‘Lord ah’ mercy! It’s nearly that time of year again; time to dust off my oil drum barbeque, stock up the fridge, and gather my nearest and dearest for the first barbeque of the year. There’s nothing I love more than cooking up food for my friends and family in the heat of the summer sun, but I know it’s not always easy to keep barbeque food new and exciting.

‘With this in mind, I’ve created two tasty new recipes using my special, but not so secret, ingredient…you know it, Reggae Reggae Sauce! You’ll need a little preparation time for these fabulocious recipes, but I promise you won’t fail to impress when you dish these babies out.

So, what are you waiting for? Put some music in your food and make your first, and every, barbeque of the season one to remember!”
