The Outdoor Table: The Ultimate Cookbook For Your Next Backyard BBQ, Front-Porch Meal, Tailgate, Or Picnic

April McKinney celebrates the tradition of packing up your best food and enjoying a meal outdoors. When most people say they are going out to eat, they usually mean out to a restaurant. But it could mean a front porch brunch with your closest friends; a nighttime concert in the park; a tailgate party at the stadium; a moonlit dinner at the drive-in movie theater; or a picnic at a vineyard. Whether at a planned event or just an impromptu cookout in the backyard with your friends and neighbors, The Outdoor Table is your guide to creating portable dishes that you can prepare ahead of time and serve cold or at room temperature when you get to your destination that your family and friends will love. It’s time to pack a picnic and start making memories.

I pre-ordered this cookbook. When it came, I sat down to flip through it. I was impressed with the range of recipes. I have made a couple of the appetizers that were a big hit; the Roasted Garlic Black-Eyed Pea Hummus and the Fancy Figs. They were both excellent. I have the pork chops for the Mustard-Herb Grilled Pork Chops in the marinade as I type this review. When I get a new cookbook, if there are two or three "keeper recipes" in it, I feel like I got my money's worth. This cookbook has the potential to have MANY more keepers than that.

I just picked up my copy of this beautiful book at a local bookstore today (sorry , I must support our locally owned bookstore even though I probably paid a little more). This book is even better than its description. The layout is crisp, clean, nicely organized (separate sections for drinks, appetizers, meals, etc.). April's recipes are very easy to follow and contain ingredients that are readily available. The photography throughout is as beautiful as the cover would lead you to believe. There is one recipe per page and each recipe is introduced with a few sentences of why it's a favorite of April's and why it may be your next favorite too, as well as what ingredient distinguishes the drink or food item from ones like it. I also was pleasantly surprised and loved the book's bonus feature, which was to intersperse titled, one-page descriptions of some of the most beautiful parks and best tailgate venues in America. If you have been invited to an outdoor feast, such as a neighbor's annual pig roast or neighborhood weekend get-together, and you are thinking of bringing something special, you should waste no time and order this book right away. This is one that you will not want to shelve away but will feel like displaying in or near your kitchen for guests to enjoy. I love this book!

I love when I get a great book at a bargain. That is this book. Grabbed off Bookbub, this book was loaded down recipes that I know I will make again and again. From drinks to desserts, all were easy to make and appealing on numerous levels. There was only a small handful of recipes that I felt I would pass on. Worth every little penny I spent!

Great cookbook! I downloaded it yesterday, have already digitally bookmarked so many pages! These recipes are outdoor-friendly, but really appropriate for any setting. Some are known recipes with a twist, but others are new. They all seem to be very approachable with "normal" ingredients. Everyday, normal-people food that sounds delicious!! 😊

Purchased 2 for Christmas Gifts...Best cookbook I've seen in a long time!! Beautiful presentation and design makes you want to read it from cover to cover. Not only is it perfect for outdoor entertaining, it's a great recipe resource for any year-round event or get-together!

I love it! What a fantastic collection of recipes. Really have enjoyed the ones I've least 20 at this point. Love that the ingredients are easy to find, very natural, and tasty. So happy with this purchase!

I usually don't like digital cookbooks because they are difficult to navigate. I just purchased this book and absolutely love it. I can't wait to try the recipes. The book is very easy to navigate. Thank you!!!!

Got it out of my library first and liked it so much I ordered it from you. Have already cooked a meal = Salmon with a maple syrup sauce - delicious!
