What could represent “summer à la française” better than a long meal with friends and wine? Aperitif dînatoire is the French version of tapas: a large variety of delicious recipes served in small portions so you can enjoy lots of different food. It is best enjoyed outdoors, where the fresh air sparks the appetite. So go enjoy perfect picnics, brilliant barbecues and delicacies on the decking, now is the time for Al Fresco eating.
