Sumptuous shindig

There’s no better way to celebrate flip-flop season than to gather up some friends and family in your backyard and feed them well. After all, food just tastes better when enjoyed in the great outdoors. But a common struggle for party hosts is how to serve sophisticated dishes that don’t require spending more time slaving over the stove or grill than mingling with guests in the sunshine. The key is to turn to recipes that are an irresistible matchup of great flavours and ease of party-day preparation. You can take your outdoor get-together up a gastronomic notch and stress less with these largely make-ahead sumptuous dishes that are a step up from dips and hamburgers. And you’ll get bonus points because your spread is also full of nutritional powerhouses. Get ready for the perfect Insta post.
