Never-ending Summer

I’ve chosen a collection of recipes that capture the outdoor spirit, food that can be cooked outside and eaten outside, whether it is at the beach
with your toes in the water, or in your own back garden under a shady tree or in a sheltered spot as the sun sets. But there’s a back-up plan: all
the food can be cooked indoors if the weather turns on you, and many of the recipes cross over the seasons.
Never-ending summer will work them all effortlessly! Full Description
