THE CHIC PICNIC SELECTION
Headed for lunch in the great outdoors? Decadent deli picks are somehow so much more stylish than a sandwich, says acting food, wine & flowers editor Emma Sleight
As soon as the sun emerges, I just want to escape the office and spend a lazy lunchtime in a flower-strewn meadow, basket and blanket in hand. While finding a picturesque setting might be challenging, at least these new deli products offer an alfresco-ready antidote to packed lunch fatigue. Our handcrafted sausage rolls are encased in buttery puff pastry that’s made by a small team in North Yorkshire who ensure that every roll has more than 2,000 delicate, flaky layers. Our Cornish Cruncher cheese recently turned 10 and we’re celebrating with this creamy paté version, which is blended with crème fraiche and topped with a glossy slick of sharp-sweet red onion marmalade. All you need is fresh crusty bread and your shades. Idyllic landscape optional.
