The Food Checklist:

Your pre-barbecue food planning may require a bit of prep. Write a list of all the food, drink and condiments you will require, as well as this, tin foil, paper towels and napkins and cleaning bits. Will you have enough glasses and plates, or do you need paper plates and plastic or paper cups? What are you going to be cooking up? Think up a rough menu including mains, drinks and desserts. Here are some suggestions that work really well for a classic BBQ: burgers, sausages, chicken wings, prawns, grilled veg such as sweetcorn and peppers, ribs, kebabs and fresh salad. Drinks such as the classic lemonade or juices for the kids and wine and beer for the adults. Consider desserts, a good summer option is a fruit salad and ice cream.

Bread and Cheese checklist:

One of the fundamentals of a BBQ is rolls and burger buns. It’s always good to stock up on these and perhaps ahead of time make sure you have a few different varieties, for example, white and wholemeal. In addition to this, what BBQ is complete without cheese? Whether it is cheeseburger slices or grilled halloumi – make sure you are stocked up with plenty of cheese!
