PLOUGHMAN'S LUNCH ~ There are no hard-and-fast rules for preparing a ploughman's lunch, as the process is more one of assembly than actual cooking.

Nevertheless, when preparing your own version, Kate recommends making the cheese the focal point; adding Branston pickles, pickled onions, and slices of various fruit and vegetables, and bread.
