Charming Nod to Picnics Past

Picnics have been around for centuries, the earliest ones tracing back to the 14th century. The art of picnicking was enjoyed by the wealthy until the 1700’s when picnicking became a fashionable social event with participants contributing items or dishes to share. As picnicking gained popularity, different containers were fashioned out of tin or wicker to transport food and necessities for eating while outdoors or traveling. An assortment of items such as chicken and ham salads, bread, cheese, and a bottle of wine often filled a basket and was commonly shared among a group of people.

Dine on the Road Like Kings

Food has the ability to enhance every experience we have, and while a common road trip may seem less than exotic, by adding the right foods, your voyage can be transformed into something extraordinary. A gourmet meal can be prepared with ease. Sandwiches, salads, fresh fruit, baked goods and a great bottle of wine, the perfect compliment to your summer road trip. Venture beyond ordinary sandwich combination, choose an assortment of great flavors between interesting breads like ciabatta, foccacia and pita. Prepare your favorite potato or pasta salad, stored beautifully in Mason jars. They will add just the right amount of charm while giving your foods the best seal for freshness. Take a tip from the French and travel light with a fresh baguette, cheese, a package of prosciutto and a few apples. Eating simply can exude a romantic feel and leave a lot to the imagination.
