Summer’s not over! September’s summer afternoons are perfect for barbecuing, pouring yourself a nice, cold glass of BORN ROSÉ, and enjoying the pleasure of toasting together. This year, I’m planning to make the most of the nice weather and the extra-special light at sunset. If you’re up for my sunset barbecue and rosé plan, then take note of what I’m about to tell you. Today I’m bringing you the sweet aroma and taste of the Mediterranean all the way home, thanks to these delicious sauces to accompany your barbecues. Enjoy!
This sauce has accompanied me throughout my entire life and I just can’t resist preparing it for my friends. It goes perfectly with grilled meats or roasted veggies! Here every household has their own recipe for salsa romesco. I’m torn between my mom’s recipe and the one that Delicias Kitchen makes. Serve it with some tostadas, roasted veggies or crudités and...get ready to watch it disappear.
This recipe, which is from my country, is perfect for meat or vegetables. To make allioli the traditional way, you need a head of garlic, 300ml of olive oil, salt and… a mortar! Allioli is prepared calmly and with lots of care, just like @cristigrafia does it. Peel and cut the garlic cloves and crush them up in the mortar. Add the salt and stir. After that, add the oil a little bit at a time, while you continue to stir. When you try it you’ll fly all the way to the Mediterranean. This definitely deserves a toast!
And...Tzatziki as an Appetizer
Greek yogurt makes me go crazy. That’s why ever since I discovered this yogurt and cucumber sauce, tzatziki has become an absolute essential at my barbecues. I started by shyly dipping a couple carrot sticks and now… it’s my absolute fave aperitivo. To prepare it yourself, all you need to do is wash, peel and grate the cucumber until it turns into a puree. Then add salt and leave it to drain for a few minutes. In the meantime, mix the Greek yogurt with oil, a clove of garlic and the juice of half a lemon. Season to taste and incorporate the cucumber puree. It’s extra yummy cold!
Long live afternoon barbecues and toasts with BORN ROSÉ!
