It seems like summer is officially over – and there haven’t been many opportunities for a BBQ or a picnic, however there’s still time yet! If we’re lucky then we’ll get an Indian summer and enjoy mild temperatures and possibly a bit of sunshine through September and October. We’re hoping for some picnic weather soon, and when the sun does decide to shine…we’ve got your al fresco snacks covered.
Cheese is the perfect food to take along in a picnic basket. It is best enjoyed at room temperature, and can be used to create a number of delicious dishes which are easily eaten by hand on the grass. Here at Godminster we love eating cheese in the summer and some of our hampers are ideal to take outdoors! Read on for some of our favourite picnic-perfect cheese ideas.
Cheddar & Cake Combo
Now this is the perfect afternoon tea! Our beautiful vintage organic cheddar can be cut and enjoyed on crackers or as part of a scrumptious sandwich on fresh bread. Follow with another taste sensation – rich and juicy handmade fruit cake. It’s a delicious partnership which is hard to refuse.
Cheddar & Chutney
If you prefer to keep picnics savoury then instead of the cake you may prefer our cheddar & chutney combo. It contains the same organic cheddar cheese, paired with our delectable beetroot and apple chutney. The exclusive chutney has been developed to delightfully complement the creaminess of the cheese, and the handy sizes are perfect for packing in the picnic basket.
If you’re having a large family picnic then you may need more than one truckle of cheese to go round. Welcome the Medium Godminster hamper, ideal for those special occasions or to give to someone as a thoughtful gift. Inside the authentic wicker basket you’ll find almost everything you need for a delicious and sophisticated picnic. Enjoy two different cheddars, two boxes of exquisite biscuits, chutney and cake. Then wash it down with a hand-infused vodka if you fancy a boozy brunch.
Nothing beats a traditional hamper picnic, so order yours today to prepare for the Indian summer (Fingers crossed)!
