As you know if you read my blog often, I love getting new cookery books and trying out the recipes in them. I was recently sent this lovely brightly coloured book to review and couldn’t wait to give it a go.
Weber’s Foolproof Favourites contains 70 recipes to try out on your barbecue. There is a great introduction at the start which gives some background on how Weber got started and foolproof FAQs on how to get started with a BBQ. Ideal if you are complete BBQ novice like me. It then launches into the recipe section.
The seventy recipes in this book are divided into seven sections, Starters, Red Meat, Pork, Poultry, Seafood, Vegetables and Sides and Desserts.Each recipe has a full page photo accompanying it and flicking though the book will get your mouth watering. My husband commented that even the vegetables look lovely, and he is a confirmed carnivore.
The recipes are well set out and easy to follow. Each has a list of ingredients and then the steps to follow to make the dish. At the top of each recipe are a set of four circles. These are used to identify the preparation time, the time it will take to cook on the BBQ, how many people it serves and the level of skill you need to cook it. This makes it easy to plan your menu.
I had to make one of the recipes from the book just to see how easy it was to follow. The recipe I chose was Texas Two-Step Pork Chops which did look rather nice. The recipe was really easy to follow and the final result was gorgeous. This is how it turned out.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for barbecue recipes or even recipes that can be cooked on the grill at home. I am really looking forward to holding a barbecue party with a selection of recipes from this book.
This book is published by Octopus Publishing Group and the RRP is £8.99.
