Book You Can Use as as a barbecue

Barbecue season is nearly upon us, and thousands across the country will be digging out their old, rusty tools and desperately attempting to get a fire going in the rain.

But really, the only piece of equipment you need is this incredible book, which contains everything you need to have a gourmet barbecue. The Biblia Definitiva Do Churrasco (The Bible of Barbecue) has been created by the ad agency JWT Brazil to promote the Tramontina cookware range and each of its 'pages' can be used for a stage of cooking: one page is made of charcoal, another is a firelighting material; there's an apron, a knife sharpener, and even a seasoning page.

Sadly, the book isn't commercially available; just a few copies were given to master chefs, but there is talk of a simplified version being made soon.

It won't stop you burning the sausages though; that's just an unstoppable part of nature.
