As we all venture outside for summer gatherings with family and friends, here are a few ideas for your BBQ/fire pit cooking adventure. Don’t be afraid to place a pan over your grill, it will work perfectly for simple dishes such as my Greek white beans with tomatoes, lemon and herbs (pictured below) and my gorgeous Santorini tomato fritters. All the other dishes can be made ahead and kept in the fridge until you’re ready to gather around your sharing table.
