Summer entertainment at Biltmore was a favorite pastime for the Vanderbilts and their guests. From birthday parties in the Rose Garden to picnics on the grassy slopes of Mt. Pisgah, warm weather offered the perfect excuse to leave formal dining behind and enjoy a gathering in the great outdoors.

Artisan Serveware CollectionInspired by their example, we’ve paired pieces from our Artisan Serveware Collection with three easy “chill, grill, and thrill” steps to simplify your summer entertaining whether you’re in the kitchen, on the deck, by the pool—or wherever your plans take you.

Chill, Grill, and Thrill

1) Chill: First, let’s start with an easy and delicious recipe for Tomatillo Grilled Skirt Steak from our Biltmore chefs. The tomatillo “salsa” doubles as a marinade for the steak, so prepare that first and let the meat chill for 1–3 hours.

2) Grill: place the marinated steak on the grill for about 10 minutes or until it reaches your preferred level of doneness. Remove from heat and place it on our Artisan Acacia Wood Carving Board, allowing it to rest for a few minutes.

Garnish with fresh heirloom tomatoes, dressed in lemon juice and olive oil and bring the whole delicious entrée to the table on the cutting board—no need to transfer to another platter. Gather your guests and enjoy the thrill of fresh summer dining done the easy way!
