One of our favorite spots in the Bay Area is Lake Lagunitas, near Fairfax, CA. What a treat to go on a weekday and have the park almost to ourselves!
We made skewers, a classic provoleta (with a spin), grilled vegetables and even dessert. Dive in!
Barbecue day at Lake Lagunitas, CA from Julia and Julieta on Vimeo.
There's almost no recipe for today, but as a quick check list we are including all the ingredients we used in our Barbecue day.
We used chicken, steak, red and green peppers, onions and mushrooms.
We used zucchinis, portobellos and corn. Straight on the grill.
Caramelized Cherry Tomatoes:
We placed cherry tomatoes on foil, added garlic and olive oil.
Provoleta is a classic treat you'll find at all argentinean parrillas (BBQ!). Typically we use provolone cheese, but today we used a delicious greek cheese - halloumi cheese- that doesn't melt. We added oregano, red pepper flakes and olive oil. If you don't have a small cast iron skillet, you can just use foil.
Egg filled Peppers:
We used red and green peppers, cut them in half to form a basket and place an egg in the middle. Finish with oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, and straight to the grill.
We cut figs in half, place them on foil and cover them with honey.
We grilled all together and came out ready at the same time. Good times!
