Ali Ray brings her bright and breezy style to this cook book for people who love the outdoors. She has created more than 70 recipes for great meals on the move; from simple ideas that you can sling in your rucksack to a picnic plan for a big family gathering. The recipes will inspire you but are easily achievable in your own kitchen. Ali has also selected some very special places for your al fresco feast. Each location is designed to match the type of picnic you’re having, such as quiet forests and secret coves as well as big forest spaces with barbecues for party picnics. The chapters are divided into different types of picnics, for example Cool Boxes is all about gatherings and big groups, whereas Hampers is for high days and holidays. There’s also chapters on Rucksacks, Hampers and Barbecues, and lots more.
