Despite his proclivity for "pic-a-nic baskets" it’s unlikely Yogi Bear would have been lucky enough to pilfer the gourmet goods you’ll find in an Applewood picnic box.

He probably wouldn’t appreciate the sophisticated fare if he did.

David and Laura Shea, who run Park Slope’s Applewood, serve up "slow food": they purchase their organic provisions from small, local farms; the meat is hormone and antibiotic free; and the fish is wild, not farmed. Their picnic boxes, which are available for purchase on Celebrate Brooklyn concert dates - except Sunday - include a sandwich on Sullivan Street bread, a blue cheese cheesecake (which is a rich, scrumptious treat if you’re a fan of the pungent cheese), salad and a dessert.

The Sheas claim that even the cardboard box and plastic utensils that come with the food are "reusable, recyclable and/or compostable." Don’t miss the little business card which offers a 10 percent discount at nearby Slope Cellars [436 Seventh Avenue, between 14th and 15th streets in Park Slope, (718) 369-7307].

Applewood boxes are $15 each at the restaurant [501 11th St. between Seventh and Eighth avenues in Park Slope]. To place an order, call (718) 768-2044]. For the Celebrate Brooklyn schedule, visit www.celebratebrooklyn.org.
