Smoked Vegetable Tapenade Crostini
We’re a big fan of anything cooked with smoke, and these crunchy crostinis are perfectly complemented by the smoky veggie tapenade. This appetizer can serve any size crowd, and the tapenade can be made well in advance for quick and easy service. Find the recipe here.

Orange Glazed Carrots with Mint
We couldn’t miss including carrots in an Easter dinner, and this root vegetable dish is packed with complex flavour. The tangy orange-ginger sauce combined with bright and refreshing mint elevates this classic veggie side. Find the recipe here.
Roasted Rosemary Potatoes
Roasted fingerling potatoes are another classic side that pairs well with just about anything. They’re low effort but highly enjoyable. Add a few sprigs of rosemary, some salt and pepper, and you’re done. Find the recipe here.
Smoked Salmon with Dijon Cream Sauce
Are you looking for a distinctive fish Friday recipe? How about smoked salmon drizzled in creamy Dijon sauce? This recipe works well with many types of flavourful fish. Try using trout or sole for something completely different. Find the recipe here.
Smoked Rotisserie Duck
This is one of the best ways to create a succulent and flavourful duck! Cooking on a rotisserie allows the duck to baste in its own fat and juices, so the meat doesn’t dry out. The savoury spice blend is complemented by the bold smoky flavour from the pellet grill. Find the recipe here.
Rotisserie-Style Leg of Lamb
The brine for this leg of lamb is filled with traditional flavours that subtly come through the strong flavour of lamb. Higher quality lamb, such as lamb from New Zealand, has a milder taste and will work best. Find the recipe here.
This cake is an incredibly simple recipe and perfect for the grill. It’s a wonderful springtime dessert, rich and dense and loaded with fresh blueberries. Add a drizzle of icing for a dash of sweetness. Find the recipe here.
Chocolate Soufflé with Apricot Brandy Sauce
This dessert is certain to impress your guests and satisfy their tastebuds. The warm chocolate soufflé is topped with rich chocolate and apricot brandy sauce for a truly decadent dessert. Sprinkle some orange zest for a bright and tangy pop of flavour. Find the recipe here.
