Grilled Asparagus and Squash
Total Time: about 20 minutes
Flour tortillas make a wonderful platform for a grilled desert in this recipe from Brad Barrett. Two tortillas form a sandwich that can be filled with sliced fruits and cheeses or in this case with a sweet ricotta cheese filling and chocolate morsels. This one hits all the sweet spots for a great grilled dessert, and it’s an easy dessert that can be made several hours ahead. It’s great served with a dollop of ice cream.
This classic sauce is thought to be of Tunisian origin, but is found throughout all of Africa. It is used to flavor couscous and grilled dishes such as Kebabs. Harissa Sauce reflect the region's love of spicy combinations all with a definite cumin and coriander flavor. Cover this sacue with a thin film of olive oil and it will keep up to a couple of months in the refrigerator.
Buddy Foster: This recipe is Buddy’s own creation, and he says it came about over 40 years of cooking. The herb mixture gives the chicken a very zesty, fresh flavor, and this is an especially tasty roasted chicken recipe for the spring and summer months, when fresh herbs are plentiful. You can use a whole chicken or pieces. Remember that pieces will cook faster than a whole, so adjust your times accordingly. Buddy’s friend Alan augmented this recipe by throwing one jalapeño into the blender while he was making the sauce, and he cooked the chicken “beer-can” style. Buddy suggests cooking extra; the leftovers are great!
Howlin’ Hollar is a sweet heat whose fire kicks in shortly after the sweet. Read Mark Masker's article about making these spicy drumsticks on the Burn! Blog here.
Sizzlin' Sauces' Mojo's Tapenade blends Kalamata olives with sun dried tomatoes into a great spread that goes wonderfully with not just French bread but also burgers and dogs. If you want something sweeter, try the Razing Cane Garlic Relish. It's sweet, sour, and has just a hint of habanero. Recently, Mark Masker snuck some of each into the Italian sausage sandwiches he was grilling up before a game for some friends and they loved it.

This blend is the hottest curry powder we found in Africa, although some pastes like berbere might top it on the heat scale. Traditionally in Malawi, the spices are sun-dried before being ground and are not toasted. Note the large amount of cloves in this recipe, which is a possible influence form nearby Madagascar, a clove-growning island.
