If you find the idea of bringing an international flair to your grilling techniques, consider adding Sizzle: Sensational Barbecue Food by Julie Biuso to your cookbook collection.

You'll learn the secrets of how to create delicious New Zealand barbecue cooking.

Unique Recipes in Sizzle: Sensational Barbecue Food

The first thing I noticed when I started flipping through Sizzle: Sensational Barbecue Food is that this book is filled with many appealing recipe ideas not commonly associated with outdoor grill cooking. However, the recipes in this book are all quite simple to prepare.

Since I'm always looking for ways to use my grill more frequently - instead of the oven, particularly during hot summer months - I was immediately drawn to many of the more unique dishes in the book. After all, I know how to grill burgers, steaks, chicken, and the other traditional grilled foods. Now, thanks to this book, my grilling horizons have been broadened!

Personal Favorite Recipes from Sizzle

My favorite recipes from this book include:

  • Bruschetta with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
  • Button Mushrooms with Thyme
  • Deviled Chicken Wings
  • Eggplant Toasties (thin, grilled eggplant sandwiches)
  • Garlicky Eggplant Kebabs
  • Grilled Asparagus with Buffalo Mozzarella
  • Mushroom Burgers
  • Pots of Gold (delicious grilled cheese and bread concoction, along the lines of single serve fondue delights)
  • Tessa's Grilled Crab Cakes with Cambodian Dressing

Whether you love to grill yourself or if you're looking for a unique gift idea for a grilling enthusiast, you're sure to be pleased with Sizzle: Sensational Barbecue Food. If you enjoy open flame cooking yourself, you'll learn many new ways to prepare and enjoy grilled cuisine. If you'd rather eat the fruits of someone else's labors, you can be sure that anyone you give a copy of this terrific cookbook to for a special occasion is sure to invite you over to taste the new recipes they learn to prepare.
