Michael Devine shares the joys of outdoor dining in his exquisite garden, inspired by the French Jardin de Cure. Located in picturesque Kinderhook, New York, this small backyard garden has raised sprightly vegetable and herb beds and luscious fruit trees, which are the source for many of the fresh ingredients for his mouth-watering menus. An array of sensuous blooms for the table is ready for the picking. Featured are twelve get-togethers throughout the seasons - from breakfast and lunch to cocktails and dinner. Included are easy-to-prepare recipes, as well as lots of ideas for creating festive tablescapes and decor that befit each occasion, from an iridescent butterfly-themed summer luncheon to a Christmas Eve feast in his cosy garden folly lit with candelabras. Each garden event is chic and infused with whimsical effects.
