Out and About: Fourth of July

July 6, 2010

Fourth of July means grilling on a Brooklyn rooftop… cold watermelon, grilled guacamole and Pimms cups.

Steve works magic with portobello mushrooms, basting them with olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper and black pepper. They get snatched straight off the grill, before they even have a chance to cool.

For smoky guacamole, throw the avocados on the grill before mashing.

I love how the city skyline glows at dusk.

    How much smoky flavor does the grill impart to the avocado? Is the guacamole served warm?

    Great capture of the event. Looks like everyone is enjoying themselves. I am surprised the hibachi grill was big enough to feed everyone there. I am glad to see my favorite brewery (Brooklyn) in the cooler, just too bad it is not the summer brew. yum
