Alfresco fun in London on Khoollect

Summer’s almost here, which means alfresco dining season is well underway. If you read ‘my pick of picnic spots’ post from earlier this week, then you’ll know there’s nothing I like more than bundling up some delicious snacks, a rug and heading out to a nearby park with a bunch of friends. Lucky for me, London has a great alfresco dining culture, and that’s what we’ve been exploring over on Khoollect this week. Here’s my Editor’s picks:

We’ve compiled five throw-together recipes, perfect to make quickly inside and take outdoors. There’s everything from watermelon and mint to sage and blackberry, lavender and honey, and more.
