I can't think of a better way to celebrate our nation's Independence Day than with good food and great friends. John Derian's celebration at his Cape Cod home in Bon Appetit is my kind of get together - low key, casual and relaxed. Oh, and it helps when the party's right on the beach! Below are some shots of Derian's simple pad in Provincetown - I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!
