From Publishers Weekly
Bold, crunchy and good for us, today's hassle-free pickles, attest Chris Schlesinger, John Willoughby (co-authors of the bestselling The Thrill of the Grill) and Dan George (aka the Pickle Man), can add plenty of pizzazz to meals
or serve as a flavorful snack all their own. In Quick Pickles: Easy Recipes with Big Flavor, they team up to reminisce about their lifelong love of pickles and share recipes and pickling lore that reflect cooking traditions from all over the world. From
El Salvadoran Pineapple-Pickled Cabbage, a featured favorite at Schlesinger's East Coast Grill in Cambridge, Mass., to Pickled Peaches in the Style of India, their clear recipes and eager commentary will tempt even the most ornery of taste buds.
