Powell’s Books: Greg Denton and Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton “Around the Fire: Recipes for Inspired Grilling and Seasonal Feasting from Ox Restaurant”
April 25, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
One hundred innovative and exciting recipes for the backyard griller–inspired by the live-fire and asador cooking traditions of Latin America and the authors’ popular restaurant, Ox, in Portland, Oregon.
Food & Wine rising star chefs Greg Denton and Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton have earned rave reviews and legions of fans for the wonderfully creative, edgy, and surprisingly vegetarian-friendly wood-fired cooking at their acclaimed restaurant, Ox. Around the Fire translates their Argentine-by-way-of-Portland cooking into simple, flavorful, accessible recipes for the home cook. Grilling recipes are adapted for Weber grills and conventional barbecues, and feature unexpected, unfamiliar cuts of meat such as lamb shoulder, halibut tails, and bone-in fish steaks. An extensive section on grilled vegetable preparations–such as Grilled Artichoke with Espelette Mayo–will take summer barbecues to the next level, and chapters on starters, sides, and desserts are designed to perfectly accompany the grilled main dishes. The food is influenced by Argentine traditions but also showcases fresh, seasonal produce, and recipes for salads, ceviches, cocktails, and other grill accompaniments make this much more than a meat book.
Greg Denton and Gabrielle Quiñónez Denton are the chefs and owners of the critically acclaimed Ox Restaurant in Portland, Oregon. The James Beard Award finalists and Food & Wine best new chefs have earned rave reviews and legions of fans for their creative and edgy cooking.
