The best of the British BBQ …

The sun is shining and BBQ season and al fresco dining are now in full swing. With lockdown restrictions easing, spending time with friends and family this Summer seems to be looking a little more hopeful… What can be better than sunshine, sausages, and six of your nearest and dearest! However, if a BBQ isn’t for you, why not try private dining with DineIndulge, Lady G’s Yorkshire Flavours, FIG’s Catering or Bramble Catering?

Here are our top 5 holiday homes, perfect for some al fresco dining in North Yorkshire..

Barbecued corn on the cob is a favourite, and this version with a zingy, flavoured butter is a delicious fresh take on the classic.

Absolutely delicious! Cooked and served exactly as described with the addition of some cucumber batons and sriracha on the side for an extra kick as the Mayo and paste are both lovely but not overly spicy. All the family really enjoyed this.
