This summer — unofficially kicking off this weekend with Memorial Day! — take your picnics up a notch by packing something more substantial than fruit and cheese.
Sure, prepared dishes are often a pain because you have to schlep around cutlery and plates. But chef and food stylist Lisa Lemke has the answer. In her gorgeous new cookbook, “The Summer Table,” you’ll find mouthwatering, warm-weather appropriate recipes for just about any type of al fresco gathering you plan.
And if you haven’t planned anything, the seriously stunning pictures in her book will inspire you to hit the farmer’s market and fire up the grill.
