Maille's best Summer BBQ recipe's
BBQ season is here and this really is an area I feel most comfortable with, an Aussie that turned out to love mustard so much he became a mustard Sommelier, so I feel I rightfully own this corner because barbecuing, grilling and marinading goes hand in hand with mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise right?
The thing is that mustard is not only for meat, it has been associated with it since the early 13th century, but why?
Food knowledge on preserving was simply not widespread and of course fridges did not exist, but people believed that as mustard was antibacterial, if you ate it with bad aged meat you would avoid getting sick. Today we know this is a myth, however it was enough to stick in our heads for centuries that mustard was only to be consumed with meat.
So back to the BBQ! As an Aussie we literally grow up with the first cooking lesson being the BBQ, we would be sent out to clean the hot plate on the barbie, which would have us salivating because you could smell the previous BBQ smells and you also knew what was coming!
The most important thing in a BBQ is patience, you need to marinate for at least 1 hour, and you need your meat and veggies to be just above room temperature otherwise you end up with tough meat and soggy vegetables.
