About This Book

Delight in these perfect picnic recipes for a stylish outdoor feast.
 
Le Picnic reimagines outdoor lunching as a chic activity that’s worth putting a little more effort into. Rather than taking a boring sandwich and a flask of coffee to your next picnic, why not a bacon-and-leek quiche, a beautiful potato-and-pork sausage galette or cherry-tomato tartlets? Classic French recipes can be perfectly transportable, are not overly complex, and don’t require particularly hard-to-find ingredients or an advanced skill set. The recipes in the book are designed for the home cook.
 
Le Picnic's fifty perfectly transportable recipes include drinks, nibbles, more substantial fare, zesty salads, and delicate sweet treats. Start the picnic with a glass of Champagne with fresh white peach syrup, nibble on caramelized-onion tartlets, a slice of Camembert tart, and a witloof salad. And finish with a selection of delectable treats, including fresh raspberry tartlets and white chocolate macarons. Be transported to Paris on your next outdoor feast!
