How to Entertain Outdoors Like a Pro

What makes a summer lunch or dinner party outdoors special? You do. Here is a list of things to think about for your next garden event:

1. Get your yard clean and in order. Make sure the grass is mowed, raked and free of debris, tools and toys

2. Donít overlook spaces inside the house where guests may be, particularly the entryway, kitchen and bathrooms.

3. Decorate with cuttings from your yard. Arrange fresh flowers and greenery to add a pop of color and a natural fragrance.

4. Have plenty of seating for your guests. If you're short on chairs, spread blankets on the grass.

5. Choose music that will be entertaining and pleasant, not too loud or overwhelming.

6. Think of your guests when choosing the menu. When extending invitations, you may want to ask whether anyone has food allergies or dietary preferences.

7. Be open to the idea of a potluck party. This will lighten your load, and it's a fun way to try new dishes.

8. Ask a couple of guests whether they would arrive early to help with pre-party preparation. Make it fun by starting the music early and sampling some food.

9. Prepare as many foods in advance as possible. On the day of the party, you'll be glad you got a head start, and flavors will be enhanced.

10. Have at least two large trash cans emptied and placed in convenient locations.

Congratulations to David Feder, one of our ManChef stars for completing The Ride for Cancer Research from Toronto to Niagara Falls.

Manchef sends out a great big thank you to Staples, the business supply store on Summerhill. Matt and other knowledgeable and helpful staff have provided instrumental technical support.

Thank you Peter for the wonderful "cake" for David. It was away beyond the category of cake, more like a gourmet experience!
