Rob Rainford


It`s all right there in the title! Canada`s Rob Rainford is born to grill and is here to pass along his tricks of the trade. And with a few months left of beautiful gilling weather ahead of us, couldn`t we all use a secret here and there to add a little pizazz to our BBQ?!?

Best of the Book

I love the way the book is set up. 100 different recipes broken up into 20 different menus just waiting for you to try them all! Inspired by Rob`s recent travels, this is not your typical burgers and steak BBQ cookbook. The recipes are vibrant and colourful as well as unique and inspired. Some of my favorite recipes include: Portobello Mushroom Napoleons, Grilled Fennel and Green Apple Soup and Spanish Paella with Grilled Seafood.

Needs Improvement

Target Audience

This book is a good one for anyone who likes to get slightly adventurous in the kitchen or is just looking for something to do with their grill that isn`t burgers and hot dogs. Rob`s method of instruction and tips and tidbits make the recipes easy to follow and ensure success fo
