1. Rainbow veggie picnic pie

Vegetarian layered pie sliced into squares on a serving board

Pies, pastries and parcels make great buffet food. Our rainbow veggie picnic pie captures all the colours of summer. Part tortilla, part pie, this multicolour masterpiece is made by layering up beetroot slices, peppers, squash, onions, feta, potatoes, peas, eggs and herbs. You really will taste the rainbow with each bite.

2. Roasted tomato & pancetta quiches

Ever wondered what to take to Wimbledon? These tiny tartlets are full of flavour and always disappear quickly from the buffet table. Our roasted tomato & pancetta quiches are perfect for a portable snack if you're travelling to watch the tennis. Alternatively, go big and make the most of seasonal produce with our flavour-packed asparagus, feta & dill quiche.

3. Tomato, broad bean & burrata salad

Keep things light with a seasonal salad. This fresh tomato, broad bean & burrata salad doesn't take long to prepare, and the creamy burrata with the broad bean salsa verde topping is irresistible.

For health-conscious spectators, our roasted asparagus, pea & egg salad is not only delicious, but also packs in a whole three of your five-a-day. Toss with sourdough croutons and a creamy yet light dressing.

4. Tear-and-share garlic bread rolls

If you're catering for a crowd, our deliciously cheesy tear-&-share garlic bread rolls will go down a storm. Serve directly from the tray so everyone can rip pieces off. For another winner, try our sticky red onion & thyme crown with whipped goat's cheese. The sweet red onion complements salty goat's cheese perfectly in this classic flavour combo, but this clever shape is better for sharing.

5. Pimm's scones

Scones with strawberries and cream on a blue plate

If you can't get enough of the flavours of a summer cup, combine the fruity tipple with another British classic to make our twist on traditional cream tea. Soak the fruit in the liqueur and infuse the cream for a boozy kick, then serve with fluffy scones.

Or, try our super-sized giant scone cake packed with strawberries and fluffy whipped cream. Simply cut into slices to serve. If summer berries aren't your thing, try our lemon drizzle scones for a fresh, zingy flavour twist. You could even go savoury with our coronation chicken scones – soft, fluffy scones with creamy curried chicken.

6. Eton mess cheesecake

Cheesecake with flowers and strawberries on top

Wimbledon just wouldn't be the same without digging your spoon into a dish of eton mess. The combination of crunchy meringue, whipped cream and strawberry sauce is a sure hit. Take this classic to the next level by making this impressive cheesecake version – piled high with strawberries, meringues and edible flowers, this decadent dessert will look impressive on a table spread.

If you're looking for an egg-free version, our vegan eton mess uses aquafaba as a substitute for egg whites.

7. Strawberry & elderflower gateau

Layered sponge cake with cream and strawberries

No Wimbledon spread is complete without a strawberry showstopper. Our current favourite is this strawberry & elderflower gateau bursting with summer flavours. This simple yet stunning dessert uses ready-made sponge flan cases, so it's easy to put together and you can have it on the table in just 30 minutes.

Or, try our strawberry tart with lavender & honey cream, which we recommend assembling just before serving to avoid a soggy base. Alternatively, take the boozy route and blitz your strawberries with rosé wine, lemon and sugar to make a refreshing frosé, or blend with rum in a frozen strawberry daiquiri. If you're looking for a biscuity treat, strawberry & cream roly-polys are great for adults and kids alike.

8. Gin & tonic ice lollies

Stay cool while watching a tense match with our gin & tonic ice lollies, an inventive twist on one of our favourite tipples. Or, try our strawberry & prosecco ice lollies and summer cup ice lollies for more boozy tennis treats. If you'd prefer something non-alcoholic or are catering for kids, serve our watermelon & kiwi ice lollies, or bring the botanicals with fruity raspberry tea & hibiscus ice lollies.

Find plenty more cool treats in our ice lolly collection.

9. Summer fruits cheesecake board

Summer fruits, biscuits and cheesecake mix arranged in swirls on a serving board

A sharing board for dessert is an easy laid-back grazing solution for when you're hosting guests. Less work for you and everyone will love creating their own custom dessert – our spin on the viral butter board, complete with a tempting biscuit selection, creamy cheesecake layers and fresh fruit.

10. Strawberries and cream slice

Strawberries & cream slice

Strawberries and cream is as iconic as Wimbledon itself. Try the classic pairing on a buttery shortbread biscuit base, ready to be sliced into generous squares to share with friends. Despite the stylish, shiny top, it's simple and easy to prepare. For an even speedier version, try our no-cook strawberry cheesecake sundaes.
