There is nothing I like more than smelling food I find tasty. Fresh bread, bacon, toast, curry and of course a barbeque. What I mean by that is the lovely smokey smell you get from either coals or wood. Here are two great recipes which you may like to try out, they are a bit different from the normal stuff people usually cook, so give them a go, it will be worth the effort and will impress your guests.

Honey Glazed PoussinsThese glazed and grilled baby chickens would be good barbequed, too. Depending on the appetite of your guests and the size of the poussins, this recipe will serve 2 -4.
