I pack my picnic basket with wholemeal rolls filled with salad and turkey breast, accompanied by grapes, home-made ice tea and chocolate tart. Enjoying a picnic out in the open is a lovely leisure-time activity to take part in during the summer. After all, what could be more pleasant than enjoying a delicious meal out in the fresh air before taking a nap in the sun? Although the concept of eating out in the countryside dates back to ancient times, it only became popular in Great Britain during the Victorian period. Queen Victoria regularly enjoyed her meals out of doors which is why she always took a portable cooking device with her for that traditional cup of tea. Nowadays, a picnic after a bike ride or when meeting up with friends in the park is not only a delicious experience but, thanks to Villeroy & Boch, with the right picnic crockery, it can also be turned into a particularly stylish event.
From pickled olives and garlic bread to puff pastries with trout cream, there's no limit to your imagination when it comes to designing a lovely buffet out in the open. To serve and enjoy the small treats out-of-doors, high-quality picnic crockery is the order of the day. Villeroy & Boch's Artesano crockery collection is designed for festive banquets in the open air. Whether you prefer gleaming white dinner plates, delicately decorated French stick dishes or dip bowls arranged on natural acacia wood, the Artesano Provençal picnic crockery reflects the floral motifs from the natural environment directly on your tableware and brings a touch of cheerful freshness to the nostalgic country house style of the picnic blanket. Against a backdrop that is already bright and colourful enough, the white Artesano Original crockery makes a charmingly elegant eye-catcher.
To ensure that Villeroy & Boch's premium tableware effortlessly survives the excursion into the Great Outdoors, it is made from shockproof and chip-resistant premium porcelain in an elaborate manufacturing process. Matching cutlery, also made of high-quality materials, completes the picnic blanking setting. The up to 30-piece picnic cutlery from the Play! series beautifully matches the natural environment and is effortlessly balanced with its plastic handles which make a smart statement. After the picnic, the stainless steel knives, forks and spoons can be herded off to the dishwasher where they can be cleaned ready for the next excursion. In this way, you consciously help to protect our environment as plastic cutlery and tableware are now a thing of the past.
Useful kitchen and serving assistants are not just appreciated on the dining table in the home. When picnicking out of doors, the chopping board and trays, etc. simplify preparation and serving alike. Visually coordinated with the Artesano Original tableware collection, particularly the tray made of acacia wood is a useful tool on which, for instance, drinks or a small snacks can be easily served in a convivial atmosphere. It's hard to cut French stick or fresh bread on uneven ground, which is why you are bound to be delighted with an even surface. When the chopping/serving board is also visually coordinated with the rest of the tableware, the picnic is turned into absolute perfection. A colourful salad served in a white salad bowl with matching salad cutlery skilfully rounds off the small dinner party in the open air.
