In this handbook to the alfresco life, one of our best-known cooking teachers shows how to please friends, neighbors, and family with hundreds of delicious dishes suitable for enjoying the great outdoors—whether it's a rooftop garden or a sprawling lawn. With classic fare such as fried chicken and potato salad, grilled favorites like juicy burgers, barbecued ribs, and sweet summer corn, plus fabulous new creations like Lamb Chops with Roquefort, Figs, and Rosemary and Chocolate Toffee Brownie Cake, eating and entertaining outdoors has never been easier.

The picture on the front cover won me over. When I received it in the mail, there were no pictures to go along with the recipe so it sat on my shelf for a year. Then I was looking for a recipe in my collection of cookbooks and decided to give it a whirl. Every recipe I tried after that was scrumptious. If you don't mind not having pictures, this is a very worthy investment.

As far as the recipes and ideas go, this is a stellar cookbook. The organization is logical, the links between recipes all work internally, and the book's internal ToC works well. Only problem is the Nook ToC, which sends you back to the cover for every link. Fix that and it is a 5 star cookbook.
