picnic recipes

Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

My feeling em. It is to take place between 11.30 and whenever so and we will not be there an long except at the beginning. Bearing in mind that it went over 30C at lunch time today and will probably be hotter next week I had alreay ruled out anything with cream, mayo and such like.

I remember a few years ago taking a Northumbrian leek pastry which went down well. I am thinking perhaps a repaeat of that but leaving it with a neighbour so it can be produced further into the event.

On the other hand Mr R says just take a bag-in-box wine!!

As I said Patsy ... it feels as if we’re being treated as some sort of research study rather than a group of foodies exchanging thoughts, ideas, musings and of course, recipes too ... it feels rather like being used ... yes, we chatter around the subject amongst ourselves but it really isn’t the best way to use this board and find out what you want to know. :(

I'm afraid this has been my feeling for a long while Suufs and Pat.

No two ways about it. Let's see if there is a response to these sentiments.

I feel a little awkward here, because my record will show that I have sought help very many more times than I have provided it. However - we are all here because we have one thing in common - food, and a generous willingness to help those who are honestly trying to improve their personal standards. We operate, by and large, anonymously - and a little bit of give and take goes a long way. Well that has been my experience - and I hope I have expressed my gratitude at the time.

Gruney ... yes you seek help, but you tell us why and feed back on how it’s turned out ... that is so rewarding for us if we’ve been able to help. :tu: :hug:

Apart from the friendly exchange of news and views in the coffee shop too of course ;)

When I joined the Beeb board to ask a simple food question, I was astonished at how cliquey it was and how certain behaviour was expected, which to me seemed odd for a public board where people might just come to ask a question and not 'know' everyone. I think/hope I know what's expected now - but others may not, especially if they don't come from middle England. I agree that if you initiate a subject you would normally want to interact with it but we know nothing of the poster or their situation and I find this constant targeting of one person very uncomfortable indeed when they have not done anything offensive.

Another vote for sausage rolls Rats. If the Voisins don't want them chuck them my way :chops:

So Wargarden, have you used your lunch jar yet?

I’m not targeting him/her ... all I’m doing is letting Wargarden know how his/her lack of response to my posts and queries is making me feel ... which is very uncomfortable ... I’ve posted on this thread because others have done so and I’ve joined in with them .. but to be frank, I find it a bit off to be told by the OP that we’re not doing what he wants us to do.

I don’t think I’ll take part in this thread any more .... that’s the first time I’ve ever said that on Wildfood :(
