For all you casual partiers out there. Don't even bother cutting the bread, just rip it.

Chef Ben Ford has a neat party trick: feeding everyone with a gigantic grill-centric outdoors feast. Dozens of people, typically with a whole animal. Chef Ford’s formidable new cookbook,Taming the Feast, is the ultimate guide to hardcore al fresco entertaining.

Need an easy, flavorful and light appetizer to keep the crowd in check while the whole pig roasts? These ultra-casual crostini — seriously, don’t even slice the bread, just tear it apart, toss with finely chopped garlic and olive oil and toast briefly in a hot oven — sport smoked fish spread and tangy, spicy pickled peppers. It’s a match made in grill party heaven.
