August Bank Holiday

This weekend pack a hamper full of Jamie-inspired grub and head somewhere peaceful with your loved-ones or even on your own. The extra day’s holiday in the UK in August represents the last weekend before the kids go back to school and can be either hot and balmy, or filthy rain!

Imagine the look on their faces when you pull some of these little beauties out of your picnic basket…aaah summer!

First up, how about a sandwich? Forget cheese and pickle, what about pigeon? A much overlooked meat, which is subtle-game in flavour and delicate in texture.

Let’s balance it out for our vegetarian friends with some world-class falafel. This gets everyone gathered around to make their own wrap.

Drinky-poos and definitely not one for the kids! Pack it in thermos to keep it cool and add lemon slices and fresh raspberries for extra interest.

I’m not sure anything beats this gingerbread! Sweet, spicy and indulgent.

Whatever the weather may bring this Bank Holiday weekend, make sure you eat well and look after yourselves – Big Love from the JamieOliver.com team.
