Summer is here and that means in true british fashion we are taking every opportunity to BBQ and eat a few meals al fresco. We love a good picnic and some of favourite staple picnic foods are homemade sausage rolls, some lemonade and of course, egg sandwiches!
- The concept of a picnic is a meal to which everyone contributes something
- The first picnics were held after the French Revolution in 1789 when the royal parks became open to the public for the first time
- In the 19th century, a fashionable group of Londoners, we’ll call them ‘hipsters’, formed the ‘Picnic Society’. They simply met up and each brought entertainment and refreshments.
