Do you like steak? As far as we’re concerned, there’s one way to grill it, and that’s Tuscan style! Check out Diane Fluin’s Grilled Tuscan Ribeye, originally posted for Father’s Day but still absolutely applicable.
Ribeye too rich for you this weekend? You can soup up a sirloin with this quick and easy, zesty marinade by Mary Ann Esposito.
Oh, “Tuscan style” is also the way we prefer to grill pork chops. Use John Fodera’s recipe for Tuscan Grilled Pork Chops if you want something inspired by an authentic Italian dish.
Need some wine pairing ideas? Watch our rock-star CEO Cristina Mariani-May suggest wines to pair with summer meals, including grilled dishes, and see The World Wine Guys’ suggested wine pairings as well.
And this isn’t for the grill, but if you’re going to a party and been asked to bring dessert, Cindy Rynning’s Raspberry Cobbler or Nick Stellino’s Cherry Almond Pudding are two refreshing choices using in-season fruits.
