Summer is a sense-sational season! It's tantalizing in every way: the feeling of fresh, warm air on your skin; the sounds of children at play; the sight of your garden in bloom; the smell of the barbecue; and the taste of icy treats.
One of the best things about the summer is dining al fresco, enjoying your favourite seasonal fare. With fresh, flavourful ingredients in abundance, seasonal cooking is usually pretty simple, but innovative new tools can make it even more so! They won't cramp your creativity, but they will speed things up so you can cut down on time spent inside and make the most of the outdoors!
