Pack the perfect picnic

By BzBarlow 13 Jun 2017

A glimpse of sun means it's officially time to get outside and make the most of the British sunshine and what better way to do this than with a picnic!

When it comes to picnics you can't go wrong with the classic British selection, so enjoy a taste of nostalgia by packing the perfect al fresco lunch...

FOOD

Scotch Eggs

BBC Good Food
Is it really a picnic without an egg wrapped in meat and breadcrumbs? Not really. For the vegetarian option, pick up some Quorn scotch eggs!

Quiche

Fine Dining Lovers
Always a winner at the family picnic. These bad boys are filling, tasty and are perfect served cold.

Cucumber/ Egg Sandwiches

Doesn't really matter what filling you choose, the rule is you have to cut them into triangles, or else!

Mini Pork Pies

BBC Good Food
Miniature food is a staple picnic essential and pork pies are a classic. Need I say more?

Veggie PastiesSausage Rolls

Getaway
Basically, anything wrapped in pastry gets the green light.

Battenburg Cake

BBC Good Food
Small, compact and tasty! Great alternative to Victoria sponge and you don't have to worry about the fresh cream going all over the place.

Strawberry Tarts

Jewels of juicy goodness. Make the most of the British strawberries on offer whilst they're in season (alternatively make a giant bowl of fruit salad!)

DRINK

Pimm's - Can't go wrong with a pitcher of Pimm's punch, a classic summertime beverage packed with plenty of fresh fruit.

Homemade pink lemonade -  Perfect for the hot weather, refreshing and tastier than any old lemonade. 

Gin & Tonic - Bring a little sophistication to your picnic by sipping a G&T (add a dash of elderflower cordial for extra flavour.)

All that's left to do is grab yourself a red and white gingham blanket, your hamper full of delicious snacks and head off to a greener location (oh and don't forget napkins!)
