Celebrate the last days of summer with a simple feast, starring a messy sandwich, fresh corn and a triple-scoop of your favourite ice cream. Bonus: The slow cooker does the heavy lifting while the grill works on the appetizers, allowing you to spend some extra time outside with a batch of icy lager and limes.

Cocktail

Chilled perfection. It’s also an easy make-ahead, so when it’s time for a five o’clocktail, all you need to do is give it a quick run through the blender.

Starter
Charred cherry tomato bruschetta and peach bruschetta
Grilled baguette paired with juicy, in-season fruit is the perfect way to get the meal started as you can crisp up the chicken and cook the corn on the grill.

Ice cream
