Prepping the picnic

Week before last I went to see KiC profile Jennifer Rudick’s documentary, Diner en Blanc. The film, which chronicles the planning of the yearly flash mob dinner staged in Paris, completely inspired me. Most impressive is the amount of thought that goes into each participant’s menu. Not only are the attendees required to wear white, everyone must provide their own food, table, chairs, cutlery, glassware, plates, and most importanly, wine. The primary focus of the film is the prep for this famous picnic.

In the spirit of Diner en Blanc, we are going to celebrate today with an amped up sunset picnic. No pb&j’s wrapped in waxed paper, but rather, lobster salad, a good loaf of bread, and of course, a nice bottle of wine.
