Long days, warm evenings and afternoons that are almost ‘too hot’, that’s the theory for August. Even if every day doesn’t quite live up to the dream, when they do you have to grab them along with a picnic!
Whether it’s a quick hour’s lunch break or a long lazy afternoon we just don’t feel it’s summer here at The Hampstead Butcher & Providore until the blanket has been rolled out in the grass and a platter of our favourite charcuterie, cheeses, deli treats, breads and a long cold drink has been served.
Celebrate the fabulousness that is a British summer. Our pick of the British cheeses include Quickes Cheddar, Cornish Yarg and Yorkshire Blue. Serve on crusty bread with a dollop of Ouse Valley Chutney. It couldn’t be more simple or delicious.
Honey Roast or Traditional English Ham, from the wonderful Blythburgh pigs out on the coast of Suffolk taste even better with baby artichokes and sunblushed tomatoes from our deli counter.
The extras make all the difference! Freshly made Houmous, Italian, Greek or Spanish Olives and a fresh crunchy salad complete a great picnic. Throw in a bag of Corkers English Crisps and a deliciously cold bottle of wine (conveniently screw-topped and with loads of choice at under a tenner) and the park beckons.
If you’re throwing more of a picnic party, then canapés including our legendary sausage rolls and BBQ marinated chicken wings along with platters of cured meats, smoked salmon and tarts are in order.
You can pre-order your picnic with us whether it’s a relaxed picnic for 2 or a party for many more than that. Just visit the website to see the selection available or create your own bespoke hamper by speaking with one of our staff on 020 7794 9210.
