When I worked in advertising, I once had a client who had a barbecue every Christmas Eve come rain, shine or snow. He explained in clipped dulcet tones that one shouldn’t let the weather get in the way of eating. Which is a fine mantra for life. Though he had served in the Gulf so he could be described as more fearless than your average barbecuing Joe.

Eating outside is a pleasure in my eyes. Whether standing, teeth chattering and zipped up in a ski jacket at the park armed with a flask of tea and a slice of cake or in a strappy vest, sunglasses and with the billowing smoke of a just lit barbecue in the back garden, I just love eating outside. Everything tastes better with a little vitamin D soaking through the clouds and into your skin.

Of course anything can be eaten outside, but these are things I like to take on picnics, to barbecues or simply eat in the garden when the sun is shining. Most of them are deliberately summery in theme; I like to think they might entice the sun out, but that may well be wishful thinking.
