The thermometer is on the rise but hosts stay as cool as can be when entertaining friends and family. The secret? Planning ahead to deliver easy ambiance, crowd-pleasing food and plenty of fun. Start with versatile foods, such as fresh California grapes, that can both stand alone and serve as recipe-enhancing ingredients to help keep summertime hosting stress-free.
The bright, sunny days of summer are your favorite time of year and when the season arrives, you spend much of your time outdoors. Your yard becomes your living room and you move your cooking to the grill.
