Yellow Door’s big picnic at Hillsborough Castle

Picnics are like sports. You win some, you lose some. They sometimes end in a draw when the hardening and curling ham sandwiches of the first half are overwhelmed and left behind by brilliant buns, cakes and buttered gingerbread in the second.

Critical to a picnic’s success is its content. Most of my picnics for a day’s outing feature egg mayonnaise sandwiches and a Snickers. I’m very happy with that but I’ve been on some picnics where the host has gone the whole nine yards with proper short crust pastry pork pies, potato salads, cakes, homemade lemonades and electric cool boxes to keep the champagne chilled.
