Besara - move over Houmous!

Pack The Perfect (Vegan) Picnic with Waitrose

Basically everything you need to pack the perfect picnic. I’m definitely the kind of person who would enjoy preparing their own picnic food, researching recipes, getting everything prepared a day ahead but it’s not always possible to plan in advance, especially with England’s unpredictable weather
