If you are a picnic-loving family and already have your picnic basket ready, The Moveable Feast cookbook gives you great ideas for picnic food for all tastes and ages. We like the fact that the book gives complete menu ideas, from starters and mains to dessert and drink ideas. It includes menus that children will love and eat in the great outdoors, as well as romantic adult picnic ideas. Where possible, the authors incorporate seasonal and local food to keep it sustainable.
To give you an idea of an adult picnic basket, the Farmers’ Market Basket incorporates: Feta Onion Dip, Baguette Sandwich with Fresh Vegetables, Basil and Mozzarella, Sweet Mixed Berries with a Melon Vodka and Sprite drink. Most kids would eat all of the above with pleasure, so just find a recipe for a kids’ drink and this could be a lovely picnic for the whole family.
Overall, this is a good resource to give you ideas of how to pack your picnic basket ready for an enjoyable feast outside. It is certainly worth to have handy on your cookbook shelf. Obviously, you can mix and match and add your own ideas when packing for your next picnic.
