Put a Filter on It: Dining al Fresco

July 12, 2013

It's no secret -- we love a good 'gram. Here, we'll be posting our favorite Instagram from the food world, on a different theme each week. This week we're dining al fresco. 

Our favorite 'gram this week comes from Mimi Thorrison whose blog Manger makes us wish we could call the French countryside, with its sweeping meadows and crusty baguettes, home. But for now, we're living vicarioulsy through Mimi while eating on decks and fire escapes. It might not be the courtyard of a château, but at least we can pretend.

So open your door, enjoy your main course with a side of warm summer air, and snap of picture of the glorious scene. 

We want your 'grams! Follow us, then Instagram your outdoor summer meal -- barbecue, picnic, cook-out, what have you -- with the hashtag #F52grams. We'll re-gram our favorites.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

I've been addicted to Mimi's blog all weekend after a dinner party which coincidenced with the theme of the Bon Appetit Dinner Party piece from Amanda Hesser herself! :)
