Simon and Schuster
The Iron Chef returns to his grilling roots in this Ssequel to the his bestselling book Boy Meets Grill.

Boy Gets Grill is set in Queens, on a rooftop in Queens overlooking the Manhattan skyline and celebrates the explosive flavors of his hometown's diverse neighborhoods. Thissquarely ins Bobby Flay's New York, and everywhere he goes, there is great grilling: from Chinatown to Astoria, Queens (Greek food); Arthur Avenue in the Bronx (for old-style Italian); and lower Lexington Avenue (better known as Curry Hill, for Indian); and the flavors go on and on.

The question isn't “Can I grill this?” but “Is there a reason not to grill this?” Usually the answer is “Go ahead and try it!” Throughout, Bobby gets more and more out of the grill, making life easier and encouraging everyone to think big, have fun, and get their hands dirty.

The grill is no longer for weekends only. The recipes in Boy Gets Grill are the quickest and easyiest that Bobby has ever created, making the grill a perfect vehicle for busy weeknight meals. Flavors are (pleasantly) challenging. For the simplest of suppers, try Grilled Quesadillas with Sliced Steak, Blue Cheese, and Watercress; Grilled Shrimp with Triple Lemon Butter; Grilled Tuna with Red Chile, Allspice, and Orange Glaze; or a Pressed Cuban-Style Burger.

Boy Gets Grill is also full of great ideas for entertaining and enjoying the company of family and friends. In the “Big Parties” section, Bobby takes hosts and hostesses through every step of preparation for a Fish Taco Party, Burger Bar, and a Skewer Party (perfect for backyard cocktail parties where one hand stays free to hold a glass). There are even recipes for brunch on the grill.

The book includes cool drinks to sip while the fire gets hot, as well as appetizers, salads, simple desserts, and, of course, the meats, fish, and poultry that everyone loves to grill. Bobby also gives tips on what equipment you need to grill (and more important, what you don't); six simple (and decidedly low-tech) steps to test for doneness; how to gauge how hot your fire is; and Bobby's Guide to Steak.

Whenever summer rolls around, I find myself coming back to this terrific grilling book by Food Network star, Bobby Flay.

It's not complete enough to be a grilling bible and while it does have instruction and advice for beginners, some might like more complete explanations. Flay keeps things pretty simple.

What it does have is terrifically balanced and tasty recipes. Some of my favorites: Beer Simmered Bratwurst with grilled onions and red saurkraut, Pressed Cuban Style Burgers, Barbeque Brisket Sandwiches on Texas Toast. Not all the recipes are on the grill. There are great drink recipes for White Peach Sangria and an excellent Mojito among many others. A wonderful book for a great summertime grilling meal. Eat hardy!
