Gabbi’s Grilling Tips: 

-Give extra depths of flavor to your cocktails, salads, desserts, and more by grilling your fruits to add caramelization or your veggies for a little char and smokiness

-Finish off grilled meats, fish, and veggies with a drizzle of high quality extra virgin olive oil (We recommend Olive Oil & Beyond Habanero Extra Virgin Olive Oil for an added kick)

-No protein or veggie is finished without our favorite Maldon Salt. This flakey sea salt is a favorite of ours at home and at Gabbi’s!

-Most importantly, have fun! Cooking should never be taken too seriously. Enjoy the process!
