Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

New York State's famed C.I.A. takes backyard grilling up a level in this attractive volume, with an arsenal of tips for mastering the grill, whether it's charcoal or gas, using briquettes or wood chips, with a smoker or without. Expansive sections on meats, seafood and poultry are a given, but more unexpected fare, such as vegetables, breads and even breakfast (Toad in a Hole with Red Pepper Ketchup) and desserts (Grilled Banana Split with Homemade Ice Cream), get outdoor treatment as well. More than 175 uncomplicated but stylish recipes play with international influences, such as Guava-Glazed Baby-Back Ribs, Seafood Grill with Tamarind Glaze, Jerked Game Hens with Rice and Beans and Grilled Pineapple–Jícama Salsa, Grilled Ratatouille, Grilled Cubano Sandwich, Herbed Crêpes with Grilled Asparagus and Shallots, and Grilled Papaya and Mango Skewers with Lime Sorbet. Full-color, full-page photos by Ben Fink offer tantalizing peeks at the finished products. (Apr.)

By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 7 2007
Format: Hardcover
Forget the standard steak, hamburger, and hot dog fare. Grilling contains over 175 beef, pork, veal, chicken, turkey, seafood, and vegetable recipes with tastes that explore the globe. There are even recipe sections with a number of good breakfast and dessert ideas.

Like all cookbooks from The Culinary Institute, each recipe is described in full easy to understand terminology usually complete with pictures. In cases where special equipment or techniques are needed, special instructions are included. In the past, and while using this particular book, I have found these special instructions to take me by the hand step by step to do some seemingly complex techniques in a virtually mistake proof way.

While undertaking some of the recipes in Grilling, I was really thrilled at the flexibility of these dishes. I quickly found out that I could cook these dishes as easily over the backyard fire pit as the actual barbeque and when I tried some of the recipes in the oven they still tasted incredibly delicious. I also make extras of a lot of the rubs and sauces for later use with really good results.

All-round international flavor May 10 2006
By Lynn Harnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For those who want to get a jump on the grilling season, the CIA offers another of its scrumptiously photographed and well-organized cookbooks featuring an international array of recipes and lots of clear, concise advice.

Meats, poultry, and seafood get star attention, but the real standouts are the exotic sauces and salsas and the chapter on vegetable dishes.

The usual favorites are here - Chimichurri and Teriyaki and Jerk sauce, but for something different on your pork ribs or chops or chicken why not try Guava Barbecue Sauce or Apricot-Ancho Glaze or Meyer Lemon Salsa? Or even Pickled Grapes?

Grilled vegetables are served with an assortment of lemony sauces and the Marinated Pepper Salad with pine nuts and raisins is as delicious as it is simple. Then there's Shiitake Mushrooms with soy-sesame glaze, Radicchio Salad with shaved jicama, oranges and Hazelnut Vinaigrette and Beet Salad with walnuts, cilantro and tomatoes.

There are also chapters on grilled sides and sandwiches (Potato and Red Onion Fans, Chicken Burritos with Tomatillo Salsa), breakfast (Griddled Toast with Apricot and Lemon-Cardamom Butters, Pear Skillet Cake) and dessert (S'Mores, various skewered fruits).

All recipes include succinct advice on variations, storage and shopping as applicable and the book begins with a primer on grills, smokers and techniques. This is an all-round useful book with an emphasis on the big flavor of herbs, spices and fruits.

Amazing Aug. 18 2008
By Bonzai - Published on Amazon.com

This book has some great (different recipes). Obvioulsy there are going to be some recipes that do not appeal to everyone (Grilled octopus) but there are so many others from meat to veggies to fruit to breakfast. Even if you are not a fan of the type of meat (rabbit) you can always sub a different meat. The helpful hints throughout the book were excellent. When I first got the book I sat with a friend going thru it & we kept saying "OMG I can't wait to do this one" on pretty much most of them

Fabulous food, carefully explained Oct. 24 2011
By ThirstyBrooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Culinary Institute's Grilling book explains in painstaking detail how to grill restaurant quality protein entrees, and also has a section on grilling vegetables. And it includes a handy chart matching more than a dozen different types of charcoal with the types of meats they match best.

I'm trying to move away from the protein-centered approach to meals, and I found this book valuable for its instruction on flavor combinations. In particular, the book provides an excellent manual for those who prefer to replace marinated meats with higher quality cuts of meat with dry spice rubs. This approach aids a shift to smaller meat portions in meal design.

Other palates may find nirvana in many of the recipes that didn't appeal to me. I'm just not ready to make four cups of barbecue sauce using black coffee, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and not-quite-salsa. Other sauces called for ingredients I have no pressing need to add to my kitchen. I may revisit these as my cooking style evolves to new ingredients. Still other sauces contain lots of sugar or wine and run counter to the simpler tastes of my own cooking. Here I need to point out that the Culinary Institute's Grilling book is the only one of six grilling books I found worth the time to review, because alcohol and excessive sugar are featured in so many grilling recipes.

If you're ready to move beyond "guy cooking" to restaurant quality food, or if you want to demonstrate excellence at grilling, the CIA's Grilling book will serve you well.
