When a cool terrace provides welcome shade from the midday sun and calls for cool salads and grilled food; when you''re feeding a group of friends or settling in for an evening''s tete a tete -- no matter what the occasion, there''s a recipe here for delicious and effortless entertaining. Just because you''re feeling summery and relaxed doesn''t mean that your taste buds have gone on vacation. The weather shouldn''t be an excuse for throwing any old thing together: it should be the reason why you take extra care so the meal can be a memorable one, so try Lunch Alfresco offerings like Grilled Squid, Chorizo and Asparagus Salad. Cooking for two lets you really push the culinary boat out, so when Two''s Company, get the pans out, light the candles and stick two fingers up to yet another TV dinner watching Iron Chef! Choose from an irresistible Pot-cooked Beef Fillet with Pea Purée and Hasselback Potatoes. Eating is a communal activity, the act of spooning peas onto your neighbour''s plate a silent confirmation of friendship. So easy sharing plates like Falafel with Tzatziki mean the More the Merrier. Finally, catch up with greedy friends and sit down to a Banana and Chocolate Cake or a plate of Honey and Oat Anzac Cookies at Teatime.
