Improve your Picnic Game with Gina Hyams' New Book
For a new way to enjoy Tanglewood
with your family and friends all summer long, look no further than
the Glass Houses.
Now stocked for the summer is Berkshire-based writer and editor Gina Hyams' latest book, The Tanglewood Picnic: Music and Outdoor Feasts in the Berkshires.
According to Hyams, the full-color gift book is "both a charming historic document and inspiration for over-the-top picnic style." It includes more than 100 photos of Tanglewood picnickers from the 1940s through today (from the BSO Archives and family scrapbooks), a dozen classic picnic recipes, the ultimate Tanglewood picnic checklist, and more. Her previous work has focused on food, travel, and the arts - and with this book, she has combined all three passions.
As cookbook author Alana Chernila writes in the book's introduction, "The Tanglewood lawn is truly inclusive. It's open to everyone who wants to participate, and the wonders of each blanket contribute to the experience of those blankets all around it . . . It's like a party where guests can arrive in pajamas or ball gowns, and all are celebrated for coming just in the manner that suits them."
The Tanglewood Picnic provides readers a look back and should also prove inspiring for budding chefs and concertgoers. And remember - Friends enjoy a 10% discount at the Glass Houses, so pick up your copy today!
