Tom Kerridge demonstrates how to cook dishes inspired by the kind of pub classics we enjoy eating outdoors in a great British beer garden. This is casual unpretentious food, perfect for sharing with friends and family.
When it comes to cooking outdoors, Tom feels Britain is doing something wrong - there is no excuse for burnt burgers or raw sausages. He believes that outdoor cooking should be given the same love and attention as cooking in the kitchen and he wants to show people how to do it properly. He pays homage to the retro classic chicken in a basket that he enjoyed eating as a teenager, and cooks his version with a southern-fried twist. Then, he heads to Cornwall, where he shows off how to make a fishy alternative to a regular burger using freshly caught mackerel, pollack and lobster grilled on a beachside barbie.
Tom's got more surprises up his sleeve with his delicious maple cake baked on the barbecue. Plus, for an extra special show-stopping bit of meat, Tom heads to his butcher for some beef short ribs that he cooks in a sweet sticky barbecue glaze and serves up with a delicious warm tomato salad. This really is how to do outdoor food properly.
