This months ‘The Listing Mentions’ we chose to speak about Outdoor Dining. We hope by the time you are reading these the weather is bright and you can use some of our suggestions soon!
The other week, three friends and I headed over to the fab Thai Food Direct supermarket in Letchworth, where we bought authentic thai ingredients such as galangal, turmeric root, coriander root, lemon grass, lime leaves and copious amounts of fresh chillies.
We sat outside and made our own fresh green and red curry pastes from scratch. Much pounding, crushing and grinding later, we enjoyed a fabulous green curry in the garden.

As I write this today the sun is slowly starting to poke his head out of the clouds so it’s time to throw open the patio doors and get ready for Summer and ‘Al Fresco’ dining. This summer the garden will be our main dining area and looking its best ready for BBQs, picnics and outdoor drink parties! Although I am looking forward to making the most of the countryside and soaking up the Therfield Heath views and enjoying our outdoor bars and restaurants!
My favourite part about summer is being able to eat and drink outside. I love in the mornings being able to eat my breakfast in my garden. I can’t wait to sit in some pub gardens for some dinner and a nice cool drink. Do let us know your favourites!
