Picnics are a fantastic way to catch up with family and friends in a relaxed environment during the summer season. In particular, we love being offline, sitting on a rug, sharing great picnic recipes and watching the kids run around exploring the surrounding grounds making new adventures with new found and old friends.
With so much fun to be had, nothing can undo the good times quite like a bit of accidental food poisoning which can occur when foods aren’t stored, transported or saved properly. The following guide is a great check-list of tips for eating outdoors including ways to prepare, transport and store all your favourite picnic recipes.
Keep this list handy as a reminder to keep food cold with bags of ice in an esky, be sure not to let meat juices run onto other foods, remember to pack some protective gauze to help keep flies off the food, don’t forget some fresh water bottles and always dispose of BBQ leftovers when you return home.
So with the safety briefing over, it’s time for some recipes. Our latest Summer Entertaining Cookbook has a number of recipe ideas perfect for picnics, barbecues and at-home outdoor entertaining. Here’s a sneak peak:
