Here are some ideas to make your picnics interesting yet stress free for the person hosting the occasion. Devils-on-horseback (prunes filled with camembert and rolled in bacon) are a popular, yet often overlooked, option. Their make up ensures limited oozing and provides savoury bursts of flavour.


1) De-pip prunes and place a nice sized square of camembert into the prune. Surround with streaky bacon

2) Heat a pan and add butter and a splash of sunflower oil

3) Add rolls and sear, finish off in the oven and serve warm

Please post your comments and any food-related questions below. I look forward to hearing from you.
