My second cookbook adaptation from kitchen to BBQ is a recipe from John Whaite’s latest book – Comfort, Food to soothe the soul. Food fulfils many roles in our lives, whether it’s fuelling us, putting a halt in our hunger, satisfying some of the deepest cravings, or in the case of comfort food it can take […]

Joe Wicks Sausage & Red Wine Casserole

This is the first post in a series where I’ve taken a recipe from one of this Christmas’ best selling cookbooks, tested them, and written them to suit the barbecue. One of my goals for this series is to show that pretty much anything can be cooked on your grill, and that to cook something different on the barbecue […]

Smoked Venison Wellington

This is the second game recipe in a row where I’ve smoked the meat at the start of the process, and while it’s not essential I do like how a little smoke really compliments and adds a layer of flavour to a game dish. In the case of this Wellington the outward appearance of the finished […]

Moules Mariniere

I love it when people I teach have that light bulb moment and realise they can use the BBQ as the traditional grill, but also as a way to cook just about anything they can think of.

BBQ’s are not just for Burgers & Bangers (V)

Barbecues are synonymous with meat, and in the simplest form, burgers and sausages. With the recent increase in the mercury, talk in the media has turned to dragging out the BBQ, dusting it off and seeing if it’s still working. Unbeknown to the mainstream food journalists there are legions of BBQ cooks up and down […]
