So after all the predictions that we were going to have a fairly dreary bank holiday weekend, the sun decided to blast those thoughts into the distance and give us what we want – good weather. More importantly good BBQ weather.
The first May bank holiday always signifies the start of the BBQ season for me. But for some of you out there, it would seem utter British madness to be donning tongs and charring sausages whilst shivering into a chilled glass of Pimm’s.
Does early May count as an #OffSeasonBBQ to you or are you also a fellow early BBQ fancier?
George Home are fully behind the #OffSeasonBBQ idea and have given me the chance to offer you a £50 shopping voucher by telling me what your favourite ingredient to BBQ is?
They also sent me all of my favourite BBQ ingredients and a DanCook BBQ, which has won us over to it’s BBQ charms by being just like a table top Weber on mini legs. It’s great value at £89, and there are lots more to choose from at George Home BBQ range.
We barbecued two whole spice marinated organic chickens, alongside a charred vegetable salad with a Feta dressing, olives, hummus, Cypressa olive oil and Za’atar for dipping piles of grilled pitta breads into and a very good bottle of Chablis.
There were so many leftover charred vegetables, plus a spare tub of the Feta dressing and a few pieces of chicken, that we were able to enjoy the feast again the following day at a picnic with friends in Holland Park. It’s worth over catering with a BBQ just so you can enjoy it’s delights again the following day. I never get tired of the smoky flavours which seem to improve after a night in the fridge.
So if you would like to win £50 to spend on an #OffSeasonBBQ just tell me what your favourite ingredient is to BBQ?
