Summer BBQ Ideas From Clubhouse La Grille

Summer BBQ

This year marks the 25th anniversary for Clubhouse La Grille. In honour of this anniversary, McCormick arranged a special afternoon filled with flavour, fun and spices.

Since we were so impressed with the spread, we wanted to share these fresh and tasty ideas with you!

The event was held at the Ol’ Steam Whistle Brewery here in Toronto. The room quickly filled up with food lovers –  drawn by the linger smell of BBQ. Divided by stationaries, each chef standing at their post patiently awaited to uncover some of this year’s summer forecasted BBQ trends. But before scrolling down to check out what these chefs had in store, how about starting with simple mouth watering appetizers?

Step One: Bacon

First on the menu, these simple bite-size ice-cream bacon cups. Yes that’s right, bacon ice-cream!! Topped off with a cherry tomato. Delicious!

Veggie Friendly Saves The Day

Don’t worry BBQ season hasn’t forgotten about us vegetarians. Instead of traditional corn on the cob, try serving at your next BBQ party this “Old Bay Grilled Corn Pico de Gallo” dish. Simply add corn to your Bruschetta mix this summer.
