There’s a classic riddle about a father arriving late to a summer barbecue with his son. He asks the grill master for a well-done hamburger for the boy. The grill master says, “He doesn’t want that; my son only eats burgers medium rare.” See, the grill master was the kid’s mother! We might have the specific details of the riddle mixed up, but the point is female chefs are now (wo)manning the fire all over the world. Tonight at 10pm ET, watch Cooking Channel’s Grill Girls about some of the women who are discovering the thrill of the grill.
We’ll follow an all-women’s barbecue team hoping to make a name for themselves on the BBQ circuit. Then we’ll look at why women are moving their cooking to the back yard.
To fire up excitement for the premiere, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite grilling recipes from our top female chefs. Get the recipes after the jump.
