    About to go on holiday with relatives and trying to make things easy with the food. Your suggestions on this page have made my mouth water!
    Sad thing is, we’re in America, so many of these delicious items are not available here. But I shall gather courage and adapt! Thank you for the virtual feast.

      Thank you Sophie! So many of these meals are made to be wet-weather / small child friendly – we add a few more spices now and, when the sun is shining, spend more time outdoors than at the cooker. Hope you have a fantastic time with your family. Make sure that you get to relax on the holiday too!
