Hot Dinners Best Cookbooks of 2022

Over 100 seasonal and achievable barbecue recipes celebrating the common thread of live fire cooking in cuisines from around the world.

In this homage to live fire traditions, award-winning food writer Helen Graves (aka @foodstories) showcases the very best of barbecue throughout the seasons. Featuring seasonal produce including lots of vegetables alongside meat and fish, Helen also interviews chefs and home cooks from the multiple diaspora communities cooking with live fire in the UK, exploring the techniques that define and unite the way we grill. Helen’s talent for combining evocative writing with bold flavours makes this a truly immersive, practical book that will have even the barbecue novice running for the coals.

From chicken wings with tahini and za'atar and pork cheek tacos to grilled baby artichokes with an anchovy dip, a coleslaw for every season and a killer smoked cherry and whisky butterscotch sundae, every recipe in Live Fire is achievable as it is enticing.

This will make you into a year-round barbecuer. Just the right amount of information, and absolutely delicious recipes. - Diana Henry

This book is a firecracker; a testament to Helen’s knowledge, experience, curiosity and appetite. But what I love most about Live Fire is that rather than seeing cooking over fire as a specialty subject, or something for special occasions, it reframes it simply, as cooking. - Rachel Roddy

Helen's cooking style is quite extraordinary. I know very few people who can combine that kind of firecracker creativity with the ability to produce dish after dish to make you issue small moans of desire. Her talent for food is, literally and figuratively, on fire. - Sunday Times restaurant critic Marina O'Loughlin

I’ve always thought of Helen as the queen of barbecue but she also has a real ability to tell a story and capture the visual side of anything she writes about. A fantastic book for all lovers of live fire. - Fiona Beckett

It's wonderfully written and full of exceptionally good, user-friendly recipes from all over the world... I am very for women reclaiming the barbecue. - India Knight, The Sunday Times
