Cook It Outdoors, first published in 1941, is a classic guide to preparing, cooking, and serving delicious food from the grill and kitchen of legendary chef James Beard (1903-1985). From drinks (mint juleps, Tom Collins, zombies, etc.), salads, soups, grilled meats and vegetables, breads, and desserts, Beard provides a complete range of original recipes sure to please every taste. Cook It Outdoors includes a dozen different hamburger recipes; a range of many easily prepared, flavorful barbecue sauces and salad dressings; and how to choose and cook meats including beef, chicken, pork, lamb, and fish, plus the more exotic cuts such as pheasant, goose, partridge, quail, and venison. As the original dust-jacket stated: Cook It Outdoors "is a man's book written by a man who understands not only the healthy outdoor eating and cooking habits, but who is an expert at the subtle nuances of tricky flavoring as well."
