Quiche is probably the tamest picnic item out there. Favourite of Continental mums, its squishy, eggy taste just can't compete with the excitement of unwrapping a Babybel, and "Lorraine" may well be the least cool name ever given to a foodstuff containing bacon.

But you haven't encountered Claire Ptak's quiche. This ain't your average savoury pastry cowering in a tin foil container. Claire's quiche does Spring Break in Miami and gets its crusts out for the lads—this is quiche gone wild.

RECIPE: Wild Garlic and Feta Quiche

It's all thanks to the addition of garlic—wild garlic, in fact—which infuses the creamy egg filling with a punchy aroma. Claire, who owns Hackney bakery Violet, then crumbles feta onto a buttery, handmade base and decorates with wild garlic flowers.

The perfect addition to any picnic—no wet t-shirts required.
