There are hours of sunshine and school’s out; it must be summer! We yearn to celebrate this vitality of this season with parties and gatherings, but often need a bit of help. There’s a lot of perceived pressure on hosting the right kind of party (what do I serve?) and on being the right kind of guest (what do I bring?). The point of gathering is to be with one another, period. Let Jessica’s tried-and-true recipes from Repertoire give you a helpful nudge toward frequent and easy summer socials featuring the best of the season’s produce and fish.
