My name is Kirsty Redden and I live in Cambridge, England with my four children and my wonderful husband.
I have been passionate about Bbq for around 3 years now when I became an ambassador for Traeger UK, I have recently become a demo chef for Traeger and have started some event catering so watch this space!
Bbq is not as big here in the UK but I hope I'm helping to change that one day at a time!
I have always been a keen cook and am entirely self taught, I have fond memories of sitting on the kitchen counter watching my mother cook and trying to help her.
My mother and grandmother were definitely my inspiration and I love to eat, which obviously helps!
My dream is to write a cook book which of course will have its fair share of Bbq recipes in it!
Until we meet again
Smoked Confit Tomatoes
My smoked confit tomatoes are perfect for every occasion!
1 punnet of cherry tomatoes
1 whole bulb of garlic peeled
5 sprigs of rosemary or thyme (you choose)
Traeger veggie rub
Sea salt + pepper
Sprinkle of sugar
Sprinkle of dried basil leaves
Put all of the ingredients in a dish ( I use a loaf tin)
Cover everything with olive oil until it just covers
Place in the Traeger at 100c leave it until the tomatoes darken and just burst and the garlic softens, this is normally around 3.5 hours.
Spoon the tomatoes onto some french bread with prosciutto if you like ( reserve the oil for dipping bread in, the whole lot can be jarred and kept for a week of enjoyment but I promise it won't last that long!
