Perfect Picnics

There’s something magical about picnics that makes them much than the sum of their parts. Who would have thought that a sandwich and some grass would ever amount to so much or would end up the single most enjoyable way to spend a sunny day? (After going to the beach, but how many of us live close enough to enjoy that?) But it is, and most of us will jump at the first chance to have one.  And the modern picnic has come on in leaps and bounds from the days of Enid Blyton’s picnic fare of shrimp sandwiches and hard boiled eggs (thank god). Instead we’re all the height of culinary sophistication... and we’re coveting picnic sets to match!
