Editorial Reviews

Review

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.

The recipes are interesting and easy with sample menus. This would be a great book to put into a gift picnic basket and then give it to a friend. I'm looking forward to trying the grilled chicken kabobs with peach salsa. The herbed green beans with mozzarella and prosciutto look great, too.

This book has an excellent collection of portable and tasty recipes. They lend themselves just as easily to a summer dinner inside if it's too hot outside! The author offers menu selections to help you choose compatible dishes. It's a wonderful book!
