out of the ordinary

venison salad

This filling salad may be a welcome surprise to those who crave something substantial on a country walk. We have taken inspiration from a Mayan recipe, which uses leftover meats (traditionally this is venison) to create a delicious salad. 

Shred the venison roughly and place in your salad bowl. Now for the dressing, which is has a refreshing, citrusy tang to offset the richness of the meat. Combine some fresh orange juice with a little lemon and salt, and add finely chopped coriander. Once you have poured this evenly over the meat, it's time to add chopped radishes and cherry tomatoes.

Don't forget to wrap the salad in your favourite kind of tortilla for an easy picnic parcel.

pastry-less pork pie

This delicious recipe uses thin slices of courgette to replace the calorie laden pastry. If you have to cater for gluten-free guests, this is an impressive work of art to surprise them. Everybody can enjoy the juicy minced pork filling without a care. This is an absolutely lovely, lighter option for a picnic.

Minced pork can be combined with seasoning, a little spice and some red pepper. Line your pie dish with thin strips of griddled courgette, and overlay the top of the pie completely. Draining any moisture during and after cooking will help you to emulate that crispy effect of a pastry case.

blueberry watermelon lemonade


This refreshing blueberry watermelon lemonade is the perfect choice during the summer months. It is easy to make and with the natural sugar from the fruit you only need a little additional sugar added to it. If you fancy something a little different you can simply add your favourite vodka or rum to each glass and give it a stir. Dip the rim of each glass in sugar, or serve in jam jar glasses for a portable, rustic effect.
