Bahrain Grand Prix™

This weekend we cook to Bahrain. A few years back when this all started, we were all sitting at our local bar saying, “What should we cook for Bahrain?” A friend of ours Lisa, who is very clever with words giggled, “You should just make sand-wiches and desert!” Genius. It’s been a tradition ever since and the possibilities are endless.

The Bahrain Grand Prix™ is held at the Bahrain International Circuit.

Here’s a cool track diagram from Wikipedia!

Here’s what you need to know:
⇒This was an amazing race last year! Nico and Lewis had an epic battle that Lewis ended up winning.
⇒Last year was also the first time this race was held at night and it will be a night race again this year!
⇒Heat conditions should work in the Ferrari’s favor.
⇒Happy Belated Birthday to Sir Frank Williams!
⇒Let’s see if Nico can walk the walk, or just continue to talk, or maybe we should call it whine?

Our menu for Sunday will be carb loaded with classic sand-wiches from around the globe.
We will start with cocktails, of course. Sage put together a fruity concoction fit for a desert party with her Tequila Sunsets.


Then for a great middle-eastern inspired sandwich, we made grilled Lamb Pita Burgers with an easy homemade Tzaziki Sauce. The unique cooking method is delicious and a must-try!


We fancied up an Italian-American classic Caprese Sandwich with a balsamic glaze and grilled bread.


For a light refreshing bite, we whipped up English Cucumber Sandwiches


And what kind of sandwich party would it be without grilled cheese? We stuffed them full with our Grilled Chicken and Gruyere Sandwich with Chipotle Cream Sauce


For “desert” we started with a classic middle-eastern ingredient: pistachios! Our homemade Pistachio Ice Cream will dust your socks off (sand pun intended).

And why not throw in one more sandwich? Pile up a few Desert Ice Cream Sandwiches homemade gluten-free white chocolate macadamia nut cookies!


We hope you can enjoy a few of our favorite recipes for Bahrain on Sunday! Other great options would be peanut butter and jellies, roast beef and horseradish cream sliders, BLT’s, or even a curried chicken salad sandwich. Happy Race Weekend!
