There is nothing more magical than eating alfresco! New England clambakes at a picnic table, charcuterie spreads in a vineyard, harvesting straight out of a garden, grilling anything and everything amidst a sexy sunset, summertime dining is a joie de vivre! I incorporate fresh herbs like dill, parsley, chives, and mint. I explore the simplicities of salads, and delight in tasting the rainbow. I fuse exotic flavors into spreads and dips that are sure to wow any partygoer. Summertime recipes are a celebration, an invitation, and a nod to simple pleasures and vibrant palates.
