Chic country girl and gourmet Tori Finch understands the joy of a carefree picnic. There’s nothing like eating outdoors to capture your sense of adventure, and add flair to the food--whether you are entertaining a relaxed crowd of friends and family or preparing a romantic feast for two. Hop on your vintage bike to work up an appetite, hit the beach for a cook-out, or host a teddy bears’ picnic for the little ones; these all feature within Tori’s 10 themed menus, each complete with recipes for portable savory and sweet dishes, as well as drinks to serve alongside. On a balmy summers eve, hang paper lanterns from trees and ser ve Asian-inspired food in the Indochine picnic, or lay luxurious rugs and evoke a sense of the middle east with a meze platter and spiced citrus couscous for the Bohemian picnic. Warm up during a fall walk in the woods with a thermos of spiced squash soup and slices of zingy Jamaican gingercake, or dream of sunnier climes with a Provencal-inspired feast of freshly roasted rotisserie-style chicken, home-made olive bread, and French strawberry tart. Whatever the occasion, A Perfect Day for a Picnic is your guide to enjoying the outdoor life.
