High Heat: Grilling and Roasting Year-Round With Master Chef Waldy Malouf by Waldy Malouf, Melissa Clark (Broadway) Powerhouse chef Waldy Malouf of Beacon Restaurant in New York City and Stamford , Connecticut , likes to play with fire. Roasting and grilling have become his signature, and High Heat heralds the arrival of this approach for home cooks.

Featuring 125 savory recipes adaptable for both open-flame grilling and hot-oven cooking, High Heat is the first cookbook to offer home cooks this kind of flexibility. In fact, most of the recipes, which are short and easy to follow, include simple variations for both kinds of cooking so that you can enjoy your favorite flavors whatever the weather or time of year. Both oven roasting and open-flame grilling rely on high heat to bring out the most delicious and fundamental flavors of any food—caramelizing the natural sugars and turning the foods golden brown. And High Heat cooking is both quick and healthy, intensifying flavors without requiring additional fat or calories.
