Cookbook Spotlight: Around The Fire

This is the grilling book of the summer with 100+ recipes from the popular Ox restaurant in Portland, Oregon. Drawing on the authors’ experiences grilling in Michelin-starred restaurants and Gabrielle’s Ecuadorean roots, the book adapts Latin American open-fire cooking for the home griller by explaining the art of heat control and zone cooking on gas, wood or charcoal grills.

Here are three recipes from the cookbook to try:

Grilled Broccolini With Taleggio Cream & Hazelnuts

Cucumber & Strawberries With Calabrian Chile & Cured Black Olive Relish, Pine Nuts, & Chèvre

Grilled Butterflied Whole Chicken With Grilled Figs, Manouri Cheese, & Lentil Chimichurri
