Praise For…

“When Greg and Gabrielle met over a wood-fired grill at Terra Restaurant in Napa Valley, the sparks flew, in more ways than one. Their terrific new book is sure to ignite your cooking passion as well. Their restaurant in Portland is called Ox, but this cookbook is not just about the meat: check out their chapter on grilled vegetables and you’ll see what I mean.” 
—Nancy Silverton, chef and co-owner of the Mozza Restaurant Group

“One way we cooks show love is to feed and nourish people. Greg and Gabrielle’s book is a true extension of this idea: it’s about the passion that comes from cooking foods over fire, passion you can feel with each turn of the page. These recipes are approachable, yet bold with flavors that will sate you from deep within.” 
—Cortney Burns and Nick Balla, chefs and authors of Bar Tartine

"This is the kind of food that expands our imagination of what can be cooked on the grill ... It's a gorgeous book; rarely has anyone captured the beauty of fire and food in the way photographer Evan Sung has. ... Around the Fire takes the familiar, twists it a bit, and refreshes the whole category."
—Russ Parsons, Saveur
