By Barton Seaver

Stirling Epicure, $30

With a focus on fruits and vegetables, award-winning chef Barton Seaver’s beautiful new grilling book stands out from the mass of meat-obsessed barbecue books on the market. Its compelling recipes-think Wood Grilled Snap Peas with Smoky Aïoli and Ember-Roasted Squash Hummus-mingle the delectable flavors of seasonal produce with hints of smoke and fire. There are also detailed essays on grilling techniques and informative ingredient guides, which include sustainability information that’s more practical than preachy. (Seaver heads up the Healthy and Sustainable Food Program at the Harvard School of Public Health.) An abundance of recipes for all sorts of non-grilled goodies (cocktails, pickles, salads, soups, sides) will see you through this summer and many more to come.

Tasting Notes

Grilled Potato Salad (page 86) In this smoky, spicy, creamy, tangy version of potato salad, new potatoes are boiled with vinegar, grilled, and tossed in a yogurt-based dressing flavored with sliced scallions and roasted poblanos.

Flank Steak with Radicchio and Plum Salad (page 232) This terrific, easy recipe takes grilled steak from ordinary to unforgettable as sweet plums and smoky beef meet the bitter crunch of radicchio.
