Anyone for tennis? As all eyes are on Wimbledon here's a list of the best summertime snacks to ease the tension during those nail-biting volleys
The only way to make Wimbledon even more fun is to combine it with another British summer obsession: a picnic.
These picnic treats are perfect for nibbling on whether you're watching at home, joining fellow enthusiasts in front of a big screen somewhere or lucky enough to actually be in the crowd at Wimbledon ...
1. At home in front of the telly
With all the comforts of home (like a kitchen and a fridge) you can indulge in something fancy.
Classic English picnic fare, this easy quiche also works well made with smoked salmon.
An easier but no less impressive take on the Victoria sponge. This recipe is simply one loaf cake sliced into three, and layered with fresh strawberries, cream and tangy lemon curd. Easy peasy. Promise!
2. On a big screen somewhere
There are outdoor big screens showing Wimbledon all over the country, but you'll need to keep your strength up, so tuck in.
Grated apple and carrot are the secret to these easy-to-make sausage rolls. The fruit and veg keep the pork mince moist and the ready-made puff pastry stays nice and crispy.
How about this for a bit of pomp and circumstance (not to mention hopefulness ... )?
3. At the All England Club
If you're lucky enough to be in Wimbledon, you'll need something easy to carry but substantial enough to keep you going through the tense final set.
Quite possibly the most impressive sandwich in the world, even the occupants of the royal box might cast hungry looks in your direction when this beauty emerges from the hamper.
Quintessentially English and just the thing for a quick bite mid-set, try Cherry Menlove's recipe for buttery scones.
