Last week, I went on a picnic — a “summer picnic” to be specific — and it rained. Weather aside, the food was great, but I was certain that our calling it a summer picnic caused the weather to get testy.

So, it hasn’t been all sunshine these past few days, but lucky for us, we live in a place where food can be enjoyed anywhere.

For starters, novices and experienced cooks alike can go to the bookstore, where they’ll find Alice Currah’s new cookbook, “Savory Sweet Life.” Currah started out as a food blogger who became known for her step-by-step photographs, turning many timid cooks to domestic gods and goddesses. Like her blog, Currah’s cookbook has the how-to photos we know and love, but also more. The beautifully photographed cookbook gives us an intimate look behind her life as a mother and wife, celebrating Father’s Day with her family, and dare I say it, summer fun in the sun, as one chapter is called.
