picnic recipes

Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

Goodness many shared experiences :o
I had a bad reaction to both my small pox and whooping cough vaccines and ended up in hospital. I had measles when I was three and still remember being confined to a darkened room for what felt like ever to protect my eyes. Hideous chicken pox when I was 16, they were quite literally every where.........
We also moved when I was 4 from a flat to a house, it was the summer and I have a strong memory of my grandparents arriving early evening with a picnic basket full of food and fizzy pop (which was a very rare treat) which we all ate in the back garden sat on a tartan travelling rug. I thought it was marvellous as we'd only had a shared washing green in the flat and pestered my Mum every day to have a picnic, I think I ate most of my meals in the garden that summer. :D

I have always rather envied people who spent (a happy) childhood in the same place. I'm sure it promotes stability and good friendships. I feel like a nomad :lol:


Yes, lots of happy memories... playing in the road outside with the neighbouring kids, going to the local school etc. In fact I now live in the road that ajoins it, so back to my roots where I still know plenty of the locals. :tu:

I had shingles in 1999 in the middle of wedding preparations. It was so painful I couldn't wear underwear. The GP said I had come too late to help - mostly because it was the weekend and I couldn't get an appointment for 3 days after that. :evil: It was at that point I changed GP.

i was very ill with measles when I was 3 but I don't remember much about it other than anxious hoverings. My dad was sent to the fever hospital when he caught scarlet fever at 5. he was there for 7 months because he caught diptheria whil he was there.

We lived with my maternal grandparents until 1947 when we got a council house. I remeber the day we moved in because my aunt took me off to a local beauty spot with a picnic to keep me occupied until the furniture was in. I ate cherries for the first time.

Picnic themed...... At home, sandwiches made at the tea table, I had seen kids at school with cheese and ham in a sarnie, Dad said I could have one or the other but not both together in the same sarnie !

Shingles first time last year at 52/53 horrible at the time but more so as I had three further outbreaks during 2018 all my face, head eye. Horribly painful but thankfully ok so far in 2019 :D
I made an asparagus, leek & ricotta tart tonight which would be fab for a picnic lunch as fairly robust. I used ready made/rolled puff pastry so not too faffy to make.

I don't think I saw two things in a sandwich until much later (except maybe cress with egg)! My mother would probably have said the same.
My 'sandwich moment' came aged 5 when we went to tea with friends and had banana sandwiches made with brown bread. I had had no idea that people put bananas in sandwiches and it was a happy revelation. My mother disliked brown bread and any fresh fruit in sandwiches and was surprised at my enthusiasm. I also remember a few years later telling the lady next door that I liked sausage sandwiches. I had never even heard of anyone putting sausages in sandwiches at the time so it was a total lie! Next time I went to tea she had carefully cooked and cooked sausages and sliced them and we had very lovingly made sausage sandwiches :oops:. We all enjoyed them!

Your tart sounds very good ltc :chops:

In London fish finger sandwiches are currently a Big Thing. Not suitable for picnics but can be very good - I had one made with lovely homemade fish fingers (goujons really) and homemade tartare sauce in lovely sourdough. Bit of salad somewhere around. Yum.

We had sandwiches with with two things in - but not 2 proteins. Egg and cress, egg with cucumber or tomato, cheese and tomato, cheese and onion etc Ham or other cold meat and pickle

In the 1960's my parents bought my aunt and uncle a "proper" picnic case for their sliver weddding. It was like a suitcase covered in blue leatheret and had real china and cutlery. Not one but 2 blue covered Thermos flasks, a milk bottle and a sugar box as well as salt and pepper shakers and 2 large food boxes.
I still have it but haven't used it for years because the fact it it doesn't hold much food! It was trundled round the country side in uncles Hillman Imp. and we always sat on the travel rug he had at college

We’ve got a proper wicker hamper ... with contents including crockery ... weighs a ton
... fine if you’re happy to picnic in a car park, but if you want to have your lunch more than a few feet from the car you need two sturdy footmen to carry it :rolleyes:

I had my first ever fish finger sandwich on Wednesday evening. I didnt expect to enjoy it as much as I did. M&S cod fillet fish fingers, tartare sauce on a semi crusty roll with tartare sauce, salad on the side. May have another some time soon! :hungry:

I love a fishfinger sandwich, sometimes at home and other times when I meet my ex-colleagues for lunch.
We always go to the same pub and always order fishfinger sandwiches.

