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!
