Description: Barbecues, picnics, camping trips, garden parties -- everything tastes better when it's served outdoors. Featuring festive, illustrated menus for every occasion and more than 300 original recipes from starters through sweets, Great American Cookout includes foolproof grilling and barbecuing techniques, complete with savory sauces, robust rubs, and mouth-watering marinades. The roundup of recipes suits every taste and ability -- classic cookout favorites like Deviled Eggs, Creamy Coleslaw, and Garlicky Grilled T-Bone Steak get cozy with contemporary fare like Spinach-Feta Triangles, Seafood Kebabs with Mango-Ginger Salsa, and Jalapeno Cheddar Biscuits. And let's not forget the desserts, like decidedly decadent Butterscotch Bars, a refined Cinnamon Coffee Cake, silky Chocolate Cream Pie, and tons of kid pleasers like Jumbo Peanut Butter Cookies and Cherry Chocolate Cupcakes with Rich Fudge Frosting. And that's just the food part.
Each chapter features a theme and corresponding menu to inspire perfect gatherings in the great outdoors -- a festive Fourth of July Bash, a down-home clambake, a sophisticated garden soiree. Sidebars throughout include innovative decorating tips, wacky theme ideas, great games for big groups, rainy day rescuers, and much more. And there are tons of boxes with fascinating food facts and tips on everything from vegetable-blanching basics to keeping crudites crisp to the history of the hamburger. More than loo beautiful full-color photographs of mouthwatering meals provide inspiration and serving ideas. With this complete guide to outdoor entertaining, all you need to do is get outside and get cooking!