The only difference is that I can now have a beer with mine and they cannot during the working day.

I am really sorry but I just couldn't imagine anything like a fish finger sandwich. Why is what I want to know ? When I come tho think of it I don't eat many sandwiches, Bread and i don't go together. I asked Mr R if he fancies such a thing and he said he really didn't. I would have to make my own fish fingers and bread

I find that odd - surely the point of bread is that it goes with everything?

The thing about a fish finger sandwich is I think the texture. Soft bread, reallly crisp crumb layer, the fish itself and a lot of tartare sauce. And it tastes nice!

Fish Finger sandwiches are my daughter's favourite sandwich of choice and I have to admit with a good quality fish fingers and nice bread (and for me, tartare sauce) - they are delicious... It's the crunchy coating of the fingers and the softness of the bread too … :chops: :hungry:

Meant to add that our local Dogs Trust café has fish finger sandwiches on their menu … I had to educate them not to cut mine into triangles as I needed to add the tartare sauce that was served on the side (along with a nice little salad) … however, the last one I had was made from a very inferior make of filling … the fish was tough and could hardly be cut - and I think microwaved rather than grilled. I complained but didn't get any satisfactory response. I haven't had one since. :(

Fish finger sandwiches have never been in my repertoire, and after hearing so much about them, I did make them, but I was very disappointed in my effort, even though buying really good ingredients, and I am rather fond of sandwiches in general, so it was a surprise to be so disappointed. However recently we were in a tiny harbour cafe in Nairn, and I decided to try theirs....ciabatta freshly baked, thick melting butter, really chunky fish and hm tartare...delicious!

I love fish finger sandwiches and they appear quite frequently now on pub menus. I think the key is to make sure the fishfingers are nice and crispy and the bread has a certain crustiness to it, otherwise it all feels a bit pappy. Tartare sauce or a nice lemony mayo with mine.

Newly arrived edition of Saveurs has some lovel looking picnic recipes. Everything from fallafell and tatziki to goats cheese, olive and spinach cake. They are all very portable and easily eaten without too many weapons or too much fuss.

Having read through this https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/the ... raditions/

I’m wondering whether Wargarden’s expectations of picnic food recipes might be quite different from our own. Rather than easily packed and transportable sandwiches and cold baked goods the site seems to cover what I would call barbecue food or what some call ‘a cookout’.

It’s funny the things you remember. I remember that Chools was vegan/ vegetarian but I don’t remember a falling out, rather that he was here one day and gone the next. Rather like whoever the person was who always posted first thing in the morning. I think he worked in a hotel or something. Always chatty but dis appeared.

Just when I thought picnics were dead and buried we got an notice through the door yesterday informing us that NEXT SUNDAY if the Fete des Voisins (Neighbours) and that this year it is to be a picnic :scared: :scared:

I am rather miffed because of the short notice and the fact that we are already committed elsewhere for lunch. However we feel we must contribute something and appear for a few minutes. What would you contribute??

I’d tend to take something typically British, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, scones with jam and cream or a Victoria sponge filled with cream and fresh strawberries.

I agree, something quite robust like sausage rolls or quiche tartlets.

It is the 'Big Lunch' here today and as usual the local community centre has a programme of events. You can bring a picnic but the idea is to bring food to share which is all placed on an indoor table. The list of 'dont's' gets longer each year. You eat at your own risk and are responsible for what your children eat. Things in packets should be left in packets so that people can read the ingredients. If home made you eat at your own risk. Nothing should be filled with cream, items which contain meat, cheese etc must not stay on the table for more than 2 hours and will be thrown away if not collected .... etc, etc. Bearing all that in mind, crisps might be suitable! Maybe some cheese straws or biscuits Rats as you are not staying.

I didn't notice the link before, don't think I'll be paying £50 (Inc shipping) for a lunch jar

I have a Thermos brand one, it was sold as 500 ml nominal capacity but barely holds 480 ml, rather annoying as I mainly wanted to use it to make yogurt, and it won't hold a whole carton of UHT milk + starter.

It would however work for a lunch when hiking, though I don't think it keeps things very warm, must test it again.
