With summer almost here, there is no better way to enjoy the glorious, British sunshine than to pack the hamper and head out to your favourite picnic spot for some al fresco fun. This summer Nathan Outlaw, Cornish Michelin-starred chef, is encouraging us to fill our picnic hampers with delicious, good quality foods.
Nathan has a real love of Britains favourite cheese, Cheddar, and is a passionate supporter of everything Cornish. So there's no surprise that Nathan has created some very easy and extremely tasty recipes, using Davidstow Cornish Cheddar, which will soon become true picnic rug favourites.
Preparation Time: 10
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

1 head of celery, washed and sliced thinly
100ml white wine
100ml white wine vinegar
100g caster sugar
30g toasted fennel seeds

Place every ingredient into a pan and bring to the simmer. Allow to cool and store in the fridge in a airtight container.
200g "Cracker", sliced
4 figs cut into quarters and grilled
A few soft salad leaves

Cut the scones in half and on the cut side place a spoon of celery followed by some cheese. Place the figs on top of the cheese and then add a little more cheese. Grill the scones until the cheese starts to melt. Serve with a few salad leaves, a little olive oil and more pickled celery.
