Take Your Dinner Outside

It’s too hot to be stuck in the kitchen.

Once the weather gets above 75°, there’s absolutely no excuse for turning on your oven (okay, okay, maybe the occasional rhubarb pie). Just haul a pile of fresh fava beans, a steak, a few cold beers, and some friends out to the back yard. You can cook to the sounds of birds and crickets and your neighbors’ soft jazz instead of the usual radiator hum and oven fan. If you’re making burgers or sliders of some kind, grill a few extra buns at the end of the meal, and turn them into ice cream sandwiches.

There are a lot of these laid-back nights of summer entertaining ahead, so we put together some of our favorite stories, tips, and recipes for cooking in the open air. We’ll have you grilling whole trout, skewering saté, and encrusting potatoes in salt in no time.
