Weber, the leading barbecue brand, is offering local foodies and barbecue enthusiasts the chance to taste, touch and smell delicious dishes created by Weber Grill Instructors as part of its Discover Weber event at Frosts Garden Centre, in Frilford, near Abingdon.
A treat for all the senses, this exciting showcase on a selection of dates (1st, 2nd and 3rd July) will include hands-on barbecue demos from the experts, as well as hints and tips on how to cook the ‘Weber Way’ on a selection of award-winning barbecues.
For those who want to try new recipes at home, here are two delicious recipes, inspired by Discover Weber events:
350ml cold water
15g fresh yeast (approx. 5g dry yeast)
2 tsp coarse salt
150 durum spelt flour
500g Italian flour
250g Tomato Sauce
350-400g Mozzarella, or cheese of your choice
Toppings of your choice eg. olives, pepperoni, mushrooms, artichokes
GBS Pizza Stone
GBS Cooking Grate
- Combine the water, beer, oil, and yeast. Add the durum flour and salt and knead well. Add the Italian flour a little at a time until the dough has the right consistency.
- Divide the dough into lumps of 150 g for mini pizzas or 250g for larger pizzas.
- Form each lump of dough into a nice ball, cover with cling film and let it rest in the fridge for at least three hours before using.
- Roll the dough out and cover with tomato sauce, cheese, toppings, and more cheese – in that order.
At the barbecue:
- Prepare the grill for direct heat. Place the GBS Pizza Stone on the GBS Cooking Grate and let it heat up for 15 minutes.
- Place the tray with the pizza onto the grill and cook for 15-20 minutes until done.
- To note: The more toppings you add, the longer the pizza will take to cook. Watch out that your crust doesn’t get burned on the bottom.
50g butter, softened
30g Boursin flavoured with garlic herbs
1 tbsp fresh, chopped parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 prime fillet beef steaks, each weighing about 200g
1 tbsp olive oil
250g bundle asparagus, trimmed, blanched & drained
16 cherry tomatoes on the vine
- Beat together the butter, Boursin, parsley and seasoning, and roll into a log using cling film.
- Chill until hard enough to cut into four slices.
At the barbecue:
- Season the fillet steaks, brush lightly with olive oil and barbecue over direct high heat for three to five minutes each side, turning once.
- Remove the steaks from the barbecue, add a slice of Boursin butter, cover with foil, and then leave to rest for five minutes. This allows the juices to settle (for a fuller flavour) and the butter to melt over the meat.
- Toss the asparagus tips and cherry tomatoes in olive oil and place on the barbecue for a couple of minutes on each side. Season to taste and serve with the steaks.
