National Picnic Day!
We are a month into Spring; get outside!!! April 23rd is a day for everyone to enjoy a meal outside: it’s National Picnic Day!
Baskets and blankets seem to make everything taste better. Whether it’s a nighttime concert at the Greek or Concord or simply brunch at your local park, eating outdoors has a certain charm. Picnics work for a romantic dinner or an all-out family (and friends) reunion.
There are a variety of ways to take part in a picnic. This meal hearkens back to mid-18th-century al fresco French dining when all you needed was a bottle of wine, a loaf of bread, some cheese and fruit and you could have a party under the sky. Sometimes the food’s secondary to your surroundings. Find the perfect combination — and have fun!
From the French for piquenique, picnic means a meal eaten outdoors.
From barbecues to simple cold plates, picnics are light informal affairs intended to be relaxing and fun for everyone to enjoy the day.
