Summer is so close I can almost smell it, and over here the season smells like cut grass, SPF 40 and, our absolute favourite, BBQs.
In our house we’ve always been a fan of the BBQ, and it’s one of my favourite methods of cooking. The kids love it too – sausages, chicken, vegetables (yeah right – sweetcorn if you’re lucky) – and the start of summer always heralds the firing up of our outdoor grill.
It’s a real family situation. BBQs take time to execute properly (oh yes they do – here’s my recipe for the best BBQ you’ll ever have) so the children help out with the marinade, the sausage decisions (caramelised onion or Cumberland?) and toss the salad. I make a massive jug of Pimms, stick the beers on ice and invite the grandparents round to get stuck into the meat.
I can’t tell you how many Friday evenings we’ve enjoyed this way: chatting on the patio with something cold in the right hand and another warm and chargrilled in the left. The children run riot around the garden way past their bedtime while the grownups look on, full of meat and the summer.
It’s such a lovely way to re-connect after a long week. To relax, laugh, and enjoy a good bellyful of good food cooked well.
Which is why I’m soooo excited to bring you this amazing competition from Everdure by Heston. I have one of their wonderful FORCE BBQs – worth £599 – so you too can while away long summer evenings cooking in the garden with your friends and family. YUM!
This BBQ has been manufactured in cahoots with Heston Blumenthal so you know it’s going to be top-notch. It features a massive cooking area with 2 high-performance burners, the ability to sear instantly (YES!!) and an extra-high hood for convection cooking. It is, quite simply, the daddy of foodie BBQs, and I can’t wait to throw a steak and some sausages (caramelised onion) on mine.
It’s so easy to enter, simply follow the steps below. GOOD LUCK!
