Here are some BBQ-friendly selections.
Their black angus 100% grass-fed striploin hails from Australia is marbled with fat which scorches and sears as it grills over fire to develop a glorious caramelised crust.
Grassfed lamb from New Zealand can be cooked in the oven and then finished on the BBQ. Or try a butterflied leg of lamb which cooks in no time at all. Marinate your lamb with plenty of garlic and rosemary to further enhance the herby flavour of the meat. Rest the meat and then slice at an angle and serve in a big platter for everyone to devour!
For seafood, go for their Alpine King Salmon, which is is raised in the pristine alpine waters of NZ. Lay some lemon slices on your grill and place the whole salmon fillet/portions on top to protect the fish from direct heat, which adds a beautiful caramelised lemon flavour. Cook until the fish is just cooked (a little under is best) and add some fresh herbs on top.
Award-winning English pork sausages made from free-range pork; local free-roaming chicken thighs and drumsticks, Black Angus burger patties, spare ribs (try these smothered in a smoky BBQ sauce for the ultimate crowd pleaser).
Barbie Meals are a great way to get ready-made meals on the table for your guests. Kept frozen until you’re ready to reheat and serve.
Burrata cheese is a soft, creamy, luscious mozzarella cheese mixed with cream. Really good served whole with parma ham and a rocket salad.
Prosciutto di Parma from the Parma region of Italy is sweet, nutty and salty but not too salty. Goes beautifully with the burrata cheese.
