Summer Feasts

Summer recipes for the best picnic

Lorem ipsum
Once you have seating and shade, it’s time to address refreshments. A wicker picnic hamper is a pleasure to look at as well as dine from, and is a sensible investment if you plan on spending your summer al fresco; we love thismodern take on the traditional. If you prefer a more casual approach, a glossy lacquered tray piled generously with small bowls of nibbles and drinks is always a welcome sight.
You can’t go wrong with a great hummus recipe, and we love thitake from cook and writer, Lidey Heuck. "Homemade dips and spreads are one of my go-to dishes for summer picnicking. They're easy to pack, easy to eat, and delicious with whatever veggies, breads or crackers you have on hand. This romesco hummus is inspired by the Spanish sauce of the same name. Made with roasted red peppers, chickpeas, almonds, paprika and olive oil, it's creamy, smoky, and a little bit sweet - the perfect rustic dip for a picnic or any casual summer gathering!”

Outdoor picnics are a perk of warmer weather and somehow make everything taste better. Buy something chic and ready-made, like this, or opt for a low-key menu that you can throw together ahead of time. Open a bottle of rosé and try these Bruschetta from Salvesen Graham friend, Alexandra Dudley.
“I love a glass of rosé all year round, but it feels especially apt to mark the arrival of spring. These strawberry ricotta and pink peppercorn bruschetta are one of my favourite things to enjoy alongside a glass of rosé. Strawberries might seem like an odd inclusion in a savoury snack, but they work wonderfully in this, the sweetness bouncing off the pink peppercorns and creamy ricotta.”

Next up, Alexandra's super simple but delicious tart, “This leek and manchego tart is a great one for weekend lunches or picnics and I love the addition of fennel seeds to the pastry which add a wonderful flavour and texture to the tart. Make it a day ahead if you like.”
