Hi all, we are a family of 4 who will be at a sporting event all weekend. Any picnic ideas? We will need to pack lunch and dinner for Saturday and lunch for Sunday as well as snacks. I need inspiration :-)

Pan Bagnat. Looks fiddly - it isn't and tastes amazing. I was looking for Peta Mathias' recipe however can't find it online. I have a printed one ripped out of a newspaper a few years ago. The secret it to really weigh it down, I used huge Auckland telephone books which raised a few questions from people who went into the fridge the night it was sitting in there soaking up all the yumminess.

Individual bacon and egg pies made in large muffin tins. I add a bit of fresh basil pesto in the middle for a burst of flavour. Yummy and easy.

Fried chicken is always a winner too and you can play with this as much as you like. Fillets in a herbed crumb oven baked are tasty and better for you, and travel better, IMO. Hard boiled eggs, crusty bread - gosh you have got me thinking I need to have a picnic again soon its a great way to eat as a family!
