The Great British Picnic Guide

Packing up a picnic hamper, throwing a rug in the car boot and savouring an outdoor feast is a time-honoured tradition that never fails to excite and delight. For adults the word picnic evokes warm childhood memories and the enjoyment of simple pleasures, and for children its suggestion of fun and treats brightens up the dullest of days.

In this beautifully illustrated book, passionate picnicker Mark Price celebrates, and offers inspiration for, this great British institution – in all its guises. He provides seasonal recipes for all manner of drinks and picnic fare – from quick and easy sandwiches and soups, to more elaborate pies and cakes – whatever the time of year, whatever the weather and however much time you have to prepare. He also offers:

• tips on how best to transport certain foods
• what equipment you’ll need when you arrive
• a comprehensive guide to 20 top British picnic sites, including a map of the site, how to find the perfect picnic spot and a list of local producers for a ‘cheat’s’ picnic
