Derek Wolf is a genius when it comes to grilling over an open fire, and has even been featured on Stephen Raichlen’s popular PBS television show, Project Fire. He is the brains behind the popular website, Over the Fire. He is also the author of an excellent cookbook on the subject, Flavor by Fire: Recipes and Techniques for Bigger, Bolder BBQ and Grilling

The beginning chapters cover the basics of grilling over a fire, as well as categories of taste, and different flavors. The best part of the book, however, is the mouthwatering recipes that make up the bigger part of the cookbook. Many recipes are expected, but there are also many that are unique. Both types of recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients first, followed by succinct instructions to insure that any cook, whether beginning or advanced, can prepare picture-perfect dishes from the open fire.

Most of the how-to and informational chapters include beautiful, professional photographs. Many of the recipes are also pictured, and the dishes are so appealing that it will be difficult to choose which dish to put in the “must make now” queue.

It’s always nice to get advice from someone who really knows his stuff, and this cookbook will make a perfect addition to anyone’s cookbook shelf. It will insure that dishes cooked on an open fire turn out perfectly.
