Colette: a carnivore’s delight!
On top of their classic hampers, gourmet deli from Chelsea Colette offers a seasonal range of luxurious picnic hampers to make the most of those park gatherings, catering for everyone with vegetarian, pescatarian and carnivore options.
We have our eye on their meaty number, brimming with snacks and the likes of homemade pork pies, a slice of ham hock terrine, and a jambon-Comté cheese baguette. For a sweet finish, the hazelnut and the lemon drizzle cakes should do - now you just need to find these three mates to help you devour this whole feast.
Picnic for the Carnivores hampers, £140 for 4 people.
