Just the thing for a picnic or street party food
A Traditional British Street Party

With a cluster of bank holidays, wonderful weather and a royal wedding, we don’t need an excuse to get out and party with friends and family. This is what traditional street parties used to be like.
You don’t need a permit to serve food as long as you’re not selling it at your street party. But it’s important that the food is prepared in a safe and hygienic manner so see my tips in Baking and Hygiene. There are lots of ideas about what to prepare for street parties or picnics. We used to have sandwiches, scotch eggs, sausage rolls, cooked meats, home made cakes and biscuits.
This Easter Sunday, after a lovely walk around our local parkland it was warm enough to have a picnic. I served up an Easter version of Grandma's Simnel Cake as a scrumptious treat.
