This cookbook has a copyright of 2005. I bought this book at Barnes and Noble on sale for $9.98. I have never cooked from this book before.
Though this says "healthier" I don't consider it a diet book. It is very "protein" based, includes "good" carbs (like multi-grains), but doesn't resort to fake ingredients to keep calories down. This book also has fat in some recipes so those looking for "fat free" need to really check the recipe first. Each recipe has a nutritional analysis, which lists calories, protein, carbs, sugar, fat, etc. Most of the recipes would probably work for South Beach or Somersize diets.
There are a few pages in the front that deal with grilling equipment, dealing with temperatures of grilled food, herbs and spices, flavorings, and how to's. Chapters deal with vegetables, fish and shellfish, poultry, pork, beef, lamb, drinks and desserts. The content page for each chapter lists the names of the recipes. The index is pretty detailed. There are only eight color photos of dishes. There are some black and white photos interspersed throughout the book but most are of Bobby, not the food. There are several recipes that are not grilled (drinks, cole slaw etc).
The recipes seem pretty straight forward. Depending on where you live, some of the ingredients might not be easy to find (fresh lima beans, fresh buffalo mozzarella, pasilla chiles, chile de arbol powder). Since it's a Flay book, expect lots of bold flavors.
Tons of interesting things to try in this book. Grilled German Sweet Potato Salad, Twice-Grilled Peppers with Buffalo Mozzarella and Caper-Basil Vinaigrette, Grilled Tuna Salad Sandwiches with Lemon-Habanero Mayonnaise, Balsamic-Thyme Glazed Duck Breasts, Green Chili Burgers, White Nectarine Bellini...I definitely want to continue to cook from this book.
