What is better than enjoying a day out on one of the beautiful lakes in the Canberra Region? Doing so, with a picnic and even better than that is doing so with a gourmet schmicnics picnic.
Schmicnics launched late last year with the ethos of taking all the hard work out of picnics. They provide everything for a gourmet alfresco lunch, dinner or celebration! There are two types of Schmicnics:
Hampers are prepared into boxes ready for you to pickup from their lakeside location (The Boat House), these are suited to 2 or more people.
Parties are designed for groups of 25 or more and feature a large picnic grazing table as the centrepiece of your party (setup by them). You can also ‘Schmic” your party by adding in extra furniture, staff or beverages.
We recently got to try a hamper for two and were blown away at the quality, generous portions and taste – Schmicnics even provided a picnic rug and mineral water! All we had to do was pick it up and choose the location for our feast.
This was our mouthwatering menu:
The Doublet Picnic Hamper
Jamon, burrata & peas
Roasted and grilled vegetables, dehydrated tomatoes, chilli stuffed olives
Corn chips with smoked paprika
Smoked Wagyu beef, mustard, pickled cabbage quesadilla
Slow cooked pork belly bánh mì rice paper roll, charcoal mayo, cucumber and carrot

Berries and Meredith’s sheep’s yoghurt
Baked apple frangipane flan, sour cream, almond brittle
