When the occasion for a picnic is a bit special -- a concert on the grass, Shakespeare under the stars, fireworks in the park -- it seems only fitting that the food match. We devised this menu, an update on picnic favorites, for just such events.
Sandwiches, salads, cookies, and iced tea are all here, only dressed up. We also give the outdoor meal an environmentally friendly spin wherever possible. We don't pack our finest china, but we do bring real dishes and find other ways to reduce trash -- one more way to celebrate the setting.
