Great Grilling Tips

Making the most of changing seasons

Go Seasonal

Yes it’s true, tomato season is coming to a close, and we can almost kiss all that sweet corn goodbye for another year; but the bounty of autumn is almost upon us and it’s filled with wonderful treasures from the land and from the sea.

Ever have a grilled oyster, for example? September has an "r" and that signals the return of cold water seafood and great clams, oysters and mussels! Grilled shellfish is a labor of love but the added smoky notes one gets from grilling bivalves adds another layer of flavor complexity that makes them a real treat. My favorite grilling and shellfish combination happens to be mussels Provencal made with grilled tomatoes! It’s an easy way to add your own distinct touch to this classic dish while making it the perfect partner for a lightly oaked white like a Bordeaux Blanc or Sauvignon Blanc.

  • We had a barbie wine once.

    It was like its namesake.

    Malproportioned, badly balanced and tasted of plastic.

  • Grilling is truly fun and a great way to bond with families and friends during summer or in whenever time of the year. Charcoal Grilled Chicken is one of the healthiest recipe you can possibly cook. There are some parts of chicken like breast that have less fat and salt and with fewer calories which can be a great alternative to pork and beef. Plus it provides an excellent source of daily protein.
