Add a zesty flavour hit to your next barbecue by throwing on these tasty Farro Kitchen marinated chicken drumsticks in three flavours — Teriyaki, Harissa and Honey Soy.

The Farro team has done the leg work for you by prepping their signature butterflied lamb in one of two different marinades: garlic, rosemary and thyme, or Moroccan. Pop into the oven or on the barbecue and just like that you’ve got mouthwatering butterflied lamb perfect for dining al fresco.

It’s time to chow down on fresh corn on the cob. Prepare on the barbecue or in the oven, before adding a knob of Lewis Road butter and a sprinkling of Culley’s Chipotle Salt. Or, step things up a notch with some shaved Pecorino cheese — this sensational combo is foodie heaven.

Add glorious globes of Clevedon Marinated Buffalo Cheese to your summer salads, or serve as a spread with crusty bread on a generously sized shared platter. Spice lovers will salivate over the chilli flavour — the perfect addition to a summer spread.

Whatever you want to call them, sausage season is here and we’re not complaining. This summer, we’ll be noshing on Woody’s Free Range Farm sausages. Nestled in the foothills of the Tararua Range, lies this free-range farm and butchery that specialises in a range of pork products from heritage pigs that have lived a pleasant, healthy life spent outdoors. Woody’s Free Range Farm offers a plethora of bacon and meat grinds, as well as a variety of sausage flavours — ranging from traditional Cumberland to Chorizo Verde packed with coriander and capsicum. Consider these saussys your barbecue BFF.
