Picnic

Street food is great for a picnic because it is very easy to transport, and the basket will be much lighter on the return journey because everything will have been eaten with no waste. Whether you are meeting in the park, on the beach, on a hilltop, or at the races, the delectable contents of your basket will prove the envy of all around because of its culinary diversity. A picnic made up of street food specialties will be much more memorable than some sandy cheese sandwiches or plain cold chicken. Instead, conjure up images of Mediterranean holidays, ancient spice routes, and oriental feasts. Pack your food, don’t forget your refreshing drinks and fresh crusty bread, and most of all enjoy your day.

The food used for a picnic is very pick-up-able, and you will not need an excess of plates, knives, or forks. Spread out the contents of your hamper, and enjoy impressing your friends with bright colors, contrasting textures, and delicious flavors.
