Recipes, ideas and upcoming BBQ nights
May sees the start of the BBQ season – it’s one of ours, and Britain’s, favourite summer pastime! An opportunity to meet up with friends and wind down after a busy week. Here at The Rosevine, we take our BBQ evenings seriously, lots of great food, add to that our stunning sea views from the lawn, garden games and of course a cocktail or two, this is what summer evenings are made of. Come rain or shine we will be British and barbecue regardless.
We have lots of barbecue inspiration for you, starting with our team who have put together some of their favourite BBQ food, and we have a burger bap recipe from our House Chefs, as well as some dates for upcoming BBQ nights at The Rosevine. Residents and non-resident guests absolutely welcome!
Some of our favourite BBQ ideas:
Jess, Marketing – A great one for all the family, older kids can even get involved in helping put them together, you can’t go wrong with chicken (or any other meat you fancy) and vegetable kebabs. Or for vegetarians replace the chicken with halloumi served with sweet chilli sauce.
Felicia, Waitress – Originally from Canada, Felicia likes nothing better than the really fun and effective beer can chicken – a real crowd pleaser. A whole chicken resting on a can of beer and roasted in the BBQ, cook until perfectly moist and serve.
Albert, Junior Sous Chef – A great dessert or even breakfast treat, wrap bananas stuffed with honey or chocolate in tin foil and leave to go gooey on the grill before serving with fresh fruit, yogurt, cream or ice cream.
Nicola, Events and Marketing – Using the freshest seafood is perfect for serving up on the babrcue and looks pretty impressive too, like tiger prawn kebabs with garlic and chilli.
Joe, Director – Hailing from South Africa, we love Joe’s simple idea of throwing a large steak on the barbecue, or a “Braai” as it’s known in SA, and opening a lovely bottle of local white wine, served with a dose of British weather!
The Rosevine’s burger baps recipe:
- Burger baps
- Ingredients (Makes 10)
- 200ml warm water
- 56g soft butter
- 418g strong white flour
- 50g sugar
- 1 ¼ tsp salt
- 32g fresh yeast or 13g dry yeast / 9g quick yeast
Add the butter, flour and salt to a mixer with a dough hook and mix until combined. In another bowl add the sugar to the warm water until dissolved and then add the yeast and mix together until dissolved. Add to the dry ingredients and mix at a low speed and once incorporated increase the speed and mix for 5 minutes.
Once mixed, put the dough in a bowl and allow to rise in a warm place making sure the bowl is cling film wrapped to keep in the heat. Once doubled in size weigh out 90g for each bap and roll in the palms of your hand on the table top and put on a baking sheet. Leave to rise for a further half an hour. Then egg wash gently and cook in the oven at 180°C for 18 minutes. Add a tray of hot water to the oven and steam for a further 2 minutes.
Our upcoming BBQ nights:
Our House Chefs serve up a real feast on our BBQ evenings; local meat, seafood as well as vegetarian options, salads and homemade bread. A real family affair, we have lots of garden games for the children, table tennis, climbing frame and mini football nets on the lower lawn. The BBQ evenings start at 6.30pm. Join us for our happy hour beforehand, from 4-6pm!
