Reviews

"Smart new ideas include salads on a stick and a dozen kinds of deviled eggs."

--Entertainment Weekly

"Terrific. . . . Picnic basket essentials to make everything easy."
--Portland Oregonian

"The Picnic will turn you into a sort of MacGyver of picnics."
--Eater Portland

"Ridiculously pretty . . . this book is your guide to getting food from your kitchen to the great outdoors."
--Epicurious

"A lovely, hand-illustrated cookbook which covers the ABCs of picnicking. It's full of useful tips."
--Design*Sponge

"The only picnic guide you'll ever need."
--Food Network DISH

"Charming. . . . Perusing these colorfully illustrated pages, readers will learn how to select an appropriate site, cope with inclement weather, transport unwieldy or temperature-sensitive foods, and assemble a 'glorious' charcuterie board. The authors' classy recipes for appetizers, salads, drinks, and more (e.g. kale panzanella with burnt lemon Caesar dressing, smoky tea-brined fried chicken, vanilla bean shortcakes with strawberries in basil syrup) all include thoughtful instructions for storage and serving. A fresh look at outdoor entertaining that's just in time for spring and summer. Highly recommended."
