Park picnics and garden gatherings are back big time from the 29th March. Below is an overview of what our clients are offering, some better suited for a picnic in the park and others for a garden BBQ.
A freshly pressed juice makes a picnic. Look no further than new brand, Wildpress, whose range of apple juices are created using heritage varieties from sustainable orchards in the UK. Impress your mates with a sharp and punchy thirst quencher. www.wildpressjuice.com
Ottolenghi has you covered for the most vibrant picnic fare around. Daily changing salads bursting with flavour or bakery items to-go, but also the team are launching a limited edition ‘Ottolenghi in a Bag’ - with all the essential items you need for a glorious picnic packed into one of their 100% organic cotton tote bags. ottolenghi.slerp.com/order/
Spring To Go is the one stop shop for creating a truly stylish picnic, with Rosemary and sea salt focaccia, Cheese straws, Date and cheddar scones and cheeses, such as the Devon Beenleigh blue or an aged-Lancashire Holbrook to accompany. Afternoon tea is also a lovely way to celebrate the warmer weather with Rhubarb sun buns packed full with vanilla custard and delightfully light Fruit cake with marmalade glaze. springrestaurant-shop.co.uk/
Forget the prep, tupperwares and cling film and simply order one of Fulham Road’s finest picnic hampers from Colette. It comes complete with a traditional wicker basket brimming with an assortment of handpicked treats and fine French fancies. Nationwide delivery available for all hampers. https://colette.co.uk/shop-category/hampers/
For those in North London, Trullo’s neighbourhood shop can help with all your park bench needs. Whether you’re after breakfast pastries and a coffee (think carbonara swirl!) or a solid sandwich (meatball sub or a hefty slice of focaccia) or are going for a classier aperitivo al bencho (wines, negroni pouch, charcuterie, cheeses and much much more).
Once open, the hotel and lounge will be launching The Pilgrm Picnic - a new picnic box with a delicious assortment of freshly-made picnic nibbles, snacks, salads, charcuterie, and delicious cheeses. Located just a short stroll from Hyde Park, guests will be able to add the picnic onto their stay and locals will be able to pre-order and collect on the day.

This small producer led Italian wine shop is the perfect place to grab a bottle to raise a toast with at reunions with friends and family.
