Spring is finally here! Win picnic goodies and get 10% off at Rococo and English Provender

Finally, a glimpse of spring! We think that deserves a celebratory competition. This lovely weather has made us think of picnics, and we’ve put together 3 sets of  picnic goodies for you to win.

English Provender Rococo Picnic Giveaway

Of course, any picnic we hold would have to contain chocolate, and the praline quail egg crate is perfect – Chantal even painted the wrapper to look like a picnic blanket! Winners will also get a set of 3 full-sized dark chocolate floral bars (rose, violet and jasmine flavours). The English Provender Company have given us a selection of their delicious chutneys, condiments and dressings to go with our picnic set, including caramelised onion chutney to go with cheese, lemon and ginger curd to spread on hunks of crusty bread and tangy sauces to liven up cold meats.

Each of our 3 winners will receive 2 jars from the English Provender Company, 1 crate of praline quail eggs and 1 set of 3 dark chocolate floral bars.


Entering is easy

For a chance to win, just tell us: what is your recipe for a Great British Picnic?

Let us know by posting in the comments here or on our Facebook or Twitter pages by 29th April so that we can get you your prize in time for the Bank Holiday weekend.

    Sunshine would be nice! Some chilled wine would be too…I like tabbouleh (not very British!) some cold roast chicken and strawberries. The kids love sausage rolls, frittata, grapes and crisps. Oh and melody is an olive monster, so plenty of olives!

    keep it simple!t a little extra effort, like laying out the food on a clean tablecloth and keeping the food pretty and fresh, goes a long way..

    the best picnic recipe has to be my loaded bread, bake a fresh loaf of white bread, once cooled cut off the top, scoop out the insides and fill with what ever you may like as a warm sandwich filler, mine has to be fresh chicken, fresh mozzarella, onion and basil, layer them up, then place some more of the scooped up bread back on top, place back into the oven for about 20-30 minutes. delish and very filling for a summer picnic and all homemade! 😉

    I find picnics enormously cheering, as they are a triumph of hope over experience:-) I love baking in anticipation of a picnic and then packing a cooling bag and a basket full of delicious goodies. My perfect picnic would combine a distinctly pastoral setting and a live theatre performance. We would drink Sauternes and eat egg and cress sandwiches, parmesan cheese straws, chick pea and feta salad, guacamole, houmous and stuffed baby peppers. We’d finish with homemade flapjacks and carrot cake.
