Lunch in the garden with friends, what could be better? The season of al fresco dining has begun! Summer gatherings can be made simplistic and elegant by having just a few key elements and food combinations on your shopping list. You can host a lunch without having to spend all day cooking and still have guests leaving with full tummies and smiles on their faces.
When shopping for a garden lunch here are a few combinations we love:
Rock melon, soft goats cheese and prosciutto
Blue cheese and dates
Pineapple, molasses and lime zest
NB: A plentiful supply of fresh bread and quality olive oil, fresh greens and a bunch of mint are always helpful too!
