Over 100 seasonal and achievable barbecue recipes celebrating the common thread of live fire cooking in cuisines from around the world.
In this homage to live fire traditions, award-winning food writer Helen Graves (aka @foodstories) showcases the very best of barbecue throughout the seasons. Featuring seasonal produce including lots of vegetables alongside meat and fish, Helen also interviews chefs and home cooks from the multiple diaspora communities cooking with live fire in the UK, exploring the techniques that define and unite the way we grill.
