The De Viennes are known to be enthusiastic BBQ practitioners! Be it family, friends or our work team, the success of our barbecues relies on a wide variety of recipes, the quality of spices and the love, that’s without a doubt, the main ingredient. We like to take it easy during the summer so indulging in extended, relaxed, balmy evenings with a variety of salads and cocktails has proven to be the key.
Grilling is definitely the highlight of the event, so get your hands on a BBQ pro – like Philippe – who masters cooking times, as well as the juggling that’s essential when grilling different types of meats and vegetables. It’s a must!
So, prepare the marinades the day before, make sure that the barbecue is functional, and mostly…have fun and happy BBQ!
Ethné de Vienne was born in Trinidad, so spices and cooking have always been a part of her life. She worked in fashion for many years before finally building the renowned Montreal catering service with her husband Philippe. Today, as a full-time spice hunter, she takes great care in maintaining Épices de Cru’s relationships in its vast network of suppliers around the globe. She’ll never deny that any dish can be improved by a little cumin or zaatar, and probably a nice glass of rum!
