For a gift to bring out the gourmet grill man he really is,
Williams & Sonoma offers a set of grilling planks in maple,
cedar and alder. Grilling fish fillets, poultry or steaks
on natural wood planks infuses the food with a lightly smoky
flavor while retaining moisture. Just arrange the meat and
additional ingredients on a presoaked, preheated plank, close
the grill lid and cook. Foods emerge with a pleasant smoky
flavor. Alder adds smoky flavor to poultry and seafood; cedar
adds a smoky edge to poultry, pork, beef and fish; and maple
planks are great with pork, poultry and seafood. The set of
three is $12; three each of three, $32. www.Williams-Sonoma.com.
