Double Date Cookout

On Monday, Malcolm & Vanessa kindly invited us over to cook in the “Malclaboratory: Where the magic happens”, complete with a spanking new grill! If you followed me on Instagram, you would have probably known that the four of us cooked up a storm that evening. (Well I mainly watched, learned, snapped and tried my best not to get in the way.) That storm looked, smelt and tasted pretty damn good. It’s always more fulfilling when you’re the chef even if the food’s not Michelin Star material.

Menu for the night

1. Alaskan King Crab Aglio Olio
2. Grilled Tiger Prawns
3. Spinach & Ricotta Cheese Ravioli
4. Garlic & Herbs Bangers

I believe the pictures do a rather good job taking you through all the chopping, grilling and boiling. With that, I present to you Double Date Cookout: Behind the scenes
