A Picnic is a fun outdoor excursion where patrons can purchase a hamper or basket filled with different food delights. Picnic food is often fresh, summery, "easy-to-eat" finger food and guests relax on blankets enjoying the outdoors.
The word picnic was born from the idea of "pot luck" or "luck of the draw" where friends would gather at a meeting place all bringing along different dishes and sharing the meal together. The word picnic is based on the French verb piquer which means 'pick' with the rhyming nique meaning -something of small.
Today picnics have become popular on Wine Farms and other scenic areas where restaurants offer the opportunity to choose a selection of fillings or buy a pre-filled basket.
