Nothing like being called up last minute to do a bbq for new clients, but as usual I was able to pull it off without a hitch! (Thank God!) The host couple were friends of friends, who were visiting from Australia on business for a couple of weeks. Call it a Hello/Goodbye barbecue. I love these types of small causal gigs where I get to showcase my personality as well as my food. I adapted a bunch of previously posted recipes and turned them into this simple afternoon barbecue. Here’s a few pics from the day of yours truly in action.
