With the Spring season in full bloom and the rule of six outdoors, there’s no better time to roll out your picnic blanket and soak up the sun! Whether you’d prefer a picnic in the park or at home in the garden, dining al fresco with fabulous food and drink is the perfect way to catch up with family and friends.
As travel restrictions are still in place in the UK, we’ve sourced the web to bring you five different (and delicious) themed picnics from around the world! Travelling from East to West, we’re taking your taste buds on a trip with our supermarket sweep for the perfect picnic experience. But before we jet away, we’re starting on home-ground with a good old fashioned British-style picnic.
British Themed Picnic
When it comes to Summertime in Britain, we say goodbye to the hearty home-cooked dishes and hello to the barbeques and finger foods. Our quintessential British picnic includes a selection of classic sandwiches, all-butter scones, whipped cream and strawberries and ready-to-drink Pimm’s – in other words, the perfect British picnic feast!
Mediterranean Themed Picnic
Inspired by the eating habits originating from Italy, Greece and Spain, the Mediterranean diet can be considered as one of the healthiest diets to date. Although there’s no singular approach, the Mediterranean diet usually includes fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, as well as lots of fish and extra virgin olive oil – oh, and of course, a moderate intake of red wine too!
Our supermarket sweep for a Mediterranean themed picnic is inclusive of all the above, offering you a fresh and flavoursome spread that will satisfy your soul!
Caribbean Themed Picnic
The Caribbean diet features colour and flavour in every dish. With seasoned meats, hearty beans, leafy greens, refreshing citrus fruits and rum, the traditional Caribbean cuisine creates a real kick at mealtimes. In the words of Levi Roots, our Caribbean-inspired picnic will let you “put some music in your food”!
USA Themed Picnic
Although it’s not considered the healthiest, there’s no denying that American food is delicious! From melt-in-the-mouth beef burgers to creamy mac and cheese, typical American cuisine offers food that comforts the soul.
Including American’s most popular sandwich and bagel combination, along with sweet snacks too, this USA style picnic will take your taste buds on a trip across the pond and straight to the states!
Asian Themed Picnic
The traditional Asian diet focuses on creating wellness through food – reducing meat, dairy, and sweet desserts and replacing them with grains, nuts, and fruit. Fish and shellfish are also key protein sources in the Asian diet and are often seasoned with spices and soy to maximise flavour. With this in mind, we’ve created a varied Asian-inspired spread that’s full of flavours to nourish your body.
