BBQ Recipe Competition

Do you have a favourite barbecue recipe that doesn’t include any meat? We are celebrating being vegetarian and proving that barbecuing isn’t about consuming vast quantities of meat but is about being outside, cooking and socialising with family and friends. What’s more your recipe could win you a new BBQ so you can create even more delicious veggie recipes. Many of the BBQ videos we have made can be just as delicious without the meat; head to our Youtube channel for some inspiration. The Chicken Korma recipe would be just as delicious substituting squash for the chicken or Quorn mince for the beef in the Chilli or try a super creamy Mushroom Risotto cooked in a wok.


The competition runs from: Friday 19th July to Friday 16th August after which top BBQ chef Richard Holden will pick the best recipes.  

A lot of you will know Richard from the many BBQ classes he runs here in store; keep an eye on the Events page for details of his 2020 'A taste of .....' courses. Until then you can watch our many videos on our Youtube channel.
