Serves: ~15 skewers
  • 2 cups red seedless grapes (I love red flame!)
  • 4 Tablespoons high quality fruity olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons light manzanilla sherry OR white balsamic vinegar (peach is especially fantastic)
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed in a mortar and pestle
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon flaky sea salt
  • 1-2 ball (6 ounces) burrata cheese - no judgement, go nuts!
  • fresh basil leaves
  1. Whisk together olive oil, sherry/vinegar, brown sugar, fennel seeds, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Add grapes and toss well to coat. Let marinate for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Skewer 6 grapes per 7" skewer and save the marinade (good GOD save the marinade!).
  3. Heat a grill pan over hight heat and grill grapes for a couple of minutes on each side until you see that gorgeous char.
  4. Serve with a giant ball of burrata and drizzle grapes and cheese generously with marinade. Sprinkle small basil leaves over the top and dive in!
