I have to admit that it is convenient to buy ready-made food these

prepare food ourselves. As a rule, the home-made version is also healthier, tastier and cheaper.
Al fresco meals have to get to wherever you're going! And you want them to arrive intact and looking scrumptious. All the recipes in this site help you do just that.
Whether you intend to
one simple home-made dish to complement your supermarket buys,
up a platter of easily prepared edibles, without much actual cooking,
Or cook a whole home-made spread from scratch . . . .

you will love the results.
What, where, with whom?
Of course the word "picnic" can mean so many different things, with so many picnic ideas to ponder and decide upon.
'FOOD, FUN and FRIENDS' is the best description. Yet it can also involve you in a multitude of different choices:
Lightweight backpack, over-flowing hamper, or a mix of coolers, bags and baskets?
meadow with the scent of wild flowers? Windy sea-shore? Manicured
lawn? Leafy haven in the middle of town? Rocky hillside? The list is
Exhilarating cross-country ramble with friends? Children splashing and building sandcastles on the beach? Energetic games or a treasure hunt? Or a quiet snooze on a blanket shared with a loved one?
It is a delightful way to spend time, whatever you choose. Share tasty food and good company in the great outdoors.
Whatever the occasion, eating outdoors makes the food itself that much more memorable.
It can be impromptu, a means of replenishing energy outdoors. Or
you can plan the affair in detail and choose the perfect location.
can be a lavish fresh air feast, or a simple snack. The style can be
strictly grown-up, a children's party or a fun family outing.
Outdoor fare can be the most relaxed and
enjoyable of meals. Eaten on a blanket at the beach or on a bench in
the park, the food becomes fun because you are 'eating out'.
Each picnic becomes a special event, to look back on with delight.
