"Grill Italian hooks the cook in the introduction. Who would not want to light the grill after reading the author's description of an alfresco dinner in Sicily ? The recipes are generally on the simple side, relying on the fresh ingredients and herbs for flavor rather than on heavy marinades and bastings. I love the frequent trick of alternating items on skewers with cubes of oil-soaked bread or that of sprinkling on bread crumbs to add texture ? Sausages, onions and oranges skewered together offer a delightful change of pace."

Clifford A. Wright... is a memorable, marvelous writer.
