Cotswold Picnic Hamper

The Cotswold Picnic Hamper is crammed full of delicious Award Winning delights and perfect for a picnic at any time of the year.

Award Winning Mrs Darlington’s sweet apple chutney is made with love and a perfect accompaniment to The Cheshire Cheese Companies Black Bob cheese truckle. A creamy well rounded strong mature cheddar, it tastes so good you wont want to stop eating it!  Add to the Farmhouse Biscuits where the Monterey Jack and paprika savoury crackers have a creamy taste of cheese and is complemented by the smokey tones of paprika.

Smother The Maretti Italian style bruschette chips with your favourite artisan pate and add a spoonful of the Mrs Darlington’s Piccalilli. An array of mixed vegetables, mustard and spices giving a tangy taste.  The Deans’s cheesy bites and Sarah Darlington’s baby onions are a wonderfully moreish nibbly snack and a delightful side.

You need a delicious cake for a perfect picnic, so we have a hand finished cherry and almond cake from Riverbank Bakery. Packed with glace cherries and decorated with flaked almonds, it seems too good to be true.  Carefully crafted are the Anna orange thins.  Delicately smooth, these spiced orange flavoured biscuits are an inspiration.

For a sweet treat, we have a proper old fashioned box of assorted toffees. Using traditional recipes these sweets create the true taste of the old fashioned sweet shop.  And finally a gourmet box of marshmallows from Happy Mallows. In peaches and cream flavour this is a box of fruitful bliss and a delicate sweet summery taste.

Choose you favourite bottle to accompany these delights from our superb selection and your ready to go. Just remember to pack the chairs and the sun cream!
