This month all we want to do is kick back, relax and enjoy the last of our fleeting British summer. Get outside with picnic ideas from blogger Emily Leary that are so easy the kids can make them; throw an al fresco dinner party with our fresh recipes and clever cocktails, and relive some of those classic flavours from your hols with our picks from the Med.
