Among all the various wonderful food holidays, we’ve just discovered that it’s National Picnic month! No one can deny the joys of rallying with friends and family to put together some special dishes and dine in the great outdoors.
There are plenty of places in Philadelphia to set up for a lovely outdoor dining experience. Head over to Fairmount park where there’s no lack of open space or roll out a blanket in Washington square park where you can still get the hustle and bustle of the city. If you’re even feeling up for it, why not head over for morning yoga on the Race Street pier and then settle in for a nice homemade breakfast overlooking the water afterward?
If you’re trying to properly celebrate the occasion, you may be in need of a good cookbook for picnic-inspired recipes. For some delicious recipes, look no further than COOK! We’ve got a variety of amazing cookbooks to kick your picnic game up a notch. Peruse our American cookbook selection for all American side dishes or find a collection of thirst-quenching cocktails among our bar selection. To satisfy your sweet-tooth, stop in to browse our selection of pastry cookbooks. Maybe you’ll find that perfect summer pie recipe!
No matter what you choose to bring to your picnic, we hope you’re able to soak up some sun and enjoy good company this summer.
