There is nothing better than basking in the summer sun or relaxing on a long summer's evening with delicious food and drink, whilst being serenaded by the Bard. Food, drink and Shakespeare go happily hand in hand, and there is no shortage of references to mankind's favourite pastimes in his plays. A Midsummer Night's Dream conjures up images of secluded lover's picnics in forested glades, of dancing and merriment throughout balmy nights, and feasts of sweet and savoury delicacies fit for a (fairy) King. So, in summertime, and with Shakespeare's blessing, 'How shall we beguile/The lazy time if not with some delight?'
