It’s BBQ time, and we will all need onions, garlic chilli and herbs to flavour and scent our sizzling feasts… oh and quite possibly a brolly! Sit this unique tree in your kitchen to add colour and flavour to this month.

You will need…

  • A selection of small onions. I used red and brown.
  • Garlic
  • Chillies, I used red and green to add colour
  • Rosemary, bay and olive sprigs
  • A pot of choice
  • Kitchen foil
  • Marzipan

Step 1
Stuff your pot with foil.

Step 2
Mould your marzipan into a cone shape, creating a food safe base. Place onto your pot

Step 3
Using the toothpicks arrange your onions and garlic around the tree evenly. I used a chopping board to help plunge the toothpick into the harder onions and garlic.

Step 4
Now add the chillies

Step 5
Finish your tree with sprigs of herbs

Place in your kitchen and fire up the BBQ, Happy sizzling!
