Sunday June 28th: British Picnic
When you see a properly packed hamper sitting atop blankets layed out on the lawn under heavy pine bows, you know you’re in for a classic British Picnic. You’ll require a Pimm’s Cup and a game of croquet to start, delicious snacks and you’ll need to finish it all off with a proper nap. You don’t have to be a Slow Food member to attend. Bring a partner, a friend, or come solo and learn something new about Picnicin’ it like a Brit.
This class takes place in my (Jessica Bongard’s) home kitchen located in Jericho, VT. It’s extremely important to know how to bring delicious food with you, wherever you may go. There is no need to sacrifice style, grace and most importantly flavor when out and about. Slow Food VT members receive a $5 cash in-hand discount upon arrival.
Pimm’s Cup – Pimm’s No.1, lemonade, ginger beer, cucumber ribbons, borage flowers
Chilled Pea & Mint Soup – Silky, green, cool and refreshing
The Ploughman’s Lunch – Sliced meats, Stilton & Cheddar, chutney, pickled eggs and grilled bread
Eton Mess – Classic strawberries and cream
There just might be a bit of proper ale and cider floating about as well.
