Recipes for outdoor entertaining the Kiwi way
Summer just isn’t summer without a classic Kiwi backyard barbecue.

Nadia’s barbecue menu, which starts over the page, is packed full of crowd-pleasers – even the little ones will be on board – and, as always, they’re easy to prepare. And don’t miss the party prep tips on page 47 to make sure your entertaining goes off without a hitch.
