared food."

FROM KIRKUS REVIEWS: "The informality and increased flavor of outdoor cookery has made this a favorite way to entertain--and this is just the book to see that you do it well. Certainly an answer to the overworked hot dog or hamburger, this should whip up the ambition as well as the appetite of that man around the house."

FROM JEREMIAH TOWER: "This is a really good book. And it is timeless. Each chapter is crammed with practical advice and personal insight, sensuality, and a friendly desire to eat the food they are talking about. The authors were never geared to fashion, only to what worked and what was realistic at the time, as it still is according to common sense and classical principles."
