Plan a Perfect Parisian Picnic

Traditional French picnic foods include cheeses (we love brie, chèvre, blue, and camembert), crusty bread, crackers, selection of fruits, vegetables, cornichons, some type of sauce for dipping, butter, and sandwich meats. You can also include a cold salad to round out the meal. Our Parisian-picnic-inspired sandwiches are super simple, yet amazingly delicious: ham and cheese or radishes and butter on a fresh baguette. You can dress each of them up with the addition of Dijon mustard, crudité, or even fruit.

Putting a little thought into host planning ahead of time can help you make your guests feel at home. From the food to thoughtful touches at dinner, to easing the morning bustle, there are myriad simple ways to help hosting go smoothly.
