Krazy for Korean flavors
Korean barbecue has taken off in this country sooner than other international styles. It could be the sticky-sweet-spicy flavors, and also the popularity of Korean barbecue food trucks in the past several years.
George Mason’s Korean barbecue comes with spicy noodles, charred cauliflower and bright veggies.
Another huge food trend, Mediterranean cuisine, is represented with this barbecue spread complete with fresh veggies and the tangy capers.
Visually appealing, Mediterranean chicken skewers are easily assembled ahead of time.
Taste of India
Indian barbecue includes tikka grilled chicken thighs with grilled naan, grilled green paneer (a firm, grill-able cheese) marinated in a mint mixture, lentil soup, chana masala (chickpeas with tomatoes and onions), tandoori roasted fish and cardamom-roasted squash. Beverages included mango lassi and iced chai.
Feelin’ irie in the Caribbean
One of the George Mason chefs is from St. Kitt’s and headed up this menu, which included grilled barbecue jerk chicken.
Skewers are the workhorse of this barbecue series and are easily changed up. The Caribbean skewers featured pineapple.
Asian fusion fun
Gorgeous grilled salmon and smoky-sweet pork make the scene for Asian-fusion barbecue, along with egg rolls, rice and bok choy.
For a cookout style ode to American backyards everywhere, George Mason’s team gathered local ingredients for ground beef hamburgers with “all the fixin’s,” grilled tofu with barbecue sauce, baked beans, turnip greens, squash casserole, mac and cheese, red velvet cake and more.
Fish ‘n chips, elevated
Grilled salmon is the star here, served on buns with creamy coleslaw and crisp red onions.
