Liz’s Team ‘BBQ’

From time to time we host a get together for Liz’s staff at our house. We always start out planning a very informal barbecue but I just can’t pass up an opportunity to cook great food. Last time some of the staff arrived cricket bat under their arm and esky in hand ready for the BBQ only to find candlelit tables with a grand buffet. The guests are a real multicultural mix with the minority being Australian born and raised. I recall one evening where there was French, German, Greek, Africans, Dutch, and Polish being spoken, fortunately great food speaks all languages. Things get interesting trying to work out a menu that caters for an ever changing number of people (Liz often invites other guests without telling me) and catering for vegetarians and lactose intolerant guests. Nevertheless it seems to all work out and we have a good time. Here is the plan for this weekend’s event.
