Recipes for out­door en­ter­tain­ing the Kiwi way

Sum­mer just isn’t sum­mer with­out a clas­sic Kiwi back­yard bar­be­cue. Siz­zling steaks and sausies, fresh garden sal­ads, juicy corn cobs and ice-cold drinks are a recipe for suc­cess when bring­ing friends and fam­ily to­gether for af­ter­noon an­tics. 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.
