Great Recipes and tips for grilling on the Big Green Egg and your favorite barbi!….shared and illustrated by Michael Sargent


Michael D. Sargent

Michael has always enjoyed grilling and cooking, starting as youngster out in Long Island, mostly enjoying the fresh seafood from stripers, swordfish, smoked clams and mussels to a nice grilled blue fin tuna steak. As a newlywed, he and his wife worked with a high-end caterer in Fairfield. His interests in cooking grew both independently and as a couple, as his wife Jennifer joined the staff of The Pleasures of Cooking, a publication produced by the Cuisinart Company in Greenwich, Ct. In later years, having pursued his profession in insurance brokerage, he and Jennifer purchased a specialty foods store and establish their own high-end catering business, which they successfully ran for 5 years on Cape Cod.  He writes and illustrates his grilling experiences on the Big Green Egg through Facebook and on the The Green Egg and I.com.  Other cooking recipes and experiences are chronicled under his blog michaeldsargent.com.  “Tasty Morsels”. In addition, you can meet Michael first hand by viewing his taped cooking videos for the “Taste of  Times”, Grilled Calamari, and Seared Tuna, two of his favorite’s, enjoy!

Over the past year Michael and Jennifer have  relocated to the Seattle area in Washington State where they have been  exploring and venturing out to all the food festivals and markets learning about the diverse culinary treats of the area. Michael is continually looking to new cooking approaches and refinements of old techniques on the The Big Green Egg with exciting recipes to share.  A trip to France provided by their son between deployments, also a cooking enthusiast, opened broad new horizon’s of incredible dishes with fresh herbs and vegetables, poultry, seafood, beef, pork and lamb enhanced with delicate sauces enriched with homemade stocks that would compel even the greatest food skeptic to take note. The trip was well documented and proposes to be a daunting task for a later writing and illustration project … Michael continues to venture out of the box always looking for new projects and opportunities while writing and being “out and about”.
