Written by Australian chef, TV personality and cookbook author Ben O'Donoghue, this cookbook lives up to its title, offering a truly global take on grilling and barbecue. O'Donoghue quickly covers the basics, including the pros and cons of gas versus charcoal, essential equipment and grill-cleaning advice. Throughout the book, O'Donoghue weaves his way around the planet with recipes for Grilled Haloumi, Paella, Piri Piri Chicken and Char Siu Duck. Many of the dishes come together on a griddle or hot plate placed on the grill, while others are cooked directly in the coals. A chapter on breads and bites is packed with surprises like polenta, tortillas, chapattis and parathas, all cooked over the fire. You'll also find sauces and rubs, cocktails and desserts, including an irresistibly over-the-top Barbecued Banana Split.
