Vanilla Mayonnaise
Combine the eggs, mustard, salt and vanilla seeds in a bowl. Using a hand blender, blitz the ingredients together. Slowly add in the oil, a little at a time. When the mayonnaise has emulsified, stir in the vinegar. Cover until needed.

Chilli sauce
Combine all of the ingredients for the chilli sauce and place in the fridge, covered, overnight. Cut the lobsters in half, lengthwise, clean and place a skewer from the top, halfway through. Season with salt and pepper, then coat with some olive oil. Add some of the chilli sauce on the flesh side. Place them on a hot grill or barbecue for approximately 2 minutes on each side. Once cooked, remove from the grill and place them on a platter. Squeeze some lemon juice on top. Serve with the Vanilla Mayonnaise.

Best gift ever!

My family knows how much I adore having loved ones around and cooking up a storm - so they know just what to get me when I was given the 4K! So sleek and intricately designed, the quality is ridiculously good.

Dad absolutely loves his new 4K

After doing my research I decided to buy the 4K as Dad’s fiftieth present. Let’s just say he is truly in love. I can only speak from my experience, but the quality of food created from this barbeque is like no other.
