I have so many great memories of my husband and I catching up over impromptu lunch dates at cafes. More often than not, if the weather is nice, we are outside, taking in the sunshine and fresh air. Gourmet food, good conversation, beautiful surroundings; the whole combination is intoxicating. How can you recreate it in your own home? Prepare this fall cafe menu and light a few candles, or take it on the road with a picnic. Either way, the goal is to create memories every bit as good as the food.
