Yes, iPhones on countertops and moleskins snuggly tucked in back pockets, we'll occasionally whip up a meal. Or martini. Some of us even bring in the fruits of our labours to have them devoured by the first 10 Rethinketeers to pass the picnic tables.
So with a thought to posterity, we're sharing our favourite recipes.

"Light, fluffy and delicious. For an adventurous breakfast, add feta to the pineapple."
Rethinker: Lisa Nakamura
1. To make the pancakes, sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the egg yolks and 1 Tbsp of sugar. Whisk together and slowly add the milk, whisking as you go.
2. Beat the whites in another bowl with an electric mixer until they just hold soft peaks. Add the remaining sugar and beat until the mixture holds stiff peaks. Gently fold the whites into the batter mixture.
3. Melt a little butter in an extra frying pan and ladle in batter, cooking one large pancake at a time. Allow approximately 2 minutes of cooking on the first side and 1 minute on the second, making sure they’re cooked through and golden brown on each side. Remove to the serving plates.
4. Serve with carmelized pineapples or a fruit compote and dust with icing sugar.
