Favoured by Yogi Bear, for good reason. Picnics are a great way to get family and friends together for an alfresco eating occasion. It's also an opportunity to bring together a real medley of different foods for the full gastronomic experience.

Do you go traditional and bring a selection of sandwiches? Or do you prefer to mix it up with some platters of meats, dips, breads and pick and choose from a selection? Do you include desserts and sweet choices too, or do you stick to savoury? Perhaps you have a favourite recipe you dig out solely for picnics?

I love a good picnic spread so for me it's about bringing together an array of yummy food things and being able to choose from all the different combinations. My taste definitely leans more towards the savoury items so I'd include lots of cold meats, cheeses, vegetables and dips, breads and I love cold quiches. Whilst I don't tend to pack any of the sweet stuff, I'll normally include a fruit platter for afterwards which always goes down well with the kids.
My picnic choices are wholly influenced by the Enid Blyton books I read as a kid - sandwiches, chocolate cake, and lashings and lashings of lemonade!
Homemade muffins and cupcakes. Fresh salads and sandwiches are always good to bring along to a picnic.

Sandwiches, antipasto treats such as caviar, sun-dried tomato, artichokes, biscuits and dips.
The dish that I've had the most comments on was a meat roll - layers of pastrami and beaten out turkey breast spread with crushed pistachios, cranberries and Swiss cheese rolled up like a Swiss roll in alfoil, baked and allowed to cool. You then slice it up cold to have with salad on your picnic. A bit of a fuss to do but it felt very decadent with along with a glass of champers on the day!
That sounds delicious!
A bottle of wine is nice. I like simple stuff like cheese, bread rolls and fruit and a little something sweet like cookies is good too.
Champagne. Then whatever is easy (roast chicken & rolls).
Sparkling wine
Minted egg tart. Mmmmm mmmmm.
