Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Maintaining a brand can sometimes be a thankless proposition. Adler and Fertig, better known in the previous decade as the BBQ Queens, wore tiaras in their 2005 The BBQ Queens’ Big Book of Barbecue and proclaimed, “We grill and smoke like girls.” Seven years and several cookbooks later, they appear to have taken a Shakespearean tumble and are now humble gardeners, “two women who love to cook and especially grill.” It is indeed a matured collection featuring a host of complicated taste combinations. There is charred eggplant with tarragon spread as an appetizer, grilled summer slaw with gorgonzola vinaigrette and grilled bok choy with ginger-soy sauce. All told, there are more than 100 vegetarian recipes and, oh, wait, chicken and charcuterie pop up in several of the offerings, and the fifth of the book’s six chapters is entitled “Meat, Poultry and Fish” and includes entrees like grilled pork tenderloin with fresh fig skewers and flank steak with peppers and onions. So it is at times a meaty collection and at times a veggie collection, as any paean to the “sizzle of the grill” ought to be. And fruity as well, with the dessert chapter extolling the pleasures of grilled peaches, grapefruits, rhubarb, and persimmons. (May)
From the Publisher

Library Journal
“…full of creative ideas for grilling with garden-fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs. VERDICT A refreshing departure from meat-centric BBQ bibles”

Ink Magazine

Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Karen Adler and Judith Fertig will inspire you to plant a garden--even it it's just a few pots--and hose down the barbecue with their guarantee of four seasons filled with good, healthy eating. Their user-friendly cookbook isn't just lovely to look at: it limits each recipe to a page, doable for even the novice griller, while detailing more esoteric aspects of cooking over fire such as planking, smoking or grill-roasting. Browse The Gardener and the Grill along with your seed catalogues, but NOT when you're hungry! Gardeners and outdoor cooks alike will enjoy these recipes for grilling fresh-harvested ingredients.

Washington Post

"Healthy-grilling theme with ideas so clever and obvious they make you think, “Do'h! Why didn’t I think of that?” Here, the garden meets the pasture to delightful results."

Today’s Diet & Nutrition

"Karen Adler and Judith Fertig not only share everything you need to know to grill veggies but also how to use grilled veggies to ratchet up the flavor in grilled meats, fish, seafood, and poultry. With their guidance and recipes for everything from soup to dessert, the meals you serve in your backyard will never be quite the same."

Coastal Living

"Spice up your stash of recipes with this collection of tasty new twists starring fresh farmers' market fruits and veggies."

Tucson Citizen

“Most of us think of meat when we consider a meal made on the grill but this delightful new cookbook will help us expand our culinary possibilities to include grilled fruits and vegetables…. This is a fun cookbook. As more and more of us discover the flexibility of our patio grills, cookbooks like this one will become our kitchen BFFs. Fire up the grill, grab some tongs and enjoy!”

Hello Magazine

Farm-to-table flavour is one thing, but garden-to-grill is a whole other level of deliciousness. In The Gardener and the Grill: The Bounty of the Garden Meets the Sizzle of the Grill, cookbook gurus Karen Adler and Judith Fertig show just how true that is. The cooks – based in Kansas City, Kan. – wed their passion for barbecue and their love of growing fresh fruits and vegetables and the result is a smoking hot collection of recipes. From Blackened Fish Po’ Boy with Grilled Green Onion Mayonnaise to French-Style Grilled Potato Salad and Skewered Strawberry and Marshmallow S’Mores, these fresh, southern-inspired selections are both mouth-watering and surprisingly simple to prepare.

tara henley
"The grilling guide also offers instructions for rubs and sauces, as well as tips for assembling the perfect pantry and utilizing grilling techniques for preserving food. Best yet, the book has something for everyone, serving up more than 100 vegetarian recipes, which makes it as easy to please your plant-eating pals as it is to satiate the carnivores in your life."

Santé
“Beginning and experienced grillers, as well as gardeners are sure to succeed with this must-have resource.”

Library Journal
Known as the BBQ Queens, Adler and Fertig (coauthors, 25 Essentials: Techniques for Grilling Fish) are barbecue instructors and competitors. Their latest cookbook is full of creative ideas for grilling with garden-fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Standout recipes include unique condiments (e.g., Smoked Summer Tomato Basil Butter), substantial vegetarian options (e.g., Fire-Roasted Fava Beans with Sheep's Milk Cheese), and fruit desserts (e.g., Planked Peaches & Blueberries with Amaretto Sauce). This book does not illustrate the finer points of grilling, so readers will need some prior knowledge of equipment and technique. VERDICT A refreshing departure from meat-centric BBQ bibles.
