A big hit was of course the BBQ. We just put everything there and if someone wanted the meat cooked they would stand around the BBQ and grill away. A very social way to cook as the crew was all happily standing there, grilling away and having a drink and a good time. There are prawns, chicken, steaks, sausages and fish fillets, everything marinated and just waiting to be eaten.
Then there is naturally the "normal" buffet section with a little carvery, a lovely roast porkleg and a marinated and slow cooked pork belly which was just melting on the tongue. Can't do without French Fries on a crew party, but then there is as well pasta, Asian vegetables and of course plenty of fragrant, steamed rice and the Filipino bread rolls, rich in butter and then topped with sugar and....Cheddar! Sounds strange, but this mild cheddar goes really well with it. Often there is some ham in the bread as well, really, a lovely combination!
