Life In London
Pack the perfect picnic
Seeing as lockdown restrictions have been lifted slightly, it's time to enjoy this 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...
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!
Always a winner at the family picnic. These bad boys are filling, tasty and are perfect served cold.
Doesn't really matter what filling you choose, the rule is you have to cut them into triangles, or else!
Miniature food is a staple picnic essential and pork pies are a classic. Need I say more?
Basically, anything wrapped in pastry gets the green light.
Small, compact and tasty! A great alternative to Victoria sponge and you don't have to worry about the fresh cream going all over the place.
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!)
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!)
