The minute it's warm enough, everyone wants to get outdoors. Fresh air sharpens the appetite – and food always tastes better outside. Lindy Wildsmith has delicious recipes for every outdoor occasion.
For Elegant Al Fresco, try starters like Salmon and Mascarpone Crumble, or main courses such as Spiced Chicken with Pistachios and Caramelized Fruit, followed by Nectarines in Sambuca and Lime Juice. Family Spreads features simple dishes for hungry hordes; for brunch or lunch try three ways with Crostini, and more with Bruschetta; or refreshing salads like Herbed Black Bean and Avocado Salad. Hot dishes and Puddings are also included.
The Barbecue is key to outdoor entertaining. Try Japanese Teriyaki-style Spareribs or Sicilian Lemon and Garlic Lamb Chops, plus relishes, salads and delicious ideas for vegetables. For Picnics, instead of making sandwiches, why not fill a warm loaf for sharing later? For a cold feast, take along dips and spreads such as Aubergine and Tahini or Cream Cheese, Walnut and Celery; salads include Lentil and Fresh Herb Salad. Sweet treats will round off the meal, and plenty of Drinks are included, too.
