A summer full of picnics is packed into a new little book from veteran author Barbara Scott-Goodman. Recipes range from good old deviled eggs with a handful of variations to add zip, to potato salad, upscale in a version that includes freshly cooked mussels and their liquid.
For picnics that are really banquets in a hamper, Scott-Goodman suggests poached salmon, roasted filet of beef with red and yellow peppers and caper vinaigrette, or a sumptuous salad of grilled garlic shrimp with white beans and arugula. Finales, like walnut studded brownies, are much less complicated. Picnics, by Barbara Scott-Goodman, with illustrations by Maxine Boll-Hughs.
