Get pack­ing!

Easy Cook - - WEEKEND PICNIC -

A cool bag or box is your pic­nic’s best friend. Make sure you re­mem­ber to put ice packs in the freezer the night be­fore.

Pack heav­ier items at the bot­tom, lighter items at the top.

In­vest in some air­tight plas­tic con­tain­ers, such as Lock & Lock, to avoid spills.

Take a knife, a small light chop­ping board and plenty of pa­per tow­els.

The eas­i­est way to trans­port home­made tarts and pies is to leave them in their bak­ing tins and wrap well in foil or cling film.

Un­less you're hav­ing your pic­nic nearby, make sure that you pack food that has been well chilled.

Don’t for­get to add chilled drinks and pa­per cups or glasses – a ther­mos will keep drinks cold as well as hot, es­pe­cially if packed with some ice.

Re­mem­ber to take a bag for your rub­bish.
