#LaPETITEBites: Grill Like a G - Not Really But You Know What I Mean!

If loving all things grilling is wrong, les petites I don't want to be right! If you are an avid reader of this blog you are well aware that 1. I LOVE books. There really isn't a topic I haven't reviewed of discussed (there is but humor me on this will you?) and 2. I LOVE all things culinary and grilling is definitely one of them. From the fragrant scent of the grill and it's limitless options I personally find it fascinating what can be done with a grill, some ingredients and a little ingenuity.

Ingenuity, inventive and simply orginal can be said about the new tome from Ten Speed Press, AROUND THE FIRE: Recipes For Inspiried Grilling and Seasonal Feasting From Ox Restaurant courtesy of the purveyors of the beloved Ox Restaurant Greg Denton and his wife Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton (along with Stacy Adimando) conjured up a resource of recipes and techniques that at first glance seem extremely intimidating (I have never grilled leg of goat nor poached squid and octopus) but like the book states 'rest assured' there is a way and it's accessible thanks to the easy to follow instructions that even a foodie novice can follow.

#LaPETITEBites: We Gonna Chow Down In Koreatown [Yes, We are Cheesy, Don't Judge!]


I wasn't introduced to Korean cuisine until recently. A good friend of mine who is all about all things edible introduced me to the cookery much to my delight. From the intense flavors and the entire experience of eating these dishes Korean BBQ  truly is an palatable adventure everyone with a pulse should go on. Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard knows this and together assembled a gem of a book KOREATOWN: A COOKBOOK (Clarkson Potter) it's more then just a mere title on regional cooking - NO! It's an insider look on the subject told in an approachable way that isn't esoteric, obscure or complex. For those like me who by the very definition of the word - a neophyte to the cuisine this is an outstanding introduction. No only do have a plethora of recipes to refer to but a deeper look at the people, the stores, the culture as a whole for us to indulge in with all our senses. What really struck a cord with me was the guest recipes by some of the most celebrated chefs. Literally there was no stone left unturned and this book will be treasured for years to come.
