Description: Cuban-American chef Douglas Rodriguez may be known for his flashy, sophisticated pan-Latin cuisine, but he loves a cookout as much as the rest of us. In his Latin Flavors on the Grill cookbook, Rodriguez steps out of the restaurant kitchen and into the backyard to offer an astonishing repertoire of over 100 recipes for everything from grilled finger foods, main dishes, and sides to complementary drinks and desserts.
Drawing on the spices, authentic recipes, and grilling techniques from over twenty Latin American countries, Rodriguez shares the secrets of those grill-based cuisines, delivering familiar flavors with exotic flair. His recipes come together quickly -- often in the time it takes to start the coals -- and are a welcome antidote to the tired grilled chicken and vegetables we've come to expect. Vying for space on the grill are:
- Grilled Mussels in Banana Leaves with Saffron-Lemon Butter
- Fire-Roasted Clam and Onion Quesadilla
- Baby Back Ribs in Rain Forest Glaze
- Pork Tenderloin with Aji Amarillo-Pineapple Mojo
- Shrimp with Avocado-Horseradish Salsa
- Tuna with Mango-Ginger-Lime Mojo
- Rum Barbecued Black Beans
- No-Rise Grilled Chicama Flatbreads
- Bacon-Wrapped Cauliflower
- Double Chocolate-Coconut S'mores
An exuberant collection of imaginative recipes, pictured in Rodriguez's robust style, Latin Flavors On the Grill cookbook is sure to ignite the passion for grilling in dedicated and reluctant backyard chefs alike.
