Summertime begs for quick, nutritious and portable food so you can get back to enjoying the great outdoors. Tuna sandwiches are a great staple but how about turning it into an Asian-inspired wrap by using rice paper and a lot of aromatic herbs. Rice paper comes as dry, brittle sheets that transform into easy-to-use wrappers that show off the beauty of the ingredients inside.
A pulled pork sandwich is a thing of beauty. Tender meat glistening with spicy, smoky flavour piled high on a soft bun with no adornment save for some tangy, crunchy 'slaw. The time-honoured method for making succulent pulled pork requires a smoke pit, a whole hog, and pulling an all nighter.
Luckily there's a much easier way that's just as tasty. This recipe harnesses the power of slow cooker braising to duplicate the BBQ flavours. This much simpler process skips the time and labour intensive process of grilling and smoking, which leaves more time for pulling and sandwiching. There won't be any smoke of course, but with these flavours no one will even notice.
Bored with beef? Take another burger path. These patties are huge and thin raw but contract to normal juicy size on the grill. They’re fiery on the BBQ, so have a spray bottle of water ready for flare-ups. Easy to prepare and delicious in every way!

The Prince Edward Island International Shellfish Festival is one of my favourite annual events where I get to showcase world-renowned, locally grown mussels, oysters, and of course, lobsters. This is my twist on the classic lobster roll, spiced up with my favourite hot sauce and lined with a paper-thin sheet of seaweed.
My kids love these burritos but they don’t know why. I do though. Lentils are flavour sponges. Lentils do such a good job absorbing the bright sunny flavours of the southwest that no one notices the missing **** in this burrito. They notice the crisp smoky bacon though!
One of the Holy Grails of vegetarian cooking is a meat-free burger that’s tasty, nutritious, full of protein, easy to make and easy to handle. Without the strong protein structure of meat, or the scientific hijinks of processed burgers, it can be tricky to get vegetarian burgers to hold together. This burger uses the strength of bulgur wheat and will easily become one of your favourites.
Who says burgers have to be made from meat? You’ll be amazed at how easy these are to put together, and your guests will be impressed with how tasty they are. They’re packed full of Asian-inspired flavour, a great way to jazz up your next barbecue excursion with something different and healthy.
In many Italian restaurants the menu term “Tuscan Beef” refers to a particular style of serving beef that is always dramatically finished at the table. An extra thick slab of premium beeflarge enough to serve at least four peopleis slowly roasted on a grill and presented to the table with a classic group of ingredients: arugula leaves, extra virgin olive oil, lemon zest and juice, shaved Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, sea salt and freshly cracked peppercorns. The meat is thinly sliced and draped over a salad of sorts. The results are authentically Italian, spectacularly delicious and a great way to satisfy your primal beef craving and show off at your next dinner party.
