Publishers Text

Irreverent, eccentric, and oh so timely, Max's Picnic Book is the follow up the Sunday Times Bestseller, Max's Sandwich Book. Both an ode to the long-standing art of eating outdoors, and a typically entertaining and frivolous reinvention of it, Max and Ben will first dissect the highs and lows of picnic history, before creating 24 themed menus of portable dishes, of every shape and size, that you can prepare ahead of time and serve cold or at room temperature when you get to your destination, wherever that destination might be.

Including ingenious hacks – think flavored salts for dipping boiled eggs and pre-cut crudites, soft-serve ice cream with a shot of espresso and dash of whisky for dessert, and how a pot of curry powder in your pocket is an impromptu picnic must-have – as well as twists on familiar picnicking favorites, this book is as much about how and why to picnic as it is about providing the recipes to do so.

Ransacking the annals of time, Max and Ben will interpret the ways in which we can eat our doors through the spirited eyes of their picnicking heroes – Hunter S. Thompson and Frida Kahlo to Fergus Henderson and Delia Smith, to name a few, that will leaving the reader with a broadened perception of what a picnic is, and a desire to never miss an opportunity to do so.
