Turn your BBQ into a surprising meal: BBQ ideas and veggies recipes

BBQ by Appetit Voyage
Stephi's BBQ
Since I was a kid, I always love barbecues. It was a real feast. My dad´s bbq was merguez and chipolatas as starters and then some nice pork chops grillade. In special occasions, we had côte de boeuf!
Later, my brother, the cheese fanatic of the family, introduced the grilled camembert which is now a tradition as well! It is really easy to make and you get a small camembert fondue in 15 minutes!

BBQ is a must for most of us in summer. It is a great way to celebrate the good weather and get together with friends and family around a simple and kind of root cuisine.

When I started to travel and live abroad, I had the chance to share amazing and different BBQ with wonderful friends. For me BBQ is synonymous of laughs and caring.

Some of my best memories, are in Spain with my friends! During the weekends in summer, we were used to organize BBQ in the countryside around Madrid, in some summer houses in the sierra mountains, where the tinto de verano (a mix of red wine with lemonade), and we started with delicious chorizo and all kind of sausages, pork chops and côte de boeuf, veggies,... it was usually too much food.
