We asked Great British Menu judge Matthew Fort to talk us through his must-haves for dining in the great outdoors.




My favourite picnic spot is... the banks of the River Eden in Cumbria. For peace, beauty and a lifetime of memories. However, if I’m in London, I love the great theatre of a station, so it would have to be St Pancras Station; there’s so much great food easily sourced, with the added benefit of comfortable seating!


The condiment I always take with me is... salt and pepper. Simple, yes, but crucial.


My plan when it rains is... To picnic in a city park. You can then head for one of the covered bands stands dotted around to carry on. Or just to picnic in the kitchen, which has its own charm.


My top tip for transporting food is… don't take too much. Remember you, or someone else, will have to carry every item you pack, maybe quite a long way.




My must-have is... It’s a difficult one but I would say the Wolff & Evans Mini Scotch Eggs from Sourced Market - I'm a sucker for a good Scotch Egg, it’s the perfect picnic food.
