Regent's Park: What's in the picnic basket?
- sinjawns Jun 1, 2009 11:17 AM
I hope to woo my SO with a lovely picnic in Regent's Park at the end of June.
Where shall I go en route to the park (Marylebone/ Bloomsbury area; I'll be on foot) to fill the picnic basket?
And what are some wowsy things to include with the bottle of champagne? No dietary restrictions but (sadly) some money restrictions-- recs for good value items appreciated.
Thanks in advance for supporting my wooing effort.
You go stop at Bea's of Bloomsbury or Paul's in Marylebone to pick up a nice dessert or breads.
What a lovely idea! You really can't go wrong with some good cheese, proper charcuterie, and accompaniments (fresh baguette, celery, chutneys, etc). Cake or pastries to finish and don't forget the cheese knife!
(That said, I was once treated to a Middle Eastern picnic of hummus, pitta, jewelled couscous, delicious cold lemon & garlic roast chicken, grilled halloumi with chilli jam, and a decent Lebanese wine. Different but yummy.)
