Every Wednesday at noon, Food section staff members and guests answer your cooking questions. You can submit a question in advance in the box below. Just remember to return when we’re live, or read the transcript after the chat ends.

This week, we talked about what to snack on at the beach. Writer Richard Morgan visited the shoreline in Santa Monica, Calif., to find out what people there were eating: popsicles, mangoes, cheese boards, tortas — the list goes on. Check out his story here.

Some of you shared your go-to summer snacks — frozen grapes! If you’re stumped about what to pack, check out Becky Krystal’s roundup of portable snacks for outdoor fun, including these Plantain Wraps With Tangy Black Bean Spread (pictured). If you’re planning on having fun at the pool — yours or a friend’s — this list of poolside snackables may be more your speed.

Summer produce is on everyone’s mind, too.

Thanks for joining us today. Come back each Wednesday at noon (ET) to talk about food and cooking.
