  • Now, I know sometimes picnic baskets go wrong.

  • So I wanted to show you a few little tips

  • on how to pack the perfect picnic basket.

  • What I've got is a bunch of different storage containers.

  • In here I've got a prawn salad with asparagus and orzo

  • and it's all packed into a nice little container, as is my fruit.

  • Now, you'll see the fruit I've packed with some ice.

  • Alright, so we've got that ready, we've got that ready.

  • I've made a brownie.

  • I've just measured this and it's not quite big enough.

  • So what I'm going to do is just give myself a little treat

  • by just taking off the side there

  • and I'm going to pack it into one of these.

  • Perfect.

  • Right, so make something that is going to fit

  • into the container that you've got, like this one,

  • and then...

  • ..it's not going to go anywhere.

  • OK, so...that can't get squashed. My fruit's gonna be nice and cold.

  • Oh! Deli meats. I've got just a little container here.

  • Start off with the firmer ones like the salami.

  • The mortadellas and the fresh hams that are thinly sliced,

  • we're going to put on top of those

  • because the salamis aren't going to get squashed underneath.

  • If you're going to take some waters, freeze it.

  • So I popped these in the night before.

  • They're frozen solid which means they'll act as little ice blocks

  • in my picnic basket.

  • I found this handy little container.

  • I've made a prawn salad

  • and I've got some shredded lettuce and some radishes.

  • Now, this has got a little compartment

  • so I can go ahead and clip that in there

  • and then pop it over the top there, so that's great.

  • I've got some bread, I'm going to just get some paper,

  • roll these guys up.

  • I've got these little containers here.

  • Some sundried tomatoes, some olives, some little goodies.

  • So what I do with these is I bring them over to my picnic basket

  • and I put them in lengthways so they all stack up

  • so your basket will still close, right?

  • But you do want it to pack firmly.

  • If it's too loose and there's things bouncing around in there,

  • that's not good.

  • So we've got our brownies and our fruit already packed in there.

  • I'm going to put some of these other deli items.

  • So we've got the olives and the sundried tomatoes and the fetta.

  • And then I also have one of these handy insulated bags

  • which I'm going to take with me.

  • So that's why I've got the ice in the fruit in this one.

  • So that's going to keep this one cold.

  • And then some of the frozen bottles of water

  • are going to keep this one cold.

  • So I'm going to put my prawn salad

  • with the lettuce and the radishes in here.

  • My other prawn salad with the asparagus and tomatoes

  • can go in there as well.

  • The ham can go on top.

  • I love have these meats come.

  • I don't even open them up and transport them into anything

  • 'cause they're so perfect for a picnic, so they can slide in there.

  • My lettuce I'm going to put right at the back there

  • because it won't get squashed.

  • I've got a couple of apples.

  • Always put your fruit on the top of the picnic basket.

  • I've got my bread rolls.

  • I'm going to sit those on top,

  • because, again, you don't want to squash those guys.

  • Then this is a good way to transport a little bit of dressing.

  • I've got a couple of little vinaigrettes and dressings.

  • Just stick them into a little jar. Put those in there.

  • And I'll put that jar in the top there.

  • If you've got some little nuts, you want to take those,

  • you can pop those in too, and there you go.

  • So I'm going to zip this one up.

  • And that's going to stay nice and cool.

  • And this one we can squash right down.

  • So I'm all set.

  • I don't know about you, but I'm going to enjoy a nice picnic. See ya later.
