Our Recommended Food Storage Solutions for a Picnic
Arranging to have a picnic in the park always seems like a breeze – just gather some food in a basket, go to your favourite park and enjoy eating with your family and friends outdoors. But we all know its never that simple, right? Let’s face it – how many times have you got up from the dining table because you’ve forgotten a fork or spoon or you need a clean one? Unless you’re picnicking in your back garden, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared for dining away from home!
What to take on a picnic?
A picnic basket doesn’t just need to be a traditional wicker one! There are a whole range of basket styles out there to suit your needs. Will you be packing for the whole family or are you just having a picnic between two? Is this picnic for a date or will it be just a quick lunch whilst the sun is shining? There’s plenty to think about when planning your picnic!
- Make sure your food has already been chilled prior to packing your picnic
- Only remove your food from the fridge as close to leaving as possible
- Keep food covered for as long as possible to keep the cool in and contaminants out
- Keep food and food containers in the shade
- Use a food thermometer if in any doubt
- Discard any food that has been left out at room temperature long than 2 hours
Depending on the size and location of your picnic there are lots of simple and efficient ways to keep your picnic food and drinks cold.
