Baked Savory Figs
Here are a few tips from the book:
- Make everything the day before so all you have to do it pack it up and go!
- Before you plan the menu, think about cutlery and plates. The more finger food the better! Just don’t forget classy napkins.
- Wrap sandwiches in recyclable butcher paper so your picnic basket doesn’t get too heavy from containers.
- Don’t forget the drinks! Water is fine, but why not stir together an herb-infused lemonade?
