With summer now well and truly on the way (we hope!), it’s time to turn our thoughts to long and lazy picnics. Food historian and writer Laura Mason shares her favourite picnic recipes in her new book The Picnic Cookbook (Pavilion).
Available in hardback, The Picnic Cookbook features a wide variety of recipes suitable for a picnic for any occasion. Whether it is a feast with friends, a fun day with children, Sunday roast on the BBQ or evenings around the campfire, there is something to suit anyone at any time.
Though not every recipe is accompanied with a picture, the overall photography is absolutely beautiful. The dishes are mouthwatering and, more importantly, relatively fuss-free. If you are looking for inspiration that packs a picnic everyone will love, look no further.
The Picnic Cookbook: Outdoor Feasts for Every Occasion is available from all good book sellers now (rrp. £18.99).
