Hot in the City

With the barbecue season hotting up, Electrolux have launched the new E:Volution Barbecue.

Electrolux E:Volution BBQ

Barbecues are synonymous with summer in Australia, where most families cook a meal on the barbecue 2 – 3 times a week. This new barbecue has been designed here in Australia so will complement today’s contemporary outdoor spaces and deliver precise cooking results.

I was fortunate to be at the launch of the E:Volution Barbecue yesterday at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Sydney’s Circular Quay. It was a beautiful day and the view across the quay to the Opera House was sensational.

Chef Ben O’Donoghue put the barbecue through it’s paces and served up a delicious Thai Style BBQ Fish and BBQ Vietnamese Lamb. Ben did say that most people think of barbecues as steak and sausages but there is a whole world of flavours that can just as easily be cooked on the barbecue as they can in the kitchen. And this new barbecue makes it very easy with it’s roasting hood and separate grilling plate.

I wondered if Ben had been playing Spotto with his kids.

Most of us love getting outdoors in the warmer weather and what better way to entertain friends and family than with a shared meal outdoors.

Fire up the barbie, gather round the friends and while away the afternoon in your outdoor room.

Thank you Electrolux for a lovely day and the goodie bag wasn’t half bad either!
