Picnic season starts!

Seasonal Ideas

Matt's packed lunchWhen planning food to take on days out, spices probably don’t ordinarily spring to mind, but we think that they should! Our website contains quite a few recipes that are suitable to be packed for an interesting and tasty picnic. There are some fantastic ideas for unusual dips in The Knowledge, perfect to enjoy with crudités, tortilla chips and breadsticks. Instead of conventional sandwiches, try our recipe for Chicken Shawarma wraps. They make a filling lunch treat and they are just as delicious cold as they are hot. Another fabulous picnic item are the sticky Achiote Chicken wings – just remember to take lots of serviettes!
