August is the time to be outside in France. The cities are largely empty and the countryside is all about summer entertaining on terraces, in gardens and in the shade of trees.
As we move around we spend time on the terraces of bistros and small restaurants, an aperitif with friends, a coffee after the market shop …. and while at home entertaining outside is one of my favorite ways to reconnect with friends or get the whole family together for a dinner.
Here are some of my favourites for entertaining outdoors , French style.
