Ted Reader blazes his way back into plank grilling

Following the success garnered from their first cookbook collaboration, Napoleon Gourmet Grills and celebrity chef Ted Reader are set to launch their second lavishly illustrated cookbook, focusing on the use of wooden plank when grilling.

Napoleon’s Everyday Gourmet Plank Grilling is the definitive guide to incorporating planks into everyday barbequing. It is perfect for those looking to break away from the same old grilling standards and mix it up in front of the fire this summer. Planking is a hot and fast way of smoking foods and Ted’s inspired recipes demonstrate how grilled food can be cooked to perfection, infused with the delicate flavors of the wood it’s cooked on.

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve never used a plank when grilling before, or use one all the time. This cookbook will teach you everything you need to know about plank grilling, from cleaning the cedar to removing your meat,” said chef Ted Reader. “Plank grilling is a refreshing change of pace from typical barbequing; it infuses food with a delicious smoky flavour,” he added.

Sure to be a favourite among grilling enthusiasts for years, this delicious collection is stocked with dozens of easy-to-follow recipes. Readers will discover how to create sumptuous hors d’oeuvres, mouthwatering main courses and delectable deserts, using gas or charcoal barbeques. Ted provides detailed cooking instructions, in addition to his tips and tricks to help create picture-perfect meals.

Napoleon’s Everyday Gourmet Plank Grilling retails for $40 and can be purchased at Napoleon dealers across Canada and in fine book stores everywhere.
