Antonio Loves… Al Fresco Dining

Italians are not like the Australians, living all their time outdoors, although the weather in some parts of Italy would be very conducive to that. However, in the summer, the Italians like to be under a pergola in the shade, enjoying a convivial gathering of the entire family, with plenty of delicious and simple dishes to feast on. They take enjoyment in every taste and savour the whole afternoon. In most cases, they drink chilled red wine with water added.

Over the next couple of months I will be sharing some of my favourite suggestions for al fresco dining. Each week you will be able to try new recipes of mine. Once you have picked your favourite, please send me a photo of the dish and the best one will be chosen to represent the image of that recipe on my website.

In my August newsletter I will be offering you the chance to win a picnic hamper filled with a selection of my favourite ingredient, so make sure you sign up to receive it, if you haven’t already, here.
