I spent a rain storm in Barnes and Noble today, and read through this book--it is not a grilling book in the traditional sense of the word. He uses modest variations in traditional recipes and techniques that are important to success. I think it is a cookbook that an experienced griller or cook should take out of the library, read cover to cover, try a few techniques and think about whether it is worth purchasing--Batali is a great natural cook, and you can learn alot about the feel of food and ...more

I want to make everything in this book!!

It helps that there are lots of pretty pictures.

The recipes I've made so far (grilled artichokes with mint and chiles, chicken thighs with agliata and snap peas, grilled whole branzino with salsa verde) have all been outstanding and easy. When I have company I really want to try the grilled cheeses and I want to try his BBQ sauce.

Fire up the grill! There's nothing Mario won't put on it. Many of the recipes list ingredients that aren't easy to find, but he offer substitutes for most. Fresh robiola wrapped in mortadella...neither of which can be found in my town, but the recipe sounds and looks so good I'm planning a roadtrip to seek out the ingredients.

This is a pretty varied book that should give you some very good ideas for other things to do with your grill other than cook hamburgers and hotdogs. The vegetable and fish recipes I tried were great and inspired other attempts to cook great things.

This book makes me hungry for summertime and grilling. Great combinations of flavors I wouldn't have thought to put together, and some super ideas for grilling that we'll put to the test before the ground thaws.

Strange that it was a grilling book but all I tabbed was a recipe for Pizza Dough and Piadine dough (Emilia-Romagna snack bread that looks like a thick tortilla).
