Eating every possible meal in the garden or patio is one of the most blissful things you can do during the summer months. We need these little moments now that we are spending more time at home. The simple act of sipping a cup of tea on the doorstep while listening to the birds and feeling a warm breeze on your face can transform the daily humdrum activity into something special. Pile a tray with toast and coffee and head outdoors for breakfast and suddenly it feels like you’re on holiday. And a glass of rosé and some nuts dished up on the patio or a balcony becomes a celebration.
Meals taken outdoors and in the garden are simultaneously liberating and fun. Entertaining family and friends takes on a more chilled dimension when you sit beneath a tree, children and animals run around your feet and the light gradually dims. The only rules about eating alfresco is that there are no rules: the more relaxed and informal the better.
“Picnics always taste so much nicer than meals we have indoors”
Five Go Off in a Caravan by Enid Blyton
