The weekend cook: Thomasina Miers’ picnic recipes – poached chicken with freekeh salad and kamut cho


Our weather may not be up to much, but the British need no excuse to eat outdoors


Half-term is upon us, and I’ll be spending as much of it as possible outdoors. Whether or not you are in the grips of school holidays, eating outside is something we do justice to in Britain, not least because we are stoically unfazed by the weather, no matter our age. So arm yourself with rugs, jumpers and, if time allows, something homemade. Today’s chicken salad, inspired by a trip to Georgia, is bursting with bright, exotic, summery flavours from a profusion of herbs and light spicing. Add the squidgy, nutty kamut flour brownies, and this is one picnic you won’t forget. For recipe click here.
