Heavenly Honey n’Cream Grill-glazed Nectarines

go back Heavenly Honey n’Cream Grill-glazed Nectarines Finally, if you needed to be told that you can char-grill fruit and don’t want to put on a couple of ounces, don’t try this, simple, but extravagant, self-indulgent, high in fat and definitely not one of your 5-a-Day, but absolutely delicious! Serving Size4 What you need Nectarines […]

Enchanting Chilli & Pineapple Spare-ribs

go back Enchanting Chilli & Pineapple Spare-ribs Forget the local Chinese; this Asian Delight is a real grill-star of the Orient and I got the idea for this dish at, believe it or not a pub on Lantau Island. Simple to both prepare and BBQ, these ribs taste great being, sweet, sour and spicy all […]

Brilliant Beef & Guacamole Foodie Fajitas

go back Brilliant Beef & Guacamole Foodie Fajitas Who said Fajitas were simple ‘street-food’, this is a ‘foodie-twist’ on a Mexican staple. The combination of piquant steak, spicy, fruity flavours balanced by a sharp creamy, cheesy taste remind me of Tequila fuelled night on the beach in the Baya. Serving Size4 What you need 500g […]

Charming Chicken, Prosciutto & Sage Skewers

go back Charming Chicken, Prosciutto & Sage Skewers Who said skewers were only for the local kebab shop, this delicious twist on an old theme is remarkably easy to do, combining piquant chicken and prosciutto with stale, olive oil and Balsamic soaked rustic bread. Served with a chilled Prosecco, perfection. Serving Size4 What you need […]

Cool Coriander & Ginger Lamb chops

go back Cool Coriander & Ginger Lamb chops Lamb works really well on the Barbi and new season best of all. This recipe is a variation on a dish picked up at a small roadhouse on the way out of Bondi, the slightly fusion edge enhances the overall flavour. Serve in an upright triangle, bones […]

Best-ever Burger with Pancetta, Avocado & Blue cheese butter

go back Best-ever Burger with Pancetta, Avocado & Blue cheese butter How the humble burger has grown-up, so discount it at your peril. Food snobs may try to decry, but I think a properly made and grilled burger, with proper add-ons is just about unbeatable – and for me the only way to eat – […]

Spécial Spiced Corsican Côte de Bœuf

go back Spécial Spiced Corsican Côte de Bœuf A real Barbi ‘pièce de résistance’ this classic French dish was actually inspired by my favourite haunt – Corsica. The juicy, spicy meat topped with fragrant Herbs de Maquis is a perfect reminder of a beautiful, unspoilt Island – best with a glass of Nielluccio! Serving Size4 […]

Sizzlin’ Sea Bass with Fennel & Sweet Basil

I think this is one of the simplest, yet most impressive alfresco snacks or starters that you can prepare. I prefer baby or young asparagus with lots of Parmigianino, but please remember to shave; do not grate!

Classic Chicken Ciabatta

go back Classic Chicken Ciabatta This is a long-time Barbi favourite. Seemingly easy but can be deceptively difficult to get perfect! A fruity, slightly exotic recipe that I created following a somewhat rambling tour around Tuscany – one too many Sangiovese’s and you’ve burnt the Ciabatta! Serving Size2 What you need 2 skinless chicken breasts […]

Marvellous Miso, Mustard & Sesame Aubergines

go back Marvellous Miso, Mustard & Sesame Aubergines As if it needed to be proved here is a superb and simple example of a vegetable that’s just great on the grill. Aubergine is in my opinion vastly underrated; the Miso and sesame add a wonderfully oriental flavour, balanced by the Dijon and honey! Serving Size4 […]
