This season's most awaited social events are well under way. The Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show wilted at the end of May, Grange Park Opera is now in full swing and Royal Ascot begins next week.   Once settling the fashion and hair related dilemmas involved in preparing for this very grand occasion, it might be worth paying some attention to the specific requirements that circle around dining. Whether it is your first experience or you're a regular goer to the races, you will be reminded that the Royal Ascot very strict picnic etiquette states 'Picnic's must be brought to the racecourse in a picnic hamper'.   Fortunately, LINLEY has that aspect covered...   The Somerset Picnic Hamper was launched in May and is inspired by luxury picnicking and the great outdoors, it has been carefully handcrafted in the Somerset Levels (From where the name originates). The LINLEY Somerset picnic hamper contains the finest accessories including Haviland crockery, Robbe and Berking Cutlery and exquisite horn handled Laguiole cheese knives, as well as LINLEY Trafalgar Champagne flutes. Exuding style and elegance, It is promised to be the perfect companion for your trip to Ascot.

  Now if the next question you're posed with is: What food to fill your beautiful hamper with? Well, LINLEY can help with that as well...   So, to avoid the fate of a shop bought sausage roll, soggy samosa or pork pies that are more pie then pork, LINLEY have found 3 recipes that are easy to make at home but also maintain the authenticity that makes Royal Ascot so British.
