Eating Outdoors : The minute the weather is warm enough, everyone wants to get outdoors. All that fresh air brings on an appetite - and food always tastes better when eaten outside. For elegant Al Fresco, try appetizers such as Pasta with Crayfish and Chile, Salmon and Mascarpone Crumble, or entrees such as Spiced Chicken with Pistachios and Caramelized Fruit. Follow these with Nectarines in Sambuca and Lime Juice or Blueberry Frangipani Tart. Family Spreads features simple dishes for the hungry hordes; for brunch or lunch try three ways with Crostini or refreshing salads like Herbed Black Bean and Avocado Salad. The greatest al fresco entertaining is Grilling. The main event could include Japanese Teriyaki-style Spareribs or Foil-wrapped Trout with Vegetables. Accompaniments include Mango and Kiwi Salsa. Serve with great salads like Sicilian Fennel with Orange, Mint, and Olives, and vegetables such as Sesame Sweet Potato Packages. Ideas for Picnics include pizzas and pies straight from the oven, dips and spreads, salads, and sweet treats.
