Classic long weekend menu

It’s almost the long weekend, and while it may be time to start thinking about what you plan to serve your guests, that doesn’t mean you have to stray too far from the cottage classics. After all, they are classics for a reason. Instead, why not try kicking them up a notch? Rather than using ketchup, top your ‘dog with cider-braised onions or a refreshing Asian salad; in place of regular beef patties, add some Caribbean flavour and create jerk chicken burgers. With recipes for everything from creative meat toppings to cocktails, we’ve got you covered.
