Grilling season is in full swing!

All thoughts turn to grilling with the approach of the Memorial Day weekend.  When asked, “Which barbecue/grilling book do you like best?”, I always recommend any volume from Steven Raichlen.  Called America’s “master griller” by Esquire Magazine, he is the author of numerous bestsellers including The Barbecue Bible, How to Grill, Beer-Can Chicken, and BBQ USA (a dog eared and sauce covered tome I consult to check temperatures, techniques and noteworthy recipes from all across America).  His television show “Primal Grill” is entering its third season with the official start of barbecue season (it’s here!)  His latest book is called Planet Barbecue (he’s covered the USA, now it’s time to tackle the globe!).  Check out his website for grilling tips, recipes, his blog, and to find out about “Barbecue U”.  This guy has made an entire industry out of barbecue and he’s the best!  Enjoy.

I’d be thrilled to toss some of the divine Copper River Salmon from Alaska on my grill.  It’s only in the stores for about a month-now through about mid to late June.  And boy, are they proud of it!  The best price I have seen so far is about $33 a pound.  As much as I crave the heavenly treat-especially paired with a fabulous Pinot Noir from Carneros, discretion is the better part of valor these days on extravagant food costs.  I may have to wait a week or two and see if the price drops to a more manageable level.  Look for it in better stores, and by all means, let me know if you find a better price.  Have tongs will travel!

It’s barely been hot and already I am dreading summer!  Cool, light summer fare helps relieve the stress.  David Bull has a new summer menu at Bolla in the Stoneleigh Hotel.  Menu items include Crispy Chicken Cobb Salad, Seven Grain Club Sandwich, Penne Pasta Primavera, and Chicken BLT Sliders.  Cool.  Reservations: 214-871-7111.  2927 Maple Avenue, Dallas, TX 75201.
