Picnic Baskets Versus Coolers

Do You Own a Traditional Picnic Basket?

I'll admit it: I'm a bit of a picnic basket hoarder. I own not one, but three traditional picnic baskets. When I'm not picnicking with them to my heart's content, they're used in my kitchen and dining room to store tea towels, napkins, and place mats. It seems as if this gentleman, watching rowing crews compete at the Henley Royal Regatta in Henley-on-Thames, England, is also a fan of the traditional picnic basket. But these days, not everyone is picking up the basket for their al fresco lunches. More often than not, coolers, including soft-sided coolers, are the choice of picnicking crowds. What about you? Are you a picnic basket fan? Or do you use a cooler?
