Recipes for al fresco dining

The sun is shining. The weather is glorious. Make the most of the warm weather with our collection of delicious al fresco recipes.

We’ve dug through our archives and pulled together recipes perfectly suited for al fresco 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. Swiftly followed by a 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’s no shortage of contenders in our collection of recipes for alfresco dining.

So, go on then, celebrate the sunshine and treat yourself to an al fresco feast in your back garden (or whatever outdoor space you have). There is no better way to enjoy food.
