Picnics are fun, casual, and somehow the food just tastes better in a beautiful outdoor setting.
In Picnic, DeeDee Stovel offers 28 picnic event ideas with more than 125 recipes - packable repasts from an informal Berry Picking Picnic to an elegant Music Festival Picnic. Although Picnic includes all of the traditional fare, the recipes for the soups, entrees, salads, and desserts are all a cut above the ordinary.
And when lazy summer days turn chilly, enjoy a Sports Booster Picnic, a Fall Foliage in New England Picnic, and an Apres-Ski Picnic. Wine and beer selections accompany each menu. Plus picnic lore, packing to go, the perfect picnic basket, rainy day alternatives, and much more. It's an all-American feast!
