Articles on the world of food, videos, recipes and seasonal inspiration.

Summer is here, and we all know that when the sun comes out you don’t want to be stuck indoors eating your lunch when you could be out enjoying the lovely weather! So why not go alfresco, turn in your pots and pans for a basket and blanket, and head outdoors with a picnic from Forman & Field.



This year, we’re excited to announce we’ve introduced our brand new feature on our website: Build Your Own Picnic! (It does exactly what it says on the tin)

Browse through our wide selection of delicious products, and simply choose your favourites to create your own picnic. You even have the option to select a picnic carrier or basket if you would like! We love the personal touch with this new feature, but if there’s just too much for you to choose from you can always opt for one of our classic set picnics.

There are plenty of events this summer for you to get stuck into, (not forgetting to take your picnic with you of course) here’s just a few to get you started:

Henley Regatta July 2016

Goodwood July 2016 

Hampton Court Palace Flower Show July 2016

Glyndebourne Festival May-Aug 2016

British Summer Time at Hyde Park July 2016

Wimbledon July 2016

Anniversary Games July 2016

Notting Hill Carnival Aug 2016

Film 4 Summer Screen at Somerset House Aug 2016

Of course, there’s always your local park if you fancy something a bit more low-key to enjoy quality time with family and friends 🙂

There’s also a chance to win one of our Finger Pick Picnic when you sign up to our newsletter.

So ditch those rain coats, leave the cooking for another day, and head out in to the summer sunshine with a Forman & Field picnic!
