Real Living (Australia) - - EAT -

When the sun is shin­ing and the sky is sparkling blue, it would be re­miss to lunch in­doors – es­pe­cially in those first bursts of spring af­ter a long win­ter. Take ad­van­tage of the warm air and sun­shine by eat­ing out­doors.

Le Pic­nic: Chic Food For On-The-Go by Suzy Ash­ford reimag­ines out­door eat­ing as an el­e­gant, de­light­ful and de­li­cious ac­tiv­ity to en­joy with friends. All the recipes in the book are de­signed for shar­ing – from the dips and ter­rines to the larger tarts, baguettes, sal­ads and sweet treats. Of course, hav­ing more friends at your pic­nic means more of the de­li­cious recipes to make and share – so get those in­vites out!

And since we’re putting so much ef­fort into get­ting the menu just right, let’s think be­yond plas­tic cut­lery, paper plates and cheap nap­kins. Equally, if you’re bring­ing along a bot­tle of bub­bles (a vi­tal el­e­ment to any pic­nic), serv­ing it in a cof­fee mug or plas­tic tum­bler just isn’t go­ing to cut it – only a glass coupe or flute will do. Cheers – and bon ap­pétit!
