The first "grills" possessed neither grates nor burners. The grilling was done right in the embers. The march towards barbecue enlightenment hasn't completely eliminated this primal method of grilling. In this show, you'll learn how to roast eggplants in the embers to make Middle Eastern baba ghanouj and see how a caveman might have cooked sweet potatoes. Our main dish routinely makes eyes pop and jaws drop in Bogota, Colombia: beef tenderloin wrapped in salt and cloth and roasted in the embers. And for dessert, an ingenious twist on that campfire classic, the S'more. The real baba ghanouj, fire-roasted; Eggplant Lomo al trappo, whole beef tenderloin roasted in cloth; Roasted Sweet potatoes; Shortbread s'mores.
