In some countries, barbecuing is the basic means of cooking. Ainsley Harriott has travelled around the world to observe barbecuing techniques and Ainsley Harriott's Barbecue Bible is a both collection of the best recipes and a reference of techniques, style and flavourings for the grill. There is a wide range of barbecues to choose from nowadays, from small disposable trays to the most sophisticated grills set in glamorous trolleys with table attachments. Ainsley helps you make the choice by describing the benefits of charcoal, gas and wood. Once the equipment has been decided on, Ainsley adds some guidelines on chopping onions, peeling garlic, roasting spices and toasting pine kernels. His barbecuing tips range from using only extra thick foil to soaking wooden skewers in water to avoid boiling. The recipes are wide-ranging and include vegetarian and burger options. You'll find Char Sui Lettuce Rolls--the 'red' roast pork dish you can get in almost every Chinese restaurant--to spiced Indian kofta. Side dishes, from Sweet and Sour Minted Aubergines to Puy Lentil, Red Onion and Sundried Tomato Salad are included. A chapter is also devoted to marinades, glazes and sauces. For the true barbecue aficionado, there are barbecue puddings like Fired Strawberries and Cream, and Strawberry Hill Pineapple with Rum Butter Glaze. --Greg Seymour
