|From the author of Wabi-Sabi Welcome, Al Fresco is a celebration of down-to-earth, outdoor entertaining, through casual gatherings and attainable well-being.
Al Fresco celebrates unfussy, unconventional, easygoing living, showcasing how close-to-nature entertaining and gathering can take shape anywhere outdoors—by the beach, in the mountains, in the city, in the suburbs, in the desert. With a blend of 25 interviews with individuals, couples, and families across a variety of demographics and backgrounds; beautiful photos; visual and reflective essays; poetic ruminations; and recipes, this book is a breath of fresh air for anyone looking to bridge indoor life with the outdoors, and seeking inspirational ideas for how to achieve this lifestyle. Organized by location of gathering—By the Water, At Home, Open Spaces, Intimate Spaces, Under the Sun, and more—each chapter will include practical and easy takeaways, like “Ways to Reset in the Sun”; “Things to Do Outside with a Friend”; “Things to Ponder on a Sunny Day”; and “Ideal Snacks for Easy Get-Togethers.”
