The perfect Victorian picnic, at home
A Spring picnic at home wouldn’t be complete without some of Victoria's best local produce for the perfect hamper.

Up first, fromage, whether it's a creamy brie, an aromatic blue or stick strictly to a harder style cheese, Prahran’s Maker and Monger have the cheese. Pick a Victorian farmhouse cheese platter, basque (burnt) cheesecakes and their famous cheese toasties and have it delivered to the door.

To match, add charcuterie of Wiltshire smoked leg ham, sliced mortadella and country pork terrine from the Goldfield’s Salt Kitchen’s Picnic Box. Tower Hill Farm Spiced Fig Paste, and The Honey Project’s raw Honey, both from the Great Ocean Road and all available for delivery on Victorian Country Market.

Mix in some fresh berries, figs and traditional Bavarian baked Bretzel from Market Lane’s Hofbrauhaus, and available from Co-Lab Pantry. Olives and olive oil from Green Olive at Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula and serving with Australian Macadamia Dukkah from Carlton’s Gewürzhaus.

Pair the picnic platter with a fresh and bubbly Prosecco from the King Valley’s Dal Zotto. For gin lovers, try the European Handshake from Reed & Co Distillery, best served chilled over ice or with a dash of soda water and fresh slice of orange, it’s the perfect spring spritz.

Piccolina Gelateria’s chocolate covered honey comb, and their delectable dulce de leche served with fresh strawberries will satisfy any sweet tooth craving. Anyone wanting to get creative, That’s Amore Cannoleria are offering 'do it yourself' cannoli kits via Co-Lab Pantry.

An abundance of produce ideal for a picnic can be sourced from Victorian Country Market. Anyone that’s feeling a little overwhelmed by all the incredible produce available online, enlist the help of Cookes Food for a Park Life Picnic Box or head to Entrecôte for a Parisian Pique-Nique.

Bon appetite!
