    Ye Olde BBQ Sauce

    Ye Olde BBQ Sauce

    Summer isn't summer without BBQ, and BBQ isn't BBQ without a finger-licking, super tasty BBQ sauce. 'Ye Olde BBQ Sauce' was developed to pay homage to a particularly memorable meal enjoyed in Montreal back in 1956. It's been a family favourite ever since. 

    Baste 'Ye Olde BBQ Sauce' on chicken or a rack of ribs while they cook and allow the sauce to caramelize slightly or serve alongside a steak grilled to perfection. 

    Chef: Judy Harwood
    Yield: 2 servings (with extra sauce in a tiny bowl on the plate for dipping).

     

    Ingredients: 

    1 medium onion diced

    1 large garlic bud, diced

    3 tsp. paprika

    1 ¼ cups stock, chicken or vegetable

    ½ cup ketchup

    ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce

    Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

    Few shakes of Tabasco sauce, or to taste 

    Instructions: 

    1. Brown onion and garlic in a dash of olive oil.
    2. Add paprika to brown (this enhances the paprika taste considerably)
    3. Add all other ingredients and simmer.
    4. If used with BBQ chicken or other meat or vegetables, soak the meat/veg in the sauce for at least half an hour before barbecuing to enhance the taste.
    5. When serving, add a small dish on each plate, with sauce, for dipping.

    Avocado and Orange Salad

    Avocado and Orange Salad

    The splash of orange citrus, creamy avocado & tangy shallots together create this wonderfully colourful salad perfect for summertime entertaining. Serve it as lunch or as a refreshing side dish perfectly paired with a glass of chilled Pinot Gris 2015.

     

    Chef: Kerry Wicks

    Yield: 2-4 servings

    Ingredients:

    1 Avocado
    1 Large lemon or lime
    1 Juicy Orange (blood oranges are particularly pretty, but not essential)
    1 Large shallot (a small cooking onion can be used in a pinch)
    1 Pour olive oil
    1 Pour dark balsamic vinegar
    1 Tsp. (5 ml) hot curry ground pepper to taste

     

    Instructions:

    1.    Juice the lemon or lime into a bowl and remove any seeds.
    2.    Skin/seed and coarsely chop the avocado into the same bowl. Toss thoroughly, but gently with the lemon or lime juice.

    3.    Coarsely chop the orange into the same bowl.

    4.    Finely chop the shallot or small onion into the bowl and mix in, gently tossing to avoid bruising the avocado.

    5.    Add the remaining ingredients and toss gently.

    6.    Serve at room temperature, though the salad can be chilled briefly if it is ready ahead of other dishes.

    Note: For a different more "French" taste, substitute the orange for a large ripe tomato (when fresh tomatoes are in season) and omit the curry powder.
