Matthew Fort has also handpicked his hamper favourites from the selection:
Matthew Fort: 'I'm a sucker for a good Scotch Egg…it’s the perfect picnic food.'
MF: 'The heart of my picnic, mighty, meat, moreish...pick up a warm, crusted baguette from Le Pain to wrap it together with horseradish & cornichons'
MF: ‘I've got to have cheese, and Bath Blue, a winner at the World Cheese Awards, spread on the marvellous Peter's Yard Crisp breads is just the ticket.'
MF: 'Pudding to finish, the posset rich with a tang of lemon, or the parfait crunchy, healthy on a smooth conveyor belt of creamy yoghurt’
MF: 'Actually, not quite the finish. Time to sit back for a cheerfully indulgent chocolate treat before snoozing away the afternoon.'
