In the August issue of Fort Worth Texas Magazine my column moves us toward the end of summer with a lovely outdoor meal that brings a touch of elegance to your outdoor table, Grilled Cornish Game Hens, marinated and cooked on a cedar plank, with Crispy Smashed Potatoes cooked in the oven at high heat until golden and crispy, and good 'ole corn-on-the-cob, cooked in the husks on the grill and then slathered with my brother Gregg's famous lime butter.
This is a meal you're going to love. I served it all family style on one big lovely platter with a bottle of sparkling Rose. The perfect elegant summer meal.
Watch how simple and easy it is to make my Crispy Smashed Potatoes
Here's the full version of the August column. These Cornish hens are amazing, and so easy. If you don't want to cook them on a cedar plank on the grill, just cook them in the oven.
And as always, many thanks to Central Market Fort Worth for providing the groceries for my column and videos.
