The park picnic for two
“Look, I rarely picnic. If I’ve learnt anything from the picnics of my youth it’s that grass stains suck and the only creature on planet Earth that has the same determination and inner strength as Beyoncé is the common ant. Well, rejoice my fellow picnic pessimists, because Ombra’s park picnic for two has made the whole thing pretty lovely. For 25 quid, you get focaccia, salami, burrata, and more - but the DIY sandwich situation is the real winner of the lot.”
Venetian specialists Ombra are offering a handmade pasta and sauce collection service for you to cook at home. At the moment it’s available if you’re near their restaurant in Cambridge Heath.
