Editorial Reviews

It shouldn't be surprising that Mary Engelbreit's idea of dining out is to prepare a cozy meal outdoors. This cookbook, chock-full of recipes, features everything from burgers to cuisine from Thailand, Mexico, and Morocco. Nicely illustrated and excellent desserts, too!
Children's Literature - Gwynne Spencer
Dining out in this visually delectable cookbook means warm weather fare for your pleasure while dining outdoors. Between the highly colored endpapers that are textured to look and feel like old fashioned oilcloth on well-worn picnic tables, the reader will be boggled by 111 recipes (or more depending on how you count the variations) with decorative borders and full-color photos on facing pages. Recipes are supplemented by suggestions for themed parties like cocktails alfresco, a company picnic, a potting-shed buffet or a Fourth of July dessert party, all distinguished from recipe pages by full borders. There is a decided emphasis on fresh and local ingredients and eye-pleasing presentations for a wide variety of picnic favorites like deviled eggs, chicken wings, corn on the cob and potato salad. But wait! There's more! Quesadillas, Portobello burgers, grilled scallops jostle for your gustatory attention along with grilled pineapple, upside-down cake, and scrumptious salads to fill the table. If you "ate out" every night of summer with this cookbook, you'd probably die of sheer joy from the variety. You would be praying for rain so you could eat leftovers, I bet. As always, with Engelbreit's books, the first feast is for the eyes while you romp through the pages of the book, choosing a recipe. As with all her cookbooks, this one is 10"x10" and includes an index. Reviewer: Gwynne Spencer
