Story: Picnics and barbecues

Backyard barbecue, 2007

Backyard barbecue, 2007

A barbecue is held in a suburban backyard in January 2007. Since the 1950s the barbecue has been a feature of the New Zealand summer. Modern backyards often have specially designated barbecue spaces and gas-fired barbecues such as the one in this picture. Barbecue cooking is typically seen as a role for males.
