Summer in the Park is back! And this year, we’re offering you some inspiration to jazz up your picnic basket by approaching some of the leading chefs, restaurants and food services in Greenwich & Bexley.
This week’s picnic inspiration comes from Y on the Lake.
We at the Y on the lake love picnics as they are about having food with friends or family, telling stories, let kids play next to you while having a cup of tea/coffee and just enjoy the weather and the countryside.
What would you pack in your picnic?
I will grab one of our home-made chicken pittas with the Asian slaw and one of our lovely ice caramel lattes.
What is your fail-safe picnic recipe?
Roasted Red Peppers hummus
3 whole red peppers
1x 800g. of chickpeas washed and drained
2 cloves of garlic
1 table spoon of tahini
2 tea spoons of smoked paprika
1 table spoon of lemon juice
80 ml. of olive oil
Blend all together and season with salt! Enjoy! You can have some carrot or bread sticks to dip in.
What can people buy from Y on the Lake for their picnics?
They can buy one of our red peppers humus, sweet potatoes and halloumi home made wraps and I can share our hummus recipe with them
