A Perrier Pique-Nique

Oh finally summer has landed in England! I don’t know about you, but every time it’s this warm I want to start taking all my meals al fresco, and sit in the park for days and days on end. Fortunately for you and I, Perrier have brought the Perrier Pique-Nique to London.

Growing up in Scotland, picnics were often on the banks of Loch Lomond. When I was old enough to drive, I’d pack up the car with a picnic blanket, a basket of goodies from mum, a few picnic blankets and, er, an umbrella or too for when the inevitable Scottish rain came down!

Flash forward a few years and picnics in London look like me calling a few friends, packing up my favourite picnic basket (though I do also have my eye on this beauty, and of course one of these…), my new favourite anchor water glasses, some Perrier to hydrate us…

Another kind of fizz to dehydrate us..! And a picnic basket full of treats.

No picnic is complete without a tart or a quiche (my top tip is to keep one in the freezer so when British summer strikes, you’re always prepared!), some strawberries and slice or four of cake!

Serve it up among laughter, popping of corks, and plenty of food to keep you going for the afternoon. You just can’t beat it.

  • Would it be terribly un-British of me to take this basket and have a picnic on an immaculately mowed lawn? See, I have a phobia of soil and general mistrust of the wild outdoors but I LOVE the idea of a picnic! I guess a Pique Nique would be ideal for a country-fearing, city girl like me…x
