All you need to know to plan the perfect
picnic, including over 80 seasonal recipes and menu ideas.
Packing up a picnic basket, throwing a blanket
in the car trunk, and savoring an outdoor feast is a time-honored
tradition that never fails to excite and delight. For adults
the word picnic evokes warm childhood memories and the enjoyment
of simple pleasures, and for children its suggestion of fun and
treats brightens up the dullest of days.
In this beautifully illustrated guide,
passionate picnicker Alan Eastep celebrates, and offers
inspiration for, this great American tradition.
We provide seasonal recipes for all manner of
drinks and picnic fare - from quick and easy sandwiches and soups,
to more elaborate pies and cakes - whatever the time of year,
whatever the weather and however much time you have to prepare.
We also offers tips on how best to transport certain foods, what
equipment you’ll need when you arrive, and a comprehensive guide
to 51 top United States picnic sites, including a map of the site,
how to find the perfect picnic spot.
