ALL FIRED UP For this TCHIN TCHIN, we teamed up with three experts - chef Jean-François Plante, master griller Steven Raichlen and popular sommelier Jessica Harnois - to put together a smokin' hot issue devoted to barbecuing. We serve up not only mouth-watering recipes that will wow family and friends, but also plenty of practical advice and terrific food-wine pairing suggestions. Speaking of family and friends, lots of excuses for get-togethers are on the horizon, from Father's Day and Saint-Jean-Baptiste celebrations to summer vacation. So now is the perfect time to replenish your home bar and try out some new drinks. Rum, raspberry liqueur, pastis and pink lemonade... vodka and fresh apple juice... Amarula, Limoncello and crushed ice... For these and other ultra-refreshing concoctions, turn to our Cocktails section. Since the patio is everyone's favourite summertime gathering place, we asked our guest sommelier to spill her secrets on easy and tasteful entertaining. See what she has to say in Essentials. And for a selection of red and white wines that will go down beautifully whatever the occasion, check out the Taste-Tag File. Have a great summer!
