Who doesn’t love a picnic?
They’re fun any time of year, but Picnic Month is a great excuse to celebrate and be creative. While the classic picnic foods, fried chicken and potato salad, will always remain favourites, there are lots of great themes to be explored. An Italian theme could include cold pasta salad, cheese and cold cuts, and a bottle of wine or Italian soda to wash it all down. An Asian theme could be fun, or try Greek, with some feta cheese, olives, and baklava for dessert. The possibilities are limitless! These days, there are lots of handy new cooling devices for food and/or beverages. But the ultimate picnic fantasy is still of a traditional wicker basket lined with a checked cloth, and filled with fresh bread, cheese, fruit and a bottle of fine wine. That’s picnic perfection!
