Celebrate the joy of summer eating and entertaining. Featuring over 150 vibrant recipes and evocative images of sun-kissed Mediterranean scenes, this book provides all the inspiration you need to create memorable summer occasions. Whether you are having an impromptu picnic on the beach, an al fresco lunch on a sun-dappled verandah, or a romantic dinner under a canopy of stars, you will find just the recipe you need here. The book features the very best dishes that Spain, Italy, France and Greece have to offer. Chapters include Grazing Plates-a selection of antipasti, meze, and tapas-perfect for a lazy lunch or dinner on a warm evening. When it''s hot outside, what we naturally crave is something refreshing. In Salads & Summer Soups, you''ll find Zucchini, Feta and Mint Salad, Insalata Caprese, chilled Gazpacho and Bouillabaisse. Food from the Grill shows you how to get the best from cooking outdoors over charcoal. Try Olive-infused Chicken with Charred Lemons or Sicilian-spiced Seabass with Grilled Tomatoes and Baby Fennel. Food to Go features great ideas for easily transportable picnics, from Spinach Pies, to

Asparagus and Blue Cheese Tartlets. Al Fresco Feasts has simple yet stunning ideas for more substantial fare for feeding a crowd, from simple pastas, such as Penne with Melted Ricotta and Herby Parmesan Sauce to Oven-roasted Bell Peppers with Basil. Finally, a chapter of fresh desserts includes: Watermelon Sorbet; Bitter Chocolate and Hazelnut Gelato; and Caramelized Figs with Vanilla Mascarpone Cream.
