One of the best parts of summer is all the fresh produce that is available at our local farmer’s markets. There are so many seasonal vegetables and fruits available that elevate any recipe! This is your chance to host a “farm to table” dinner party with all of your friends. Not only is this a great way to spend time with friends but also a chance to challenge your own cooking skills to create seasonal dishes to be enjoyed by all your guests!
For starters, you’ll need to plan your menu. The fun part about this type of menu planning if you aren’t a farmer’s market regular you'll get introduced to all of the fresh local produce and maybe even some new ones. We recommend designing your meal around a protein that you purchase ahead of time and then browse everything available to you at your local market! We have put together a list of summer dishes that will be sure to impress and you can take inspiration from.
