Good Day for a Picnic
Simple Food That Travels Well

by Jeremy Jackson

Good Day for a Picnic  

Bored with traditional picnic fare? Coleslaw? Potato salad? Soggy sandwiches? In Good Day for a Picnic, Jeremy Jackson offers up a collection of new recipe ideas for the park and the patio, the backyard and the beach, and beyond. This is not a book of "classics"—after all, who needs another fried-chicken recipe? It's a fresh, flavorful (and funny) look at picnics. The 120 recipes include everything from drinks and starters to sandwiches, entrées, and desserts. There's Ginger Iced Tea and Fig Pâté, Lamb Pita Meze and Noodles with Walnut and Blue Cheese Pesto, Sour Cherry Mini-Crumbles and Strawberry Cupcakes. The dishes are simple, wholesome, and quick to prepare, with lots of make-aheads and tips on food transport. Good Day for a Picnic, Jeremy Jackson gives dining alfresco the attention it deserves. So whether you've found a sunny spot of grass or a cozy patch of carpet, it's time to spread out the food and dig in!
