Ditch the bags of charcoal and faffing around with lighter fluid and get your sirloin sizzling in mere seconds with this super-sleek gas barbecue from Heston himself. It doesn’t hurt that this retro mint number is easy on the eye, too.
'Grill Power' Oven Gloves
Know a girl who loves a good pun (aside from yours truly, obviously)? Get her this Stuart Gardiner Design oven glove to add to her outdoor cooking kit – it features the best fantasy ‘feastival’ line-up we’ve ever seen. I’m quite partial to a bit of Madonner Kebab, myself.
Dr Trouble Chilli Sauces
If you’re going to get the barbie out, your food deserves something more than the dregs of ketchup you dig up out of a three-year-old bottle. Introducing Dr Trouble chilli sauces – these vegan, organic sauces taste incredible and are guaranteed to save any dish (including burnt-to-a-crisp sausages). Try the Double Oak Smoked Chilli on steak or pork, and the Lemon Chilli on chicken, fish and veg.
Churrasco Barbecue Tool Set
You know what they say: a girl’s only as good as her tools. Pick up this 3-piece stainless steel and wood set and it’ll see you through the summer and beyond.
‘Charred’ by Genevieve Taylor
A sad-looking veggie burger and some salad isn’t going to cut it anymore for the herbivore contingent. Queen of the coals Genevieve Taylor (founder of outdoor cookery school Bristol Fire School) gives you a little veggie inspiration in her latest book (hello honey-grilled aubergine with Gorgonzola and spiced walnuts).
‘Queen of the BBQ’ apron
Let them know who’s in charge, lady! Pop this baby on over your summer finest and we guarantee you’ll only be bothered when it’s time to refill your G&T glass.
Ama serving platter
Once you’ve cooked up a storm, you’ll need somewhere to stick it! Abandon individual plating (who has the time?), pop your hard work on this serving platter and have everyone dig in.
Jungle Salad Servers
Other half need something to do now you’ve taken your rightful place at the barbie? Stick him on salad duty with these cool melamine servers and matching bowl from the delightfully-named Les Jardins de la Comtesse.
