Introducing Denby’s Great British BBQ
It doesn’t have to be sunny.
It doesn’t even have to be warm.
It doesn’t even have to be dry ….any excuse to fire up the BBQ and we are there.
Living in the UK we have all got stories of standing at the barbeque, tongs in one hand and an umbrella in the other. I can even tell you about one of my daughters birthday parties, when she had me barbequing in the garage, with the garage doors open … In November!
For me a BBQ is all about great tasting food and drink shared with friends. Going ‘al fresco’ allows you to break down the rules, be as casual as you like in the way that you serve and eat the food, and Denby is perfect for that. It’s all about having fun!
The Denby made in England heritage is a big part of what makes the pottery so special so it is only fitting that we get the meat and vegetables from our local butcher and greengrocers. Not only is the quality fantastic but they are so friendly and helpful and always keen to give their own recommendations for a great barbeque.
Having worked at Denby for the past 28 years I do have a rather eclectic range of pottery. From old to new patterns as well as some great studio pieces from my favourite potters. A BBQ is the ideal place to bring out some of my much loved items.
The humble bowl really comes into its own at a BBQ and of course we have a great range of sizes and colours to choose from. The small rice bowl is just right for dips and nibbles or the pasta bowl is an excellent serving bowl for potato salad or guacamole.
Featuring our Denby Bowls Collection.
Don’t be afraid to use your Denby outside. We all know that pottery is not indestructible but Denby really is made of strong stuff and should be used for any occasion both indoors and out. The rich glazes look fantastic in the sun and help to make the food look even better.

Denby can be used throughout the whole process….. Whether it’s the preparing of the food, carrying bits and pieces outside, cooking of course, serving, eating and then storing some of the leftovers …. How great is that!
Featuring our Denby Heritage Orchard Plates.
We are still talking about how tasty the burgers were and how the peaches were to ‘die for’ which inspires me to search out exciting, new recipes ready for the next barbeque.
