A Picnic Loaf.

You will need...
One rustic loaf - this is a pan de campagne from my work. 
Pesto - i used sunblush tomato and chili pesto
Salami and parma ham
Rocket and baby spinach
Sea salt and black pepper
Sunblush tomatoes 
Cream cheese 

I have also seen recipes with roast vegetables or feta or smoked salmon i think the beauty of this is you can fill it with almost anything and its the most perfect picnic food. 

To do...
Cut off the top and pull out the middle. 
Spread the inside with pesto and start layering your ingredients repeating until the loaf is full. 
Cover with cling film and put something heavy on top and leave in the fridge for 4 hours.
Put it in the oven for 4 or 5 mins to crisp up just before you go and cover in foil to keep warm.
Cut like a cake.

We had this for dinner in the park one sunny evening and it was more than enough for the two of us.
I adapted this recipe from Leon book 2.
