Getting ready for a barbeque

Since July 4th is a time honored tradition for barbeques, I want to share some images from my photo shoot from my book's barbeque chapter .  Since my book is all about entertaining with Indian food, my barbeque chaper features an entire spread of Indian barbeque meats.

Here I was in the middle of getting ready for a photo shoot with barbeque food in my backyard.
These three copper containers are tabletop mini tandoor ovens to serve shish kabobs. You can add some hot coals at the bottom to keep the kabobs hot.


Geting ready for the BBQ shoot.





For more memorable centerpieces, tablescapes, and recipes (including gluten free recipes), please check out my book, Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen, at my website komalinunna.com.

  6. Johanna,
    My BBQ party chapter has 15 recipes to satisfy both vegetarians and non-vegetarians such as kabobs, tandoor chicken, tamarind glazed ribs and 5 different drinks to wash all the food down.

  16. Hi Komali,
    Thank you for sharing this look at your wonderful outdoor entertaining area. It appears to go on and on, and the glimpses of your garden appear lush, well-tended, and inviting. Your tables are beautiful at the point we're seeing them. The layered fabrics and the fresh flowers are really setting the stage for what I'm sure is a delicious meal.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend!
