The essentials for a great picnic would include the following:

  1. A picnic basket filled with snacks like chips, mint & coriander chutney sandwiches, desserts, candy, fruits and some sodas. You can try a wide variety of foods from cured and cooked meats, terrines, pates, game, salads, roasted poultry, mince-meat pies, plums cakes and pastries to lobster and shellfish served with fresh vegetable salads followed by desserts such as tarts, cakes, English scones and seasonal summer fruits. This would be all accompanied with aperitifs, champagne and wine and finished with a classic cup of tea.
