July 4 – Time for a Barbecue but with a Twist and Taste of the Levant

Well July 4 has arrived at last. Here is the first of my BBQ recommendations, Yummy Middle Eastern spiced Chicken!


The biggest holiday of the American Summer approaches.

The charcoal alight! The charcoal alight!

In just over a week, the Stars & Stripes will be decorating everything that doesn’t move and some things that do.  The scent of gunpowder from fireworks and outdoor grilling will fill the warm seasonal air, as America celebrates its independence from us Brits.

So, what more apt at this time of the year than to  share  some of my family’s favorite recipes for barbecues with you (meat, sides and booze) and I promise, hand on heart, this will be a burger and hot dog free zone.   But, if not these mainstays of BBQ land, what?  My preference is for something spicy, fresh and ethnic and in this, my first post for the big day, I will explore an easy to prepare recipe of Middle Eastern origin which deliver this in spades.

With a wonderful blend of dusky exotic spices and a taste of the Levant, it is the delicious and savory:

Almost as food obsessed as my Beagle Hound Millie, I am a keen amateur cook and consumer of fine chow with a weakness for the spices of Middle Eastern and North African cuisine and an obsession with Chu Toro, British Cheese and Single Malt Orkney Island Scotch (go figure), I slice at warp speed (scars on the fingers to prove it) and can rustle up everything from Mashed Potato to Maki in the flash of an eye!
