This summer promises to be a scorcher. And I'm not talking about the sun, but the grill, the stove and spices. Noone loves summer grillin and chillin like I do. So every week we will focus on getting you all out of the laziness associated with the summer kitchen and excited to cook regardless of the outside heat.
Nothing is of limits and any food question you have we will answer together. So let's get started.
Firstly you will need my top 3 reads of the summer. Yes 2 are magazines.
My 2017 Summer "bible"
You aren't a true foodie if you don't have this one.
I love this book and I just got it yesterday hot of the press.
In the Bahamas we have some of the best seafood but rarely eat ceviche of fish. So see the photo below and try to honestly admit that you won't eat ceviche of some fashion after this.
Hog snapper " crudo" style ceviche with quick pickles and brined sea purslane
Remember K.I.S.S. Keep it stupid simple!
Make summer fun, plan a trip to go and gather out of your community bush aka forage. I did it and look what all I found.
1. Wild rosemary
2. Wild sage
3. Bahamian olives
4. Sea purslane
5. Love vine bush
Finally remember that nothing says summer like a grill/ smoker. Take the party outside, around the pool or the beach or under a tree in your backyard. With a wireless Bluetooth speaker, a few Kalik Radlers and a grill you can make anything happen. We will journey through the next few months and I promise that you will graduate head of the cooking class if you just simply enjoy the ride. As always remember to Eat, pray, love, grill and have fun!
