With the restrictions on socialising at home about to be relaxed by the government as part of its roadmap for exiting lockdown, home entertaining is about to become the country’s most important social activity. To enhance the experience and enjoyment of entertaining at home this summer while taking social distancing guidelines into account, The Sunday Times Al Fresco Guide will be published this Sunday, June 7th.

The 12-page guide will offer menus and recipes from celebrity chef Catherine Fulvio focussing on the freshest Irish ingredients with her signature Irish-Italian slant while Martin Moran, wine-writer with The Sunday Times, gives advice on the perfect tipples for outdoor dining and partying. It will also feature delicious recipes from the highly acclaimed new Weber Barbecue Bible, the definitive new volume on cooking over flames. Some other offerings include:

  • Recipes for meat dishes, sauces and sides; salad dishes; a veggie or vegan dish  
  • Cocktail recipes

Niall Toner, lifestyle editor at The Sunday Times, says: Social distancing is making summer a little different this year, but the best part about good weather is the opportunity it creates for al-fresco entertaining. The aim for this guide is to share ideas with readers on how they might plan and host the perfect outdoor summer gathering, which will be centered around food, beverages, outdoor decoration and above all, safe socialising. As for the weather to go with it all, we can only hope for the best.”
