Summer is here and it’s officially grilling season! This week’s show is all about cooking in the great outdoors; it features conversations about grilling techniques, unique sauces, and spectacular sides dishes. Dan Souza, from America’s Test Kitchen, has a primer on fire-building and grill control. Host Francis Lam gets saucy with Bill Kim, author of Korean BBQ; they talk about mash-up style sauces your next barbecue cannot do without. We talk to chef Nuno Mendes about the Portuguese way of grilling sardines. And, what will you serve to complement your skillfully grilled meats and vegetables? Bon Appétit’s Claire Saffitz brings us recipes for colorful, stylish summer side dishes that you can make ahead and bring to the party. Plus, Francis and callers discuss different ideas for cooking a whole turkey outside and advice for cooking with miso paste.
