Picnics are fun and casual, and somehow the food just tastes better in a beautiful outdoor setting. In Picnic, DeeDee Stovel offers 28 picnic event ideas and more than 125 recipes -- packable repasts from an informal Summer Canoe Picnic (featuring iced cucumber soup and red potato salad with fresh peas) to an elegant Champagne Tea Picnic (starring petite lobster rolls and Tante Lulu's apple cake). There are picnics for every season, including a Tailgate Picnic, a Fall Foliage Picnic, and an Apres-Ski Picnic. Wine and beer selections accompany each menu.
