The Outdoor Table is a colorful guidebook to creating delicious and portable dishes that can be prepared ahead of time and easily packed-up in a picnic basket or cooler for outdoor dining.

Along with the vibrant recipes, The Outdoor Table highlights popular seasonal outdoor events and venues across the South like Picnic In the Park in Savannah, Ga., the Delta Classic in Atlanta’s Chastain Park, and Bluebird on the Mountain at Vanderbilt’s Dyer Observatory in Nashville, Tenn., giving readers plenty of inspiration for their outdoor dining adventures.

Some featured recipes include:

  • Basil Strawberry Lemonade
  • Crab Salad Avocado Boats
  • Candied Corn and Roasted Okra Salad
  • Brown Sugar Bacon Club Sandwiches
  • Fourth of July Mason Jar Trifles

“My hope is that as you flip through the pages of this book, you will be excited by these recipes enough to host a ‘just because’ barbeque or pack up a picnic and make some priceless memories with the ones you love.” April writes. “May this book be the inspiration behind many sweet days filled with warm sunshine, heavenly food, and lots of laughter.” -April McKinney
