The light, seasonal food from Bread & Water—a Venice Beach catering company run by sisters Meave and Faye McAuliffe—inspired this feast.
- Cucumber Mint Spritzer. “This is the kind of cool drink you want when you’re out in the sun,” says Meave. Make the cucumber mixture ahead of time and top it off with ice and club soda (or even Champagne).
- Zaatar Yogurt Dip and Vegetables. We translated the flavors of one of Bread & Water’s popular salads into a no-utensils-required dish. A Middle Eastern spice blend, “zaatar has a slight citrus note that goes well with vegetables,” says Meave.
- Charmoula Grilled Chicken Sandwiches. The chicken gets a flavor boost from charmoula, a versatile marinade. “I make extra to use as a dip,” says Meave.
