Recipes for alfresco dining

The sun is shining. The weather is glorious. You can now meet as two households. What better way to celebrate the coming of the new season than with an enjoyable dinner in your back garden (or whatever outdoor space you have).

We’ve dug through our archives and pulled together recipes ideas that are suitable for alfresco dining. 54, or so, recipes that are fit for a king (or queen) and sure to please the masses as well.

A roasted beetroot and lentil salad or a gloriously shareable tuna dip with broccoli, potatoes and eggs, is a lovely way to begin proceedings. Followed by a main of parmesan roast chicken or perhaps a spice braised shoulder of lamb.

Of course, you’ll need something sweet to finish off. From a gloriously summery strawberry and passion fruit pavlova to a no-bake Philadelphia cheesecake, or even Raymond Blanc’s apple tart, there no shortage of contenders in our collection of recipes for alfresco dining.
