Al Fresco: Inspired Ideas for Outdoor Living

Al Fresco: Inspired Ideas for Outdoor Living by Julie Pointer Adams is more than a cookbook: it’s also a manifesto for enjoying the outdoors whenever possible. With breezy, vegetable-forward recipes and dreamy photographs of beach picnics and backyard dinners under twinkling lights, the book is the perfect inspiration for summer entertaining. Adams also includes décor tips for bringing a bit of the outside indoors, and playful prompts like, “Things to Ponder on a Sunny Day.” Her recipes range from easy, throw-together lunches, like California tuna salad and rosemary, mushroom, and potato frittata, to meals that are party-worthy, like Greek stuffed vegetables and summer lemon cream tart.
