The idea of a picnic has a little nostalgic note for me. All that woven baskets, beautifully aged cutlery and woolen plaids make you think of old times and summer adventure stories. I was thinking—what snack would Mole and Rat from “Wind In the willows” have on their day at the river? Or three in the boat (with their dog)? And I can see them sitting on a riverbank, drinking hot coffee from the enamel mugs. Water floats lazily and the air is fresh and sweet scented. So many new places and faces are awaiting them! I would love to join them so much.
Vegetables are gorgeous and they need more appreciation of their beauty (and health benefits). Vegetable platter is a way to add more beneficial food to your diet with fun and ease. It’s so simple and in the same time not boring - you can choose veggies you like, you can pick a dip to accompany, you can eat it on its own or serve as a garnish. So I want to celebrate this magical dish!
