Picnicking is something of a national sport. We do it at country fairs, while we watch cricket, while we play cricket, while we’re at the beach, while we hike, tramp and walk, and while we pretend to fish. (Apparently, it doesn’t matter if you don’t catch anything. A bit like when we play cricket.)
This perfect summer gift is all the inspiration that anyone would need to stock up on insect repellent and sunscreen, and start searching the web for how to make pork pies. From scratch. Including the pastry.
Luckily, it includes a cheese board. Phew! So, just head for the chiller at the supermarket, pork pie long forgotten. And it has a corkscrew. Maybe, throw in sandwiches and lemonade.
And take one for the team. All 11 of them.
