Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Barton Seaver's first cookbook, For Cod and Country, set the standard for sustainable seafood cooking. His Where There's Smoke does the same for grilling. As in the previous book, the emphasis is on tasty, fresh, healthy, eco-friendly fare; in this case, local produce, fish, beef, and poultry. The topics begin in the market, but proceed to the grill: This well-organized hardcover explains how to fuel your fire; prepare and cook; and even provides recipes for sauces, spice mixes, and marinades. The diverse recipe encompass Grilled Pacific Halibut with Pistachio Butter, Peruvian Chicken, and Pickled Smoke Peaches.

Publishers Weekly
Seaver, a D.C. chef and expert on sustainability and oceanic ecosystems, doesn't mind releasing a bit of carbon into the air in this collection of recipes for the grill that focus as much on seafood and vegetables as beef and chicken. Gas grill aficionados are asked to kindly step aside in favor of a charcoal fire seasoned with mesquite, hickory, oak, or cherry wood. Smoke, as the title suggests, lies at the heart of these offerings. Clams, lamb, pork ribs, and duck breasts get the smoke treatment, as do several other surprising foodstuffs. There's smoky lemonade, smoky gazpacho, smoky deviled eggs, and smoked mackerel dip. And when wood is just not enough, Seaver gets creative. For his spiced pork tenderloin he advises adding cinnamon and star anise directly to the fire for extra aromatic complexity. Bonus features include a source list for ordering eco-friendly food and a short section on wines for the grill where zinfandel battles it out against chenin blanc. Seaver includes clever tips on wine salts, seasoning blends which will "introduce complementary flavors to spark the wines." Pinot Noir salt, for example, contains cinnamon, fennel seeds, paprika, and grated shitake mushrooms. (Apr.)
From the Publisher
"Seaver hopes to reeducate the casual grillmaster to think beyond commonplace brats and burgers....recipes emphasize vegetable offerings. Writing thoughtfully on proper seasoning and searing techniques, he advocates sustainable animal husbandry. He also contributes some original insights on pairing wines with grilled foods." —Booklist
 
"Chef and sustainability advocate Seaver (For Cod and Country) adds to the growing body of artful grilling cookbooks aimed at readers who begin their barbecues with cocktails and appetizers. VERDICT —Seaver's flavorful take on grilling will please high-end backyard barbeque enthusiasts" —Library Journal 

 

Library Journal
Chef and sustainability advocate Seaver (For Cod and Country) adds to the growing body of artful grilling cookbooks aimed at readers who begin their barbecues with cocktails and appetizers. Recipes like Campari-Watermelon Cocktail, Peach and Ginger Soup, and Grilled Liver with Figs and Onions ooze sophistication, but are mostly easy to execute, and, more importantly, delicious. Seaver includes creative marinades, condiments, and pickles, as well as lists of sources and suggested readings. VERDICT More beginner-friendly than Perry Lang's Charred and Scruffed, Seaver's flavorful take on grilling will please high-end backyard barbeque enthusiasts.

    Last night we had delicous blue fish smoked with apple wood base

    Last night we had delicous blue fish smoked with apple wood based on the tips in this fantastic cookbook. Our guests kept reaching for more of the fish. We've also tried the chicken kebabs on rosemary branches and a lamb recipe. All were much better than anything we've had come out of a grill. We were all set to buy a gas grill, but instead we bought different types of wood chips and are enjoying are old Weber grill. Great book! We're buying another one for our vacation home.
