This weekend I had the great privilege to attend a glorious late summer barbecue at the home of the lovely Jodie and Toddy. Jodie’s family own a fishing business, a traditional smokehouse and a fabulous fish restaurant (The Butley Orford Oysterage), so we knew right off the bat we were in for a treat!
As well as the usual barbecue fare, we were utterly spoilt with Pinney’s amazing smoked salmon, Pina Coladas (there was a cuban theme and Todd makes a mean Pina!) and more lobsters than I could count!
As if that wasn’t enough, Jodie and her mum had prepared not one but 3 desserts! A highly alcoholic Rum Baba (my absolute favourite! How did you know Jodes!?), creamy Lemon Posset and some gorgeous little Raspberry and Almond cakes, which looked just as perfect as they did in the What Katie Ate cookbook.
It was agreed by all that none of us could ever compete with a barbecue of this standard, so we’re giving up and all barbecues from now on will be Jodie and Todd’s responsibility.
I’ve put together a selection of pictures from the evening, I hope they inspire your next shindig!
