Celebrate alfresco eating
Small and lusciously illustrated, Robin Vitetta-Miller's Picnics: Easy Recipes for the Best Alfresco Foods focuses on food that's fresh and served cold, mostly. Smoky Chicken Fingers made to dip in a creamy, sour cream-based honey-mustard sauce and Mini Crab Cakes with Wasabi Mayonnaise are among the starters, followed by Robin's take on wrapture (from Tangy Tuna in a spinach tortilla to Roast Beef with Asian Slaw), super salads, savory baked concoctions to toast, twist or slice, and packable sweets. Robin adds picnic theme-party ideas to spice up your summer get-togethers.
