A spontaneous and casual invitation to have dinner at someone’s home in the summer months.
The number of guests is kept small to add to the intimacy and easiness of the evening. Preparation is necessary but it is kept simple and effortless. Efficient recipes can be found in this round up of books. Priority is in the conversations though, so picking up dessert from a local pâtisserie is not a faux pas.
Make the most of the warmer weather and eat en plein air, using candles to set the mood once dusk approaches.
