Preparing a Picnic in Jars on The Today Show!

Summer is a wonderful time for a picnic and this week, on my regular appearance on The Today Show, I demonstrated an unusual way of carrying and serving food at a picnic – in jars.  I think that it’s the nicest way to pack up a picnic.  I originally got this idea from a place in Sag Harbor, out on Long Island, called Cavaniola’s Gourmet Cheese Shop, a wonderful little prepared food take-out shop.  While shopping there, I saw a salad packed in a jar and I wanted to do that myself.  So, we elaborated on that idea and came up with this picnic menu, consisting of Summer Fruit Sangria, Seven-Layer Bean Dip, Niçoise Terrine, and Espresso Mousse.
