It’s with July that Bri­tain shows its best al­fresco colours. The month kicks off with the Hen­ley Re­gatta (pic­nics at the ready), fol­lowed by Wim­ble­don (dust off the Pimm’s jugs) and fes­ti­vals that cater for any mu­si­cal taste, with many tak­ing their food of­fer­ings as se­ri­ously as their set lists.

This is­sue, we’re en­cour­ag­ing you to go out­side and ap­pre­ci­ate the good weather while we have it. We’re cel­e­brat­ing seafood with an ode to the prawn (p24), have a bunch of recipes for low-fuss al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing (p44), take a look at dishes from Croa­tia’s Dal­ma­tian coast (p50), ex­plore top chef Selin Ki­azim’s Turk­ishCypriot her­itage (p58) and give you a for­aged menu us­ing pro­duce you should be able to find close to home (p54).

For travel, we’re mak­ing the most of Europe’s cli­mate. Olivia Palam­oun­tian’s look at her fam­ily’s home­town of Stock­holm un­cov­ers some hid­den gems (p32) and we take a trip straight into the heart of Bordeaux to ex­plore a city whose restau­rants ben­e­fit from some of the best wine-pro­duc­ing con­di­tions in the world (p64). We’re also giv­ing some of Bri­tain’s lesser-known is­lands their time in the sun (p76), as well as pro­vid­ing an itin­er­ary for city breaks in Brighton, Porto and Lin­dau, on Ger­many’s Lake Con­stance (p99). Though for some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent, check out our piece on float­ing ho­tels (p88) – they’re worth dip­ping in to. Mark San­som Ed­i­tor
