Cider and the Grill

Cider and the Grill

Apple cider—yes, cider!—will surprise you with its versatility at the grill. From sweet-as-honey to sour-as-a-lemon, the winning contrast of fruitiness, acidity, and underlying savory qualities lend a mouth-watering depth to recipes well beyond the apple’s conventional domain of desserts and drinks. For a prime example, take cider syrup (also known as ‘boiled cider’, made from reducing fresh cider), which makes a truly spectacular glaze for...

Happy Anniversary to Barbecue! Bible

Happy Anniversary to Barbecue! Bible

If you happen to visit the Smithsonian Museum of American History, you’ll find an exhibit on a uniquely American institution: the backyard barbecue. And if you happen to tour that backyard barbecue exhibit, you will see, next to James Beard’s Complete Book of Barbecue & Rotisserie Cooking (published in 1954), and the Sunset Barbecue Cook Book (1958), a book near and dear to my heart: The Barbecue! Bible, written by yours truly and published by Workman in 1998. Which makes this the 20th anniversary for the book that got me into barbecue. (Yikes—two decades have passed already?!) And an unexpected but much appreciated honor for a book that wasn’t supposed...

The French Are Masters At The Grill

The French Are Masters At The Grill

You know of my longstanding passion for barbecue. What you may not know is that I came to this field—circuitously for sure—through a degree in French literature. After college, I traveled to France on a Watson Foundation Fellowship to study medieval cooking in Europe. But how can you study the history of cooking if you don’t know how to cook? So I enrolled in a brand new cooking school in Paris called La Varenne. It was there that I met a fellow student and soon to be fellow food writer,...

Upgrade Your Summer Entertaining: Enter for a Chance to Win the Barbecue Bible Party with Paella Sweepstakes

Authentic Spanish paella, which was first seen during the 18th century near the coastal city of Valencia, has much in common with American barbecue.

This summer, we encourage you to explore this tradition and bring together your friends and family over the delicious blend of rice, vegetables, and protein that make up this delightful dish. To help you bring this tradition alive in your backyard,...
