Cobham, Surrey: BBQ for 24 people

In leafy Cobham, Surrey, KT11, I was cooking for a 40th birthday party. Fortunately the weather held out, and the whole evening was spent outdoors. Guests were greeted with an eclectic selection of canapés – and then we served grilled meats and fish from the barbecue.


Tiger prawn skewers with pickled ginger and sweet chilli sauce

Mini pissaladieres (buttery soft onions with salty anchovies and juicy olives on a crispy pizza base)

Pea and potato empanadas (tiny crescent shaped pasties made with the lightest pastry and seasoned with chilli, mint and curry powder)

Tortilla crisps topped with a red pepper and chorizo relish

Mixed meats: culatello, salami and chorizo


BBQ Mains

Roast sea bass in banana leaves with ginger, shitake mushrooms and chilli

Squid skewers with cumin, coriander and clams

Beef fillet studded with rosemary and garlic in a salt crust

Cooking the beef in this salt crust keeps it lovely and tender.

Roast sucking pig stuffed with fennel, lemon, thyme and pancetta



Balsamic and rosemary roasted potatoes and red onions

Taboulleh (the classic middle eastern grain salad, studded with dried fruit and fresh pomegranate seeds)

Grilled and marinated vegetables

Baby leaf and herb salad with green beans and parmesan


Onion rings



Salsa Verde

Sweet chilli





Gin and Tonic sorbet

Pear and Grappa sorbet

Caramel ice cream

Hazelnut sablé biscuits

Orange and polenta biscuits
