The idea of packing a basket and digging out a rug is so simple and yet is one of the most rewarding ways to dine and enjoy the environment.
In Picnic: Outdoor Feasts in the Australian Landscape, Sophie Zalokar has elevated the essence of this pleasurable pastime to a new dimension. She and photographer Brad Rimmer traveled around Australia and met with some of the country’s most talented food and wine people to discover their favored picnic food and places. The result is a truly unique combination of fabulous food in beautiful landscapes.
From Maggie Beer’s bucolic Olive Grove Picnic to the time-standing-still picnic while overlooking the Tanami Desert, this book offers a variety of inspirational moveable feasts that can be easily applied to your own picnicking sojourns.
