Perfect Picnic Recipes with Lurpak Spreadable Infusions


Summer is here and the arrival of this lovely weather means picnic season is upon us. If you're looking for something different to your usual ham sandwiches and pork pies then why not try adding Lurpak Spreadable Infusions to your sandwiches?

Lurpak has just launched Spreadable Infusions - a blend of Lurpak butter and rapeseed oil with added herbs and spices. The three different flavours, Chilli & Lime, Smoked Chipotle and Sea Salt & Pink Peppercorn all complement an assortment of breads from wraps and flatbreads to bagels and pittas. I tried the Sea Salt & Pink Peppercorn Spreadable Infusion on a wrap with some grilled chicken strips, mixed lettuce leaves, cucumber and a drizzle of mayonnaise and it was delicious, the sea salt and pink peppercorn added another dimension to what would have been just a regular sandwich. Next time we have a barbecue I'm going to try the other flavours spread on ciabatta with some marinaded barbecued meats - delicious!

Dan Lepard, one of the world’s most widely read and respected bakers has offered his serving suggestions for the new Lurpak Spreadable Infusions, he says: “Over the last decade there has been a massive increase in the kinds of breads from round the world available in Britain, and with that we’ve shaken off any fear of venturing forth from the classic white sliced loaf. From the softness of flatbreads and wraps through to the intense crust of a sourdough loaf, no texture fazes us anymore and with this comes the opportunity to embrace new ways to spread flavour.
“That’s where Lurpak Spreadable Infusions comes in. With this new range, Lurpak has moved beyond traditional flavours towards bold new tastes including chilli & lime, smoked chipotle and sea salt & pink peppercorn. Lightly whipped for ease of spreading, the range is ready to add a burst of flavour whatever bread you choose.”

Here are Dan's delicious recipes, perfect for lunch or a picnic in the garden on a summers day:
