With Autumn in the air, I doubt there’ll be many more barbecues this year. I held two last week, cooking the usual hamburgers and hot dogs, both Frankfurters and Lincolnshire sausages. I made skewers with prawns, onions, mushrooms and green, red and yellow peppers. I also did devils on horseback, removing the stones from medjool dates and wrapping them in bacon. The combination of sweet and salty is delicious.
