Rabbit Saddle & Caprese Bruschetta

The reason why this might be viewed as difficult is because rabbit meat is much less popular than let’s say poultry and so are its cooking techniques. The reality is that grilling a rabbit properly is just as difficult as properly grilling a chicken breast (we deliberately said ‘as difficult as’ and not ‘as easy as’). However, we hope that after seeing this video you will feel adventurous enough to take on this challenge.
Here is your shopping list (for 4 servings as a side dish; for main course just double the amounts):
– ca. 1kg (2 pieces 500g each) of a saddle of a rabbit
– smoked bacon – 4 slices 5mm thick, slightly longer than your rabbit pieces
– 12 cherry tomatoes
– 250g of fresh mozarella
– fresh herbs: basil, thyme, rosemary, sage…
– 1 clove of garlic
– salt, pepper and olive oil
– ciabatta or baguette.

Seabass & Grilled Vegetables

Before we get to the ingredients list we want to point that with a fireplate barbecue you don’t need to prepare anything in advance. Just get your fresh ingredients and head straight to the grill. The secret lies in the level of control which you have over the cooking process. If something grills too fast – move it further away from the fire. If something grills too slow – bring it closer to flames. When you find that certain ingredient is done enough – just move it to the corner of your fireplate and it will stop cooking, but stay warm. That way you can easily cook and cut or chop in the same time and look like a professional show cook! Cooking in high temperatures, with fresh herbs and with natural wood makes the food juicy, aromatic and flavorfull.
Ingredients list (for 4 servings as a side dish; for main course we recommend using one whole fish per serving):
– 2 fresh seabass fillets (trout will also work perfectly here)
– 1 or 2 lemons
– fresh herbs: thyme, rosemary, sage…
– 1.5kg green asparagus
– 4 pak choi heads
– 250g of shimeji mushrooms (or different kind according to your taste)
– 80g of kale
– 4 tablespoons of Romesco sauce
– ciabatta or baguette
– salt, pepper, olive oil.
for the salsa:
– 3 bell peppers of different colors
– 8 cherry tomatoes
– 2 challots
– juice of half of a lemon

Razor Clams & Broad Beans

The beauty of this recipie lies in its simplicty, yet the end effect is so flavorfull and aromatic. It also shows that with a fireplate grill you can not only grill or roast but also boil things – pretty versatile piece of equipment.
Ingredients list (for 4 servings as a main course; for a side dish use half of the amounts):
– 1 kg of fresh razor clams
– 1 large onion
– 5-6 cloves of garlic
– 250g of fresh broad beans
– 1/2 lime
– parsley
– ciabatta or baguette
– salt, pepper, olive oil.

Classic Steak & Mushrooms

The key to perfect tasting beef steak is getting the highest quality meat possible. The cut should be aged (for leaner meat wet-aged is fine, for fattier meat we recommend dry-aged). Although it is not necessary to marinate your steak as we did, it is very important that the meat is at room temperature at the time of cooking. If you keep it in your fridge take it out an hour before grilling. Choose your preferred beef cut – if you are not sure what you want, google ‘beef cuts’ and make a decision.
The ingredients list for today (for 4 servings as main course):
– 4 aged beef steaks of your choice
– 2 medium size onions
– 400g of champignons
– 250g of oyster mushrooms
– 1 medium to large size zucchini
– fresh parsley
– 5-6 cloves of garlic
– fresh rosemary
– olive oil, salt & black pepper.
