Summer is here and, with it, countless little pleasures to celebrate (sun, holidays, the good life!)
So if you’re looking for buffet, snack, on-the-go or al fresco ideas, or you’re dreaming of a feast that will cheer up days spent on the road as well as riverside walks, you’ve come to the right place!
And yes, at Le Parfait we have great ideas to prepare takeaway canned food and other delights to slip into your picnic basket. Here are just a few:
LUNCH ON THE GRASS
While Monet and Manet made those delightful moments that are picnics on the grass famous ... they did not focus on the important things. To make these al fresco meals a success, you need great recipes. Here are some examples for your next compositions: Pickled gherkins, pâté, pork roast and mackerel rillettes.
You don't have to be a fine diver to be a fine diner, and you don't have to be packed like sardines in seaside restaurants to feast on iodine and sea spray. A few jars, a little visit to the fishmonger and you’re laughing. You can eat Caldeirada and bouillinade fish stews or even fish simmered in coconut milk as you admire the sun setting into the ocean.
LIKE VAN GOGH
How about taking your inspiration from Van Gogh and being lulled by the sound of the cicadas together with the wind blowing through the olive trees? Yes, but with: olive tapenade, gazpacho,and southern-flavoured chicken thighs!
SWEET LITTLE THINGS
And to close this section, let's talk about sugar! In sweets, desserts, playing the lead in party pieces and other summer festivities... A birthday to celebrate? An afternoon stroll? A dessert in the garden? Cakes are always a safe bet! Prepare beforehand a red berry cake, a hazelnut chocolate cake or a chocolate marble cake and revel in their flavours, young and old alike, in the great outdoors!
