BBQs by Lac Léman

Recently we have been taking advantage of the warm weather and long days to go for swims in the lake (which is not so warm) and having picnics and BBQs in the park by the lake.

We've had to set aside our Australian bias for giant gas-powered BBQs and bought ourselves charcoal-powered disposable units, which always leave you wondering if you will be eating raw meat for dinner until the heat finally kicks in.

It stays light until quite late in the evening, so there's always plenty of time to make up for any lack in cooking performance, and also to polish off a bottle of wine. Best of all, when its time to head home, you just pour some water on the BBQ and throw it in the bin with the rest of your rubbish!
