Summer entertaining is all about cool and casual dishes that are easy to transport and keep well in the heat. Here are some of our best suggestions from Cookidoo and the Recipe Community!
Bring a salad
These hearty salads travel well, will feed a crowd and can happily be prepared in advance (no wilting lettuce allowed).

Bring a dessert
If you’ve been delegated to bring dessert along to your next get-together, choose from one of our travel-friendly dishes that don’t require refrigerating (your friends’ fridge will thank you).

Bring some nibbles
Now no pressure but being asked to bring some nibbles is a serious honour. After all, yours is the first dish everyone will devour while they’re standing around chatting, sipping and let’s face it, feeling a little bit peckish. Put together a platter that will wow by mixing and matching some (or all) of the following homemade goodies.
Herbed Lavosh (this takes one takes some time, but is worth the effort in $$ and flavour)

Bring something for the BBQ
Looking for something a little bit different from sausages and steaks to throw on the barbie? Most of these recipes can be just as easily baked in the oven as well as thrown on the grill if space is an issue.
