The Picnic Cookbook

There is no better way to see the countryside than by picnic, whether it’s afternoon tea in a garden, a packed lunch on a hilltop, a beach barbecue or a campfire fry-up. Laura Mason’s new book provides 100 recipes for outdoor feasts, such as sausage rolls and homemade lemonade, gazpacho shots and pistachio chicken, and sweet potato scones and Cornish pasties for Bonfire night, as well as tips on transporting food and cooking outdoors, and a list of some of the best National Trust places to visit.
