BBQ Bistro – Simple Sophisticated French Recipes for your Grill
A delicious cookbook of seasonal grill recipes and French-style ingredients and sauces to make you outdoor cooking incomparable.
In the spring, asparagus is the go-to vegetable served with a Mediterranean Aioli sauce for dipping or Grilled Halibut with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli.
For summer meals, you'll love the Spit-Roasted Chicken with Charred Tomatoes on the Vine or the Bistro Steak with Frites and Shallot Butter.
In the autumn, we add Aioli to a wonderful platter of grilled root vegetables, an eye-catching platter of Grill-Roasted Pumpkin with Dry-Cured Olives and Garlic, and a hunter's feast of Wood-Fired Duck Breasts with Fresh Herb Butter.
Winter grilling, preferably not in the snow, is the time to try the Provencal Beef Daube with a rich red wine broth that gets a boost from smoking the big chunks of chuck roast first.
