Massachusetts: Walden Pond

6 of 11

Chef: Will Gilson, Garden at the Cellar, Cambridge, and Herb Lyceum, Groton.

Favorite Picnic Spot: “There’s a reason why [Henry David] Thoreau found Walden Pond so peaceful and tranquil. It’s just 25 minutes from Boston and a great place to spend an afternoon.”

Favorite Picnic Fixings: “I go to Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge for picnic goods, but sometimes make my own, like radish and cultured butter tea sandwiches, or crème fraîche and cucumber sandwiches with roasted chicken. Rosé wine is my go-to for picnic bevies.”
