    I (shame on me) usually pack in a non-stick pan somewhere. The pans on any let are usually appalling.

      I’d never say shame on you, Martin! I’ve been known to bring my small cast iron frying pan on trips involving the car. Hate having to use a bad pan.

    I think thats a great idea, I would never thing to take any cooking equipment with me on holiday, I just struggle when I get there unfortunately. I will definitely be trying your lentil salad recipe too it sounds amazing

      With two small girls, I know that there’s going to be a good bit of eating at where ever we’re staying – it’s always worth having the equipment to do the job properly!
