Product Description

From Amazon

Truly a chef-as-star cookbook, Bobby Flay's Bobby Flay's Boy Meets Grill features 26 photos of the man himself (not counting hand shots and various belt buckles). His name, either as Bobby Flay or Bobby Flay's, is repeated over 260 times within 274 pages. No reader will ever doubt just whose cookbook lies open on the kitchen counter with 125 "bold new" recipes.

Though there's the unspoken suggestion that Bobby Flay invented fire, Bobby Flay's Boy Meets Grill actually follows in a long tradition of outdoor cookery books, starting with James Beard's take on the subject, the many contributions of Chris Schlesinger and John Willoughby, who truly opened wide the door to modern grilling, Phillip Stephen Schulz's Cooking with Fire and Smoke, and the remarkable Barbecue! Bible put together by Steven Raichlen that takes grilling global--to name just a few.

But Bobby Flay does have flair and he does have enthusiasm, and both show up on every page. In chapters that cover everything grillable--from burgers (they may be turkey, they may be tuna) to poultry to meat, vegetables, and fruit--Flay pushes hard on combinations of colors and textures, spices and flavors sure to excite the sleepiest palate on the beach. Check out a standard like Butterflied Chicken with Lemon, Garlic, and Basil, or something a little more exotic like Whole Lobster Smothered in Cascabel Chile Butter. What is the thought of Grilled Pork Loin Sandwiches with Spicy Mango Ketchup doing to your taste buds right about now?

The main caveat for these recipes: all are written to serve eight. And be sure to use common sense instead of some of the directions, such as cooking chopped garlic and shallots until soft in "almost smoking" hot oil, for four to five minutes. Hello. Where does soft stop and incinerated begin? --Schuyler Ingle

From Publishers Weekly

Flay's third book is a must read for those who have wondered how this successful restaurateur and cable TV's maestro of marinade can so assuredly choose gas over charcoal when it comes to his biggest passion, grilling. He prefaces his recipes with an anecdote, an ugly day of barbecuing from his early years, the emotional bruise of which makes his choice for gas understandable. Thus, Flay fires up the propane and presents more than 125 patio-friendly concoctions that show off the chef's fearlessness, originality and eye for color. The good idea behind the book is to invigorate the simple tastes of youth with flavors that appeal to the adult palette. Corn on the cob gets rubbed with Red Chile-Green Onion Butter, and pork chops take a soak in a mixture of orange juice, ginger and toasted paprika. Whether it's fowl, fish, pork or potato that's being seared, Flay's brilliance with toppings and side salads make the dish. Witness his Rib-Eye with Chimichurri Marinade and Dried Chile Mustard Sauce or the Tuna Steak paired with a Fig and Nectarine Relish. Still, as delightfully wild as the menu gets, the ingredient list rarely strays from what's available in your local grocery or farmers' market. And the very nature of the cooking style, outdoors with a Cactus Pear Margarita in hand, guarantees a simplicity that will appeal to cooks of both lava rock and briquette persuasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bobby Flay takes outdoor cooking to a new level June 7 2004
This is a good book ... easy to read and easy to do. While I have only cooked 50% of the recipes it's not for lack of trying. My family and friends keep asking for repeats of old presentations and it's slowing me down. Regardless, If you buy this book mouth-watering sauces, vegetables, meats and seafood await you. If you open your mind to cooking new things on the outdoor grill... you will be impressed by the flavor, texture and presentation.

By D Downs
Once again, Bobby Flay has produced another great book capturing his unique recipes. Utilizing ingredients that can be found at any major grocer, dishes are created with a pallette pleasing result. This book is a must if you enjoy Bobby Flay's cooking. I highly recommend this for those that can handle going where no other tongue has gone before!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Time Jan. 30 2004
By A Customer
Don't waste your time unless you are a Bobby Flay groupie. Instead, try one of Chris Schlesinger and John Willoughy's books like "Thril of the Grill" or "License to Grill". Those books provide much more thoughtful advice on grilling technique with both traditional and exotic ingredients.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK Dec 8 2003
By A Customer
One of the most annoying personnalities on TV now has his own grilling book. Recipies are ok, but not the best grilling book by any means. If you want a GREAT grilling book get The Gourmet Grill (if you can find it now because it's out of print but it is fantastic! )

5.0 out of 5 stars Get ready to to launch off to great flavor Dec 27 2001
Great cookbook, nothing bad in it. Highly reccomend the morrocon rubbed lamb with apricot chutney, It was a big hit at a party we gave. If you are bored with the same old things, try this book. Some recipies are labors of love, but well worth the time and most coplex dishes can be prepared ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars The John McEnroe of Chefs Aug. 29 2001
McEnroe was such a phenomenal tennis talent, but he was not my favorite tennis personality. I admired him much for the talent, but did not care for his behavior. Flay is the McEnroe of Gourmet. He has enormous talents for mixing sweet and sour, hot and cool, colors and textures and ingredients to make wonderful dishes. Another one of his talents is that the recipes are not the most complex nor involved, however they are of the essence and his techniques sure are solid and in some cases, innovative.
He is stuck on himself. However, I truly like his cooking and use his recipes from the Food Network often. That was the motivation for buying this book. I'm not disappointed. There are such a magnificent variety here: Turkey Burgers Filled with Brie and Grilled Granny Smith Apple Slices, he's a genius with Quesadillas, here Barbecued Chicken with Grilled tomato salsa and buttermilk dressing, and the Red Snapper Grilled with Corn Husks with Roasted Jalapeno-Lime Butter is just superb! Also, unbelievable combo is Grilled Sea Scallop Ceviche or the Tarragon-Marinated Lamb Chops with Pineapple-Pecan Relish.
Grilled Radichhio and Goat Cheese Salad with a Balsamic-Honey Glaze is fabulous side dish as well as the Toasted Israeli Couscous Salad with Grilled Summer Vegetables.
His desserts and drinks are wonderful section, you can't go wrong with these to make hit. This book will heat up one's grilling repertoire!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yum, yum, yum! May 25 2001
This book shows you how to get the max flavor out of simple combinations. Everything is delicious (except the margarita recipe - blech).
Personally I find Bobby Flay a bit annoying and I wish his "co-star" Jacqui Malouf would go away, but I was able to over look all that and get the book. I was NOT disappointed.
If you are looking for creative, delicious yet simples recipes for grilling, this is your book!
