Barbecues aren't usually the most exciting things, but they are now! I've just been to the launch of Everdure barbecues at Heston Blumenthal's pub and restaurant, The Crown in Bray. Designed in conjunction with Heston and made in BBQ central - Australia, they come in some really lovely colours and great designs.
There's Hub (huge, for big parties) , Fusion (my fave - pictured below) and the cute little Cube - all of which cook with charcoal with an electric ignition system to get you started.
Then there is the gas range made up of the Furnace and Force, for those of you who want your food in a hurry, and again in great colours.
