Description

“When it comes to France, you don’t normally think of barbecue, but Susan Hermann Loomis has channeled the grilling of her native America through the cuisine of her adoptive France in 125 stylish, bold-flavored recipes that will inspire you to fire up your grill.” —Steven Raichlen, Project Smoke   


Barbecue was invented in France? So says renowned cookbook author Susan Herrmann Loomis. When the Gauls were racing through lush forests in what is now Brittany, Normandy, and the Loire Valley, hunting wild boar, deer, and rabbit, they’d return to the village, build a fire, and split their prize from barbe a queue (head to tail) for roasting.


Today, the French are still great barbecuers, though over the centuries they’ve refined their skills and borrowed methods from other cuisines: the grill from the US, the plancha from Spain, the mechoui from North Africa. Recipes include:



  • Camembert Burgers

  • Steak with Smoky Olives

  • Honey Grilled Pork Chops

  • Grilled Pistachio, Almond, and Honey Stuffed Apricots


French Grill features dishes for every occasion using ingredients that any American cook can easily find, tips on how to buy the best ingredients, and French grilling anecdotes throughout.





Praise For French Grill: 125 Refined & Rustic Recipes

Susan Herrmann Loomis sizzles with a collection of French recipes made even better when cooked over flames. From sea salt–kissed almonds and Camembert burgers, to sharing the secrets of the crisp-skinned poulet rôti (the kind that visitors and locals can't resist at the local marchés), with French Grill, you’ll find yourself delighted and dazzled by what comes off your grill . . . no matter where you live! 

— —David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen

There’s nobody better than Susan Herrmann Loomis at putting French skills into American hands. This time she’s offering a scrumptious new approach to ‘la barbe a la queue,’ so raise a glass to French Grill—and light the fire.

— —Laura Shapiro, author of What She Ate and Julia Child: A Life

I am totally in love with Susan Herrmann Loomis’s French Grill. It’s a remarkable tome, with voluminous variety, impeccable detail, seasoned advice, and marvelous historical tidbits. I want to make everything in the book, and applaud her from the brilliant range of ingredients and combinations.
