Starters & Nibbles
Whatever you fancy from the World Deli selection. As I’m trying to eat a bit less meat and stick to my #halfcuphabit, this range offers a really flavourful selection of vegetarian options (plus chicken & chorizo for hubby).
I always like to serve a buffet of little things that provide a lot of variety and texture. This allows everyone to take what they want and sharing means there is always food conversation. Although, it could just be the company I keep – we talk a lot about food!
Chicken wings, a quiche (or two), cubed cheese and the obligatory Scotch Eggs round out my favourite picnic. However, it is must that you bring your own homemade BBQ sauce. Store-bought is never as good.
In Season Fruit
#Wimbledon2018 is 2 July – 15 July. Of course, there are strawberries and cream but pick any in season fruit – strawberries, raspberries, peaches – is great for a picnic. If you have leftovers, fear not. Bring them home and turn them into syrups and ice creams.
I adore the Verdant range of picnic accessories at Waitrose. Blanket, bag, plates, cutlery, cups and more!
