Ploughman’s Lunch Platter

“This style of dining reminds me of the carefree days of the European food markets of old – from picking out exactly what you’re in the mood for, to having a picnic on a park bench with spectacular views.”

This is the perfect lunch or snack platter when you are pressed for time and don’t have a spare moment to bake your own bread.
