Sunset has long been recognized as an authority on grilling and was instrumental in pioneering the acceptance of grilling as a year-round part of a casual lifestyle, beginning with its books on backyard barbecues in the 1930s and continuing to the present day with its magazine. The Sunset Grill is about enjoying meals with family and friends. It describes a way to cook that is at once easy and sophisticated. It also describes a way to entertain that is friendly, cheerful, and inviting--whether you are getting dinner on the table during a busy weeknight or relaxing with friends in the backyard on a Saturday afternoon. The book features tasty ribs, juicy burgers, mouth-watering chicken, fresh fish, inventive side dishes, and yummy desserts from Sunset magazine's fabled test kitchens in Northern California. With a photograph for every recipe, and additional photos showing entertaining ideas, grilling techniques, and wine-and-food pairings, The Sunset Grill is sure to be a frequent reference book for weekend barbecue enthusiasts and weeknight grillers alike. Four-time James Beard Award-winning authors Cheryl and Bill Jamison wrote the book's foreword.
